HELP! Mobile Athlon 64, Turion on Desktop


Recommended Posts

Hello All.

I have a Jetway K8M8MS with a VIA K8M800 North Bridge Chipset with A03 BIOS. I have been reading various post about the Athlon 64 or Turion 64 used with success on a desktop board. I emailed Jetway tech support and they told me that the mobiles were not compatible. The MB has an 800MHz chipset. There are BIOS updates available. Why wouldn't the mobiles work on this board? If they do work, which processor models are the best overclockers? I have PC3200 RAM.

Thanks in Advance.

Well, considering you find a Socket 754 Turion/Athlon, there is a possibility it will work. Although not 100%, it will most likely work.

 

If you're looking for Turions, try finding these (Lancaster):

And if you're looking for Mobile Athlons, try finding these (Newark):

Good Luck :thumbsup:
