comment Will Linux select the fastest CPU in a SMP system
I administrate a Lenovo RD220 server at work. I have not seen anything in the documentation requiring a secondary CPU to be of the same clockspeed as the primary. I may be wrong on this tough. Regardless I cant see how this is relevant to the essence of the question.

comment Can Linux scrub memory?
I think you misunderstand the purpose here. You are of course correct in your description about scrubbing however if you for example run a (non-critical) file server on non-ecc ram and have CPU cycles to spare it sounds like a good idea to sooner or later be able to detect corrupt memory and flag it as bad and know about it than to be unaware of a bad memory chip. Perhaps a better wording would be memory validation / verification. Not technically scrubbing perhaps, but still a viable way of reducing the damage done by potentially bad memory.

I am in fact aware of this. I would not like to 'sacrifice' ncq and the main purpose for me posting this is to learn how to get it running under ahci.

I can get the drive to work if configured as IDE in the BIOS. However since the system can see the hardware I would like to learn how I can make it register properly and use it without IDE "emulation".

I can not see my dvd drive. However I can see my raid arrays, drives and so on.
