ASRock K7VT6 & "Mobile"

Hi.


Just emailed ASRock to see if my board supports the "AMD Barton Mobile" cpu's and they replied with "No" , well ive just been reading on some forum and this guys sig was like "ASRock K7VT6 with AMD Barton -M- 2500+" i presume the "M" means the mobile version of the barton family. so im confused here can anybody shed any light on this.?

What does it say in your mobo manual? if asrock say no it will
probably say the same
im not familiar with this board why dont you go back to the forum
and ask the guy if and how he has it working on his setup

yes the M does stand for mobile version which may be a clue as these
are designed to run cooler than the desktop version

if you look at this site

http://www.asrock.com/support/CPU_Support/CPUSupport_K7VT6.htm

it says it does support the barton 2500+ but not the mobile
i think it is safe to say that if the maufactors say it wont work,it wont work!
maybe the guy on the forum made a mistake easy dun, oops done Cheesy

Mobiles are the same chip....only difference is that they can run on lower voltages and are unlocked.

Only way to find out is too try it.

Normal desktop chips run at default 1.65v and mobiles run at 1.45v, desktop motherboards dont run this low so default to 1.65v I believe

Try googleing if others are using a mobile chip with your motherboard.

Ps any reason why u want a mobile when u have a 3200+

my 3200+ runs way too high, i mean temperatures so thinking of getting rid of it for a 2500+ barton or the "Mobile" barton.

May be cheaper to buy a new case with improved airflow/cooling capabilities than buy a whole new processor. Your current XP3200+ will run below 50C with the right setup, it's just your current case can't produce the airflow to allow this.

25C case 50C processor diode temp full load and i'm overclocking mine to faster than your XP3200+ Room Temp 25C

What is your rooom temp, this can have an impact on the temps you can achieve?

David,

As has been said before you temp are too high. No point in buying a new processer which is slower than your current one.

Wait till you get your new heatsink and fan and make sure its installed correctly and take it from there.

Sort your current problems out first.
