comment Oddity about declared multi-core CPU power?
It might be that it's lowering the frequency to save power, but I think /proc/cpuinfo usually shows the maximum frequency (edit: I was wrong, it doesn't do this). Try having a look around /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ or /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ and you should be able to find the list of available frequencies.

comment Hard Drive problem: is it the SATA controller or the HDD itself?
@Shinrai I hooked it up to my voltmeter and the 12V rail never got below 11.93V no matter what kind of stress I put on it. The 5V rail was rather high at 5.19V but still within spec. I suppose I'll replace it anyway and hope that was the issue.

I have an old windows computer sitting right next to it that I should be able to hook it up to. Do you know if this just looks at the SMART data or does other stuff?

It's a mini-ITX motherboard so it only has 4 SATA ports and all are in the same area. I believe they're all on the same controller, but I'm not sure. 150W should be enough for this system, though. The combined TDP of the processor/graphics chip is 73W and the hard drive and motherboard together definitely don't draw more than 50W.
