400FSB-CPU minimum MP is 8x (8x*100=800MHz)
533FSB-CPU minimum MP is 6x (6x*133=800MHz)
Pinmodded 400FSB-CPU's minimum MP is still 8x, which means 8x*133=1 GHz
1 GHz = more heat and power consumption than 800 MHz.
Don't forget an no-pinmodded CPU can also be undervolted, so compare standard-voltage to standard-voltage, and undervolted to undervolted please. "My pinmodded and undervolted cpu has better batterylife than a standard Pentium M" just sounds stupid.
