Athlon64 x2 4200Mhz. Uses very low pcu but I do have to set the speed step trip down form 95% to 50% or raid rsync just about kills video because at the lowest setting the bus speed is also reduced. The default 95% seems to be too high for most things. But at 50% it doesn't take much to kick it out of idle.

It does handle the mpeg2 stream in soft mode better then the gpu, but it runs the cores at 80-90%+ so not much head room left.
