    I always thought Micro-ATX motherboards had problems with Athlon XP-M processors.

    try going for 11.5x 200(would give u speeds off 2.3ghz which =to a athlon 3200+ ) you should be able to do it np since its a mobile btw mobiles can reach speeds off 2.7ghz no jokes at an average off 1.7-2.0v, and since ur doing stock 2.3ghz is nothing but ease for it, just watch the heat dont let it go over 55c at full load, btw most off these mobos wont pick up the name as amd-xpm because they where not given the string name in the bios.....but either way it runs fine dont worry about the name string....btw giving it 200fsb should smooth out sum off the mp3 switching too it did for me, when i switched from a palomino 1900+ running at 150 fsb.

    I read on ASUS website that the latest BIOS update(August) for this motherboard enables Sempron support. Has anyone tried to use a Mobile Sempron?

    That driver that is listed on the AMD website is for Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 & Windows 2000 Versions.

    From reading how the XP-M reacts to the Windows XP's Power Options, it adjusts based on the power settings. Did you try setting the power settings to Minimal Power Management and then benchmarking the speed?

    I hope I am following correctly.
    I have not do any of those yet. Maybe I will do it the next couple days but I don't think it works because the mobo doesn't recognize it as a mobile cpu.

    As for overlock it to higher than it suppose to be, I don't think the carPC need that yet. I am just setup to go for "low power and heat" option.

    overclocking in a carpc is unnecessary, it will use a lot of more current and produces more heat.
    For low power and heat: try lower the voltage a bit, if it gets unstable: upper it.

    My XP-M works on 1ghz with only 1.1V, very low power and quite fast due to the high fsb (200mhz(400ddr)).

    you need to flip a switch on the mobo or change your FSB or multiplier in your BIOS, make sure your motherboard supports the cpu, if all else fails, falty cpu.

    How did you lower the voltage? pin/wire mod? I couldn't find any info on that from the overlocker. The lowest is 1.45xxx V.

    Reviving an old thread as I am looking for a micro ATX board for a mobile athlon. So far i am looking at:

    Asus
    Biostar
    MSI
    Aopen
    Epox

    (all are nforce2 with GF4 MX)

    The MSI is the best equipped with firewire and SATA but i don't think themultiplier is changable in bios. I like Asus boards and they have the boot logo thing which is appealing for use in a car and the epox boards have dual VGA output but only have 2 pci slots (not a big deal).

    I downloaded the manuals on the epox boards and found that the 8rgmI has user controlable FSB and multiplier int he bios and comes with dual VGA and optional SATA. The 8rgm3i doesnt seem to have user selectable multiplier and has the dual vga and optional firewire but maybe the multiplier setting will be enabled in later bios. The epox boards are just quite hard to find in the UK but i have found some suppliers with them for around 45-50.

    I haven't had a look at the biostar manuals yet but i am concerned about the power supply problems reported by Opus users.

    If anyone has used any of these boards any info would be much appreciated.

    Also, matrixPC, i had a look at that site to tell you were to put the wires int he sockets etc and wondered if you felt confident that it was a good solution in terms of risk and reliability especially as it looks like you have to use quite a few wires to get the high FSB and multiplier settings. I was looking at getting a XP-M 2400 but it now looks like all i can find is 2500 and 2600, will the other guides on the site let me know what FSB etc i should be using based ont he serial number as athlons confuse the hell out of me!

    Cheers

    Andy
