comment Why does CUDA run slower when lightdm is stopped?
By default the proprietary driver will downclock the GPU to save power and maybe it doesn't switch to a higher clock when there is no OpenGL context present or similar. I would try installing a driver manually (when the installer asks something about DKMS select no, or it fails to install on Debian 6, not sure about Ubuntu).

Are you using the proprietary drivers? make sure 'Preferred Mode' is set to 'Prefer Maximum Performance' under PowerMizer settings(nvidia-settings).

comment Why do DNS queries use loopback interface?
type in 'sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq status', if it's active, all DNS requests are forwarded to dnsmasq first, if the request is cached you'll get 0 ms query time, otherwise it gets forwarded to DNS servers, which will get cached.

comment Can't dualboot Windows 8 with Linux on separate drive
I already answered my own question, the problem was that Windows doesn't like it when a drive isn't recognizable/isn't formatted to NTFS even if it's not the drive i'm installing on, same happened with Windows XP but that gave me something similar to "the other drive has to be formatted to NTFS I can put temporary installation on files on it"(as if it needs 2 drives to install on 1..)

That driver isn't for Quadro's, it's for GeForce's and ION's.

Make sure the GPU's fan/heatsink is not packed with dust, or it will overheat and will behave the same way as you described.

comment Why does Windows 8 takes longer to boot on EFI enabled system when EFI is not used?
Does it show a black screen with a flashing cursor in the top-left corner for most of the 15 minutes?

comment Transferring a Windows 8 license and proper un- and reinstallation
How soon is "shortly after"? If it's a few seconds you could type in the command above and pop out the battery and never boot that installation again.

I think this is it: microsoftstore.com/store/mseea/de_DE/pdp/productID.256400400 but "Download starten" links to windows.microsoft.com/buy with no country code or is it just me?

Is the graph in Task Manager scaled up/down when the clock frequency changes?

What happens when you max out your cpu? does it show 50% or 100%?

If you mean you upgrade for $40 from windows 7 then your license is converted to a windows 8 license.
