    One of those little things that makes me :)

    I was looking around today trying to find specs on my CarPC's CPU. Originally I thought it was a Celeron 1.8GHz and was dismayed to find out that the Celly runs at greater than 70 watts.

    Well, after this, I decided to run CPU-Z on the CarPC just to make sure I was looking at the right model of CPU, and low and behold I found out that it was in fact a Northwood P4. Not the Celly I originally thought. This is great because the 1.8GHz P4 Northwood draws under 40 watts at full load. In terms of a CarPC environment, it's perfect.

    It was just one of those things when I found out about it, made me happy. One of the "small victories" of my CarPC days.
    CarPC:
    1.8GHz Northwood, Intel 845 Mobo, 512MB DDR, 1x20GB + 1x160GB, Intel GPU, SB Live 5.1

    Sound System:
    Phoenix Gold RSD 65cs 6.5" Drivers, Infinity Tweets, Pioneer 305DVC 12", PPI Sedona 630IX, Alpine MRP-M500

    I think you mean 40w.
    I don't believe there is a CPU out there that would draw 40A!
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Oh my, you are correct. Wow, 40A. Yea, that would pretty much fry everything.

    Page 22, Icc is marked as 84.8A at 3.46GHz. Current on its own means very little without voltage.

    Believe...!
