FWIW, to see the full benefit of reduced power consumption on HP
McKinley boxes, you should move to at least the following firmware
rx2600, zx6000, zx2000: 1.82
These are the currently the latest releases for these boxes (available
at http://support.hp.com). Older revs should work, but you won't see
as significant of an improvement. Thanks,
