    Please post Mobile Athlon compatible MOBOs

    I know it is mentioned here some where but there is no clear cut way of knowing which mobo is compatible with M Athlon, I am not looking for the HW hack, I am just looking for a mobo that uses the M cpu out the box.

    Biostar M7NCG, also allows custom clocking out of the box. There are others as well. I'm using the Biostar.

    M7NCG w/ mobile 2400+ | 512mb DDR400
    3.5" HDD | Slim DVD/CD-RW
    Linksys USB Wifi | Belkin USB BlueTooth
    Opus 150w | Xenarc 7"

    Shuttle SN41G2 for the barebones or FN41 for just the motherboard.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    i assumed any motherboard will work fine with an athlon XP-M that supports athlonXP's ...

    I've tried in all my boards Biostar m7ncd Pro ... a mini ATX board, etc.

    if you want to OVERCLOCK IT, that's a different story. you have to have access to the BIOS to change frequencies and voltages. you can still do it with some wire tricks (i've done it!) if you BIOS doesn't allow that stuff

    No!

    You need access to the FSB and mulitplier for any mobo running a mobile athlon as they don't report it to the mobo like normal ones do. You can do the wire mod to force it if you don't have access to these but i would prefer a bios solution.

    If you don't do this they run ar the minimun speed of the CPU. normally around 800mhz

    That is correct.

    Im gonna watch this thread. Interested in what's out there... I had no idea a Laptop CPU could be used on a regular mobo. Are these low powered CPUs? Do they require fan cooling? Sounds like this could be a nice alternative to the rather underpowered VIA EPIAs

    Yes, they are low powered CPUs. There are versions that draw 35w and 45w. They still require cooling, but anywhere near as much as a standard AthlonXP. That means using low-profile coolers (designed for 1u or 2u rackmount servers) is an option to save space.
    They also support the PowerNow spec, which will throttle the CPU to save power while under battery. That doesn't necessarily apply for a carPC, though.

    nice thing is they are lower power and run cooloer but they can also be underclocked further and the voltages can be reduced below what normal XPs run at saving a lot of power.
