I have a q6600 at 3.0 stock voltages and it occurred to me a few minutes ago that well, I don't need my cpu clocked that high, and infact maybe stock is "too high." I mean I only do 1 thing on my comp which is surf the internet (no games im interested to play right now) so its not like I need my cpu running very high. What I am most concerned about is power bill however. Although it isn't very high, there was a jump from when i wasn't at home (was at college, had comp there) and when I got back. That "jump" was not needed as I am not using my comp intensively anyway. However I do dl things so I leave my comp on all day. What im asking is, if I lower my fsb and multiplier, will I lower pc power consumption (I already have it at lowest voltage)? More importantly, how low can I clock, if lowering clock does result in lower power consumption, so I have just enough power to use the internet? I'm not exactly worried about temps if that is a factor, i live in sf where the hottest it will be this week is 69 degrees including wind.
