Thread Starter 
Hey guy's I recenctly got my hands on a Pentium M 1.6ghz Dothan. I was wondering how much is the processor worth? Also anyone know how high these things get? And what kind of motherboard would it use? It says its socket 479?

Quick answers please

Well, its one of the slower dothans, but great for a laptop if u can switch it out. They usually get a good overclock, into the 2's easily. And theres like 2 motherboards its compatible with, and you have to have the 479 -> 478 adapter.

There are a few S478 Asus boards that can run S479s with an adapter (CT-479 or something similar), and there are a very few other desktop mobos that are native S479. The P-Ms are good processors and can generally overclock very well (low voltage=low heat=nice OC). A new P-M 1.6 probably goes for somewhere in the neighborhood of $200.

This is the Asus adapter that you would need, and it lists motherboards that are compatible at the bottom of the page. You can also search for S479 mobos on Newegg for the short list that are available.

I havn't decided. I don't really feel like putting money to it and I was just looking to sell it. I always have a hard time finding someone to buy my processers thought

I would probaly let it go for pretty cheap.....I received it even cheaper

It's a pretty good chip. Stock, it's not much competition for most desktop processors except like a 2.8GHz P4 or 2800+ Athlon 64, but you can pretty easily overclock it to do extremely well. I had a 730 with an ASUS P4C800-E Deluce and the CT-479 adapter and got it to 2.4GHz on the stock heatsink and it was running with FX-55s at that point. Retail value is about $200, but don't expect that much, mine only sold for $121 on ebay

So once you OC it it can keep up with FX-55's? Because I noticed this thing has a 2mb L2 Cache....which is amazing

I think it's going to get parted out though....I was thinking of trying to make that monitor into a flat panel for my room. I just need to figure out the wireing
