Yea, i want to find boards to start buying these cheap mobile processors, so the older generations are my firat targets...
here is some quick info i gathered.
i think the most importent point is to not only get a mobo that supports specific mobile processors
BUT make sure it has a bios that supports some kind of overclocking without voltage mods, lol..
sorry in advance for this long winded post, but i am very excited to start buying my first mobile desktop board and
hooking it to my SS phse and dropping hte temp to -40c and upping hte voltage to see what it can doo....\\\
PS, i am looking and have a thread in the socket 771 thread for the same exact purpose, atacking tyhese low cost chips with overwhelming frost, voltage and the proper tuning........

This article is part of the CPU socket series
Socket G1, also known as rPGA 988A (there are Socket G/rPGA 989 sockets that can take Socket G1/rPGA 988A or Socket G2/rPGA 988B packaged processors), is Intel's CPU socket for their line of mobile Core i7, the successor to the Core 2 line. It is based on Intel's Nehalem architecture which was first available for the 1366-pin "Socket B", which, like its predecessor, LGA775, uses the LGA socket configuration. Later followed the updated LGA-1156 socket, which moved the QPI and PCI-express controller off the Northbridge and onto the CPU. As a result of the lower pin count, LGA-1156 systems, and later, socket G1 systems, can only run in Dual-channel memory mode, as opposed to the Triple-channel mode which is unique to the LGA-1366 platform (and subsequent Xeon sockets). The Nehalem's mobile variant was released on September 23, 2009 in the form of the i7-720QM, 820QM, and 920XM models, followed by the i7-740QM, 840QM, and 940XM models on June 21, 2010. The newer CPUs use the new Clarksfield core, which maintained the same 45 nm manufacturing process as the desktop-based Nehalems. Nehalem received a die shrink on January 7, 2010, under the core name of Westmere. With the Intel GMA HD Graphics Ironlake core packaged onto the CPU substrate, but not integrated directly to the processor die, it goes on to create the Arrandale-based line. The current CPUs to use this package are the Core i7-6x0M series, the Core i5-4x0M series, the Core i5-5x0M series, the Core i3-3x0M series, and finally the Pentium P6x00 series and Celeron P4x00 series which were released on March 28, 2010. However, not all of these are available for Socket G1, as some of them are only available in a BGA package.
Socket M (mPGA478MT) is a CPU interface introduced by Intel in 2006 for the Intel Core line of mobile processors.

is the mobile processor socket replacement for Core microarchitecture chips such as Core 2 Duo. It launched on May 9, 2007, as part of the Santa Rosa platform with the Merom and Penryn processors

QM67 (Cougar Point) chipset BOARDS / Socket G2 (rPGA 988B) [ top ]
Supermicro X9SCV-Q and X9SCV-QV4 motherboards based on the Intel QM67 chipset support Intel's 2nd Generation Core i7/i5/i3, Pentium and Celeron Mobile processors compatible with the socket G2 (rPGA 988B). The compact mini-ITX motherboards are ideal for high-performance, low-power embedded applications, with features that include support for 16GB DDR3 Memory, SATA 3 & SATA 2 HDD/SSD storage with RAID support, Dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN Ports, PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot for added Graphics, Networking or I/O expansion. Additional features include support for Intel's Active Management Technology (vPro 7.0, AMT 7.0) for remote management, security (TPM 1.2) and DC power options.
Sockets G1 and G2 have the same number of pin holes, but they are not compatible with each other due to different position of one pin hole.
