I've found nothing about undervoltable Biostar motherboard. Are you sure about them offering a MATX motherboard with undervolting?

Do you know which model? The website is good but the manuals I've downloaded so far don't mention anything at all about the BIOS options.

Undervoltable M-ATX s478 800FSB motherboard

I've been searching for a Micro ATX motherboard which supports VCore undervolting and bus speed control. I've come across a couple of Gigabyte motherboards but I already have a GA-8I875 and I wanted to try something different. It seems like an obvious market to target as many people wanting to make ...

Cheers for replying Ralf. It would be great if you could maximise the FSB potential while adjusting the bus speed multiplier to suit thermal requirements. However, I think the x12 multiplier on a 200 MHz FSB is quite a good compromise between performance and heat. Perhaps a point to note if we could...

Thanks for the kind words! I guess setting the voltage through pin mods would be one way of doing it although that would make it permanent which I would prefer to avoid. There is also the possibility that the GA-8I875 just doesn't support a VCore as low as that so even with a modded CPU it might sti...

Thanks for reading it, all comments (especially positive ones) most welcome :D I know it doesn't really compare to the very thorough SPCR reviews/guides but if I get chance to make it bigger and better I'm sure it will become a useful guide for many. I would expect there to be a huge difference give...

My little guide to Mobile Pentium 4 M processors

Hi everyone! Just thought I�d put a link to my brief guide to using these processors in desktops motherboards. I have to admit the main reason I did it was to offer a guide for people buying them from me off eBay (I've posted a link to my auction on my site and also in another post over in the Dea...

Thanks, very informative! I think I'll stick with a decent Gigabyte motherboard because the voltage control is more important to me than outright speed. Shame we can't have the best of both worlds! Time to sell my Abit KT7A RAID in order to fund all this! It was fun while it lasted :cry:. I got hold...

Shame about having to cut a pin just to get memory to work a 1:1. I take it there are no newer BIOS improvements to solve the issue? The Gigabyte's look like a very nice option :D

Yeah, I'd love to know a good motherboard to get me started. Nothing cutting edge, just something to test all these cpu's before putting them in a CF-S969.

I've been watching this thread with great intrigue and now I'm hoping to get hold a few cheap mobile Pentium 4's off eBay it becomes a bit more relevant. What's all this about cutting/bending pins?!? I've googled my heart out but can't find anything more on the subject. Am I right in assuming this w...
