    AMD Phenom II Energy Efficient CPUs tested

    They seem to overclock well using relatively moderate voltages:

    Re: AMD Phenom II Energy Efficient CPUs tested

    Interesting article. I think they missed the point slightly in comparing the power draw of the X3 705e to the Intel Dual cores - or course it draws more power, it's got a whole extra damn core! Nice to see they run well under-volted too - definitely something I was considering for my next HTPC, which I'd like to make more enegry efficient and cooler...
