I have a small server build on a Soltek SL-75MIV2-L MB. It's running with an XP-M CPU (2600+ I think). O/S is linux. Vcore I have set at 1.125 and freq at 100MHz, mulitiplier seames fixed at 15 (=1500MHz, CPU temp 38C cel).
I'd like to lower the speed to 500MHz or less.
Unfortunaly the bios don't support the mobile XP, and PowerNow depends on the bios.
I'd like just to be able to change the multiplier in bios.
I think an ordinary Athlon allows change of multiplier by this MB.
Does anybody here know of a mATX socket A board, that support the XP-M in bios (Vcore min 1.1, multiplier 5 or less - and maybe the PowerNow functions) ??
My goal is to get the PC down below 30 Watt total
That takes a efficient PSU, arround 10W to the HD and 15W is left to the MB+RAM+CPU
Maybe a router board is more realiistic - maybe something with a Via CPU - but doing it with an Athlon is more fun.
