I have an Atom too.  Find the version of Atom that can run with no CPU
cooling fan.  The model number change over time but always the lack of
a fan means they don't use much power.

Notebooks have always been somewhat power effisent.  If you have an
old notebook it can work.

But cost-wiise it is impossable to beat simply adding NTP software to
any erver that is already running.  zero cost, zero added power and so
on.   Any computer that already runs 24x7 is a candidate for this.
