  • MB Power Question.

    Would anyone happen to know how many "Watts" this mobo uses?

    Also would this CPU be compatible even though, the FBS aren't the same?

    Sorry I don't know about the power consumption on that board.

    As for the processor - it should work fine unless that board chooses to be a jerk about running with a slower processor. That said, I would highly recommend that for a few extra watts and a few extra bucks you with with a 2500 or 2600 mobile unless you are extremely tight on power.

      A 266FSB AthlonXP will work just fine in a 333FSB chipset motherboard.
      I do not know, however, if that motherboard will work witht he Mobile Athlon XP out of the box. You may need to do the wire hack to get it to work. This, of course, voids your CPU warranty.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?



      Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

          Not sure what the motherboard specs are but the processor should work just fine, WITHOUT any wire tricks. However, if you plan on buying this motherboard, get a PSU with a good 12v Rail, otherwise your PSU will fry from too much current being drawn :P

              It should, but there's no guarantee.
              I don't believe that anyone said the Opus wouldn't work.
