I have a 2.533GHz CPU in a Sager NP8886. I know from the little bit of research done right here at anandtech that I can in fact drop any 533MHz frontside bus P4 CPU into this laptop. Was wondering if there is any difference in wattage used between newer and older 533MHz fsb chips. Or is it a steady increase in wattage/temperature from 2.533 to 2.6 to 2.8 no matter when the chip was manufactured?
