Default Athlon XP Mobile Question - What motherboard?


Does this CPU require a special motherboard? Will any decent athlon
motherboard work okay. I have micro atx asrock motherboard.

Motherboard:


ASRock "K7S41GX" SiS741GX Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket A CPU


Would I need a motherboard upgrade?

Thanks,

Alan

You need a board that has multiplier manual control.
Mobiles default to 6x multiplier on desktop boards, so you need to be able
to override it to something higher.

So if my board only goes to 12.5x with an unlocked Barton in it now I
would have the same settings with a XP-M chip?
thnx, Ed


I have read that the multiplier on a mobile CPU goes up to 14x. I am not
sure if that is correct or not, mine is running at 12.5x and I have tried
13x and that works as well. Providing that there is no board limitation,
with the multiplier, I can't see a reason why it shouldn't go up to 14x -
with the understanding of what I read being correct.

My mobile CPU is the XP2600.

Yes.

There's nothing stopping you modifying the chip (either your unlocked Barton
or the mobile) to get get higher multipliers however

You can also use any of the various PowerNow multiplier changers (if your
board is not an nForce1/2) to change the multiplier in Windows. You'll need
to fill in the second L5 to get access to multipliers above the default
maximum.

My Abit NF7-S 2.0 runs my Mobile 2500 at 2.5ghz stable as, at mem
timings of 2.2.3.5 at 200mhz FSB

Iam pretty happy with that, though will try to go higher as soon as i
get some more info on the subject iam trying for 2.7ghz, air cooled
maybe more water cooled 3.0 ghz would be FANTASTIC, though prob at
lower memory timings

Hope this helps.

I'm pretty cure there's other ones out there too. The success rate of each
varies a lot. Some may be able to change from one multi to another and
another one may not. It's pretty much luck of the draw

HOwever, it is better to raise your FSB than your multiple.

Because you're speeding "everything" up?
I've just got Corsair Value Select memory. I don't think it can take it.
