    Anyone here ever try the XP-M?

    Im about to order parts for my setup. I was looking through a site which state processor power consumption. 2500XP-M seems very attrictive as they only take 50watts of power vs 70 for the non mobile. Also, they have a feature where the processor will downclock itself to save power. Im yet to figure out how to take advantage of it. Furthermore,the core seems to be more resistant to heat faliure.

    The diffrence between the XP-M and the regular XP is a measily 10$, 5$ if you want the retail version with the heatsink. Although, this seems to be great, finding a motherboard to support this is difficult. Since its vcore is 1.25v. Although im planning on useing the shuttle 45G with it.

    Anyone here ever use, or know anything about these processors?

    There seems to be some controversy about how many volts this thing needs. I've seen either 1.25V or 1.45V for the XP-M 2500+. I'm inclined to believe the 1.45V since that's what the other mobile XP's run at.

    So far, the ONLY micro-atx board I can find that has undervolt options in the BIOS is this one:
    Biostar M7NCG 400
    It will 'undervolt' to 1.3V from everything I've read about it.

    I've ordered this board myself (along with an XP-M 2500+) and hope to have everything in a week or so. Still need to find a mATX case I like though.

    Will post feedback after I get everything up and running.

    The core for the Socket A Compatible 2500+ XP-M is 1.45Volts, here is the quote:
    AXMH2500FQQ4C 1867 MHz 266 MHz 1.45V 10 0.13 micron 31.00A 45.00W 100C organic Barton 6A0

    Got it from this site:
    http://myplc.com/sony/docs/amd_processor_reference.html

    Check Shuttle 45G's manual to see if the Bios will allow the setting to 1.45V and core frequency of 266 MHZ.

    The other nice thing about the mobile version, is there is no multiplier lock on it.

    I read in a review from Hard OCP that the voltage would go that low. In fact as i was writting this i remeber seeing it on a picture on the site, and here is the full lenth review
