Energy Saving Core 2 Quad S - Series

Intel recently announced energy saving versions of its Core 2 Quad Q8200, Q9400 and Q9550 CPUs. These S-Series chips are built using the same 45 nanometer process technology used on the regular models and their performance is the same but instead of having a maximum thermal design power of 95 watts they're TDP is only 65 watts. The S-Series is priced higher than its 95 watt cousin and Tom's Hardware has some benchmarks which will help you decide if the power saving and cooling benefits outweigh the price increase.
