Just spotted that you have an Intel Sandy Bridge based video solution in that lot and I think you might have problems with that on CentOS 5. Not entirely sure it's particularly straight forwar... [by TrevorH]

A few days back I published benchmarks showing Intel's Ivy Bridge hardware regressing with Mesa 8.1. While those problems are still outstanding, the good news is that Intel's previous-generation Sandy Bridge hardware appears unaffected.
(This is my first post here. I first searched threads discussing similar problems, but while I found other Sandy Bridge issues they appeared to be different from mine. My apologies if I've missed something).
I'm having some trouble with Ubuntu on a newly built computer using Sandy Bridge. The motherboard is an Asus P8H67-M Evo (Intel H67 chipset), processor is i5-2500k.
I had tried googling for it and had found MSR_PKG_ENERGY_STATUS under RAPL but unfortunately it has support for only newer processors like Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge etc. Is there any other way to get it in older processors?
In early June there was the introduction of the Sandy Bridge New Acceleration Architecture by Intel that dramatically excelled the 2D and 3D performance of their processor graphics on their Sandy Bridge hardware along with previous-generation IGPs. Here is a look at how the SNA acceleration architecture is performing today.
Phoronix: Intel HD Sandy/Ivy Bridge Linux Graphics Performance On Ubuntu 13.10
With most of the exciting Intel Mesa open-source Linux graphics driver updates being now about Haswell or Bay Trail (Valley View), it's been a while since last publishing any benchmarks of previous-generation Intel "Sandy Bridge" and "Ivy Bridge" graphics results with the latest open-source driver c
Has anyone tried using the Ivy Bridge Intel CPUs with the HD4000 GPU built in on 12.04?
I am planning to add 4 more systems to my 'Folding at Home' TeamUbuntu server farm, and I have the option to install Ivy Bridge based i7 chips instead of the Sandy Bridge i7 CPUs I have already installed in my first 5 system in the farm.
I know the HD3000 of the sandy bridge i7 is working happily; but having
Phoronix: Intel Still Working On GPU Mesa Hanging Issues
While Intel's Sandy Bridge hardware is now two years old and has been succeeded by Ivy Bridge and Haswell, the open-source developers working on Mesa are still struggling to address some GPU hang issues with the latest open-source Linux graphics driver for Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge...
