CPU heat output is roughly linearly proportional to CPU speed, and roughly exponentially proportional to CPU voltage. So reducing voltage will help a lot more, but reducing CPU speed also helps. isnt P=IV. so Power is directly proportional to Voltage? or in this instance Power and Heat are not so l...

The thing that really blew me away was the 2Ghz+ clock speed running at only 0.8v. I'm not sure how much power this thing is actually drawing, but it is doing quite well completely passively! I'm quite thrilled. jesus christ, 2GHz @ 0.8V - that sounds incredible. have you tried passive with that? i...

qviri i'm in the exact same boat as you. the problem with me even though 40GB will be enough i still need Two drives (for backup) so i think i'll take MikeC's advice and get a 3.5inch and put it in an enclosure.

need to look for a good firewire enclosure now :?

i was thinking about 2.5" too but to me it doesnt seem worth it. i think i'll go with 200GB 3.5" spinpoint and an enclosure after if its not quiet enough. the laptop capacity is very low too with prices two fold

bit off topic, didnt' want to make another thread but would anyone be able to estimate what sempron my axp 2400+ would be equivalent to? because i'm thinking of getting sempron and would like to know the model that is comparable to my current cpu (axp 2400+) - thanks.
