Mobile CPU in Desktop PC Tags: AMD Desktops CPUs Overclocking Last response: February 8, 2006 4:05 PM in Overclocking Share aaaheavy January 29, 2006 9:54:30 PM Hi, :?: Biostar M7VIP Pro KT333 - VT8235 FSB - 200/266/333 RAM - 1G PC3200 CPU - AMD Athlon XP-M 2600+ @ 266FSB, AXMA2600FKT4C CPU has Barton CORE (0.13M) to run cooler in Laptop. The CLK jumpers on mobo are set on 133 for 266 bus. My problem is the motherboard will not read the full speed of the CPU in the BIOS or in Windows (AIDA). AIDA says it is running at 3x266=800MHz. Wcpuclk.exe program gives me 797.73 MHz. The only multipliers the motherboard will generate are 3x266. There is no jumper setting for the multiplier nor is there a place to do it in the BIOS. It is all automatic. I've tried everything I know how to do and can not get it to read the full speed of the CPU which should be 2.13 Gig. Is anybody running the Mobile AMD Athlon XP-M 2600+ @ 266FSB, on a PC? I ran it just fine on another Biostar M7VIT800. It picked it right up without any problems at the correct speeds. I know I'm missing something, but can't figure it out. 8O Any help appreciated, Howard More about : mobile cpu desktop seraphan6 February 7, 2006 4:33:30 PM You need another mobo. nForce2 Ultra 400, preferably. Without access to the multiplier in the BIOS, you'll never get it going faster than 800 MHz. My setups that include the XP-M: Asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev. 2.0 nForce2 SPP - MCP-T FSB 200/266/333/400 RAM 2x512 Corsair 3200C2 Athlon XP-M 2500+ @ 200x11 Gigabyte 3D (air) cooler Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe nForce2 Ultra 400 - MCP-T FSB 200/266/333/400 RAM 2x512 Corsair TWINX3200XLPRO Athlon XP-M 2600+ @ 200x12 Thermaltake Extreme Volcano 12 (air) cooler There are a few other boards that will do this, but few (or maybe even none) quite as well. One from ABit, one from Leadtek, one each from Gigabyte and MSI as well, probably. aaaheavy February 8, 2006 4:05:40 PM Hi seraphan6, Thanks for the reply and the tips. I also think that it would help if the motherboard would support a Barton CPU. I can't find anyplace that says this board (Biostar M7VIP) will support a Barton. That's probably the main problem. Supporting 266 FSB isn't enough. Thanks for the help, Howard 8) Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedAnother CPU swap question.
