yea, but Rudster, every little bit counts, yeah lower voltages would save, but wattages would too(less fan usage) SSD- not spinning platter, thumb drives instead of cd drives, and screens that only use power to change (in black and grey)

AMD Athlon 64X2 4200+, 2 GB ram, 2 TB HDD, Ubuntu+SAMBA ♫ Lenovo T410, i5@ 2.4 GHz, 4 GB ram, 7

the reason lower voltages help is because the cpu itself uses less power. the reason they get so hot is because they use LOTS of power.

a C2D(desktop) uses 65 watts of power, the average soldering iron (to put it into perspective) uses 35-40 watts of power. so when you lower the voltages\speed, they use less wattage.
