Hi,

Which CPUs are very power efficient, and which clocks would be the best for them.

Thanks in advance.

You can look at AMD's 45W Dual Cores. However, seeing as this is the AMD section, the most power efficient way would be to underclock and undervolt a Penryn 45nm CPU, like Flowtek said. Just put your current CPU back to 3 GHz, run it around 1.0V, and you have a power-efficient CPU.

Also, there was a thread recently about the new Intel CPUs coming out, and one of their Mobile Single Cores only pulled 5.5W

the E7200 will do 3.5Ghz+ ad it only costs around 130. Its a penryn has a 9.5x multiplier and draw 65w at stock only. Way better than the AMD 45 yet not much more power required. Its the choice for you.
