I think the brisbane will have a lower idle power consumption then the 235e. The new 45nm AMD cpu's still kinda suck when it comes to idle power consumption.

Why did Anandtech used the Gigabyte 780G motherboard? Gigabyte motherboards aren't so power efficiënt like Asrock and Biostar

If Anandtech used the Asrock 780G then the powerconsumption would have been lower then the 8200.

Hello SVN - PSU - Will the picoPSU 90 handle the load of 5 WD Greenpower harddrives on the 5V line? Honestly I dont know. The PicoPSU delivers about 6A on the 5v line, so thats 30watts. One 1TB Caviar GP drive will consume about 0,7A on the 5v, so that makes 3,5A with 5 drives. 2.5A will be left for...

Yes, absolute.

De 750GB has 250GB platters, and the 500GB has 166GB platters. The more space on the platters, the faster it is.
