System Power Loss: Overclocking
In terms of the power consumption of the complete system, the margin narrows slightly, due to the chipset. As the Phenom 9100e lacks an unlocked multiplier, the chipset must be overclocked in order to reach 2.40 GHz.
The Phenom X4 9100e system consumes almost 40 W less than the system based on the Phenom X4 9750.
In idle mode, there are hardly any differences. Here, the margin is only 7.23 W.
