Default for those of you who use the engery consumption excuse

for those of you who use the energy consumption excuse to go with Intel over AMD (even though I haven't seen any of you on this forum I'm sure you'll link the video to some one who does )

AMD vs Intel - Does AMD really wreck your power bill? - YouTube
