Problem

I have a few old computers. I want to use one as a server and keep it running all day. Which of them old Central Processor Units (CPU) is the most energy efficient? Listed is the Typical and Maximum Power Dissipation, retrieved from Old Processor Electrical Specifications.

These are my options:

Measured power dissipation of total computer CPU Typical Power Dissipation CPU Maximum Power Dissipation Description
? ? W 14.5 W Pentium III 550E MHz, Slot 1 (Coppermine - 550/256/100/1.65V S1 10070273-0243 Phillippines 99 SL3N7)
