http://serverfault.com – Hello all Today I've put together a fedora home server build and it works great. I ran memtest86+ and everything seemed normal. I found the problem. It is in fact 1024 KB per core, but tools like lshw-gui and dmi-decode said the total L2(l3 for lshw-gui) (does not refer to which total - which I assumed total means all L2)is 1024 KB and as well lshw-gui thinks somehow L2 is L3 until i went and looked at /proc/cpuinfo, then everything was fine 1024 KB per core note to self - never trust tools (HowTos)
