  • athlon mobile cpus

    ok i've been trying to search for this but i can't find the answer i need. on athlon mobile processors, are they compatible with any amb-based mobo? i can't seem to find what i need on this. thanks.

    Socket A? Or 754? What kind of athlon.

    Anyway the answer is yes and no. Any socket A mobo pretty much will boot, but if the bios doesn't allow tweaking you may not be able to run it with correct voltage and frequency. Some will autodetect it correctly, others won't.

      And there's the pin mod for the motherboards that won't allow you to change clockspeed/multiplier.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?

        My mobo wont let me change the multiplier so somebody on here suggested CrystalCPUID and that actually worked from within windows..

        Btw I'm running a AMD 2500 Mobile and love it!

          i was thinking of going with just a socket A board. i wasn't too worried about overclocking/underclocking and fsb settings too much. if i needed to i'm sure i could do the mods. i was just wondering if an athlon mobile would work in any amb based mobo. thanks for the answers. you guys are very helpful.

          *edit* what's the difference between the mobile xp and 64 processors?

            It all depend on Mobo, but most/all work just fine.
            I have a SOYO mATX mobo with VIA chipset for sale that sure work with mobile CPU (but not 100% correct speed: +2400 instead of +2500). There is a jumper to select FSB for it to work. No pin mod.

                  ok. i didn't kno if there was a difference in power or anything. idk much about computers or anything but me and my dad have had to rebuild my computer twice now cuz the first motherboard we had went out (msi) so bought another msi board (not a high-end one) and we had alot of problems then on. the ground point came loose and fried the memory, cpu, and 200gig hd. sucked. but prior my dad did somewhat extensive reviews and browsing around on computers so i'm sure i have adequate knowledge on what i want to do and on some parts i want to get. but thanks for the follow-up post. looking forward to piece my future carputer together soon. thanks.

                    Uhhhhh.
                    If you know you're not all that knowledgable about building a computer, do you really think it's wise to begin a project that involves building a computer?

                      yes. that's why we learn about things and get hands-on experience to gain knowledge and experience. and i said i wasn't TOO knowledgeable but i have rebuilt my computer before with all brand new parts. by myself. except we had problems cuz it fried some stuff cuz the damn ground contact came loose and touched some stuff. i'm not trying to smart off or sound like a smartass but i'm just saying. it's possible for me. for anyone really if we just do some research a bit. thanks for all the help so far tho. :-)

                        That's definitely the right attitude.
                        Sadly, most newbies don't look at it the same way.
                        They expect that people who have some knowledge and/or experience just give them the answers to every question that pops in their mind, rather than trying to see if the answer is already available.

                          yeah. that's how i look at it. especially when i was over on the caraudio.com forums, i saw so many people asking for best setups and what sub hits the hardest. there's no "best" subwoofer. my point is, that i quickly learned to read and do research before i asked about anything till i gained basic knowledge of components, wiring, the higher quality/more reliable brands, etc. that's how i look at a carpc. yeah there's alot more involved in a carpc but hey, if you have the incentive and motivation, then some research can go a long way. :-) besides i have to wait til i can get some money saved up, so all i can do is read and research anyways. more knowledge to gain :-) cheers.
