Overclocking Mobile P4 in a desktop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a shuttle xpc that I built and ended up using a Mobile P4 processor out of a laptop. It is a 3.06ghz processor and is only running at 1.60ghz in my system. I did overclock it to run 200mhz, but my multiplier is set at 12x. I need help on getting this set right. If anyone has any information for me it would be very helpful.

Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

The CPU in question is a Pentium 4M as opposed to a Pentium M, so the CPU is good but doesn't have the advantages of the P-Ms.

Generally issues such as the one you're mentioning have to do with incompatibility between the CPU and BIOS. Check with your motherboard manufacturer to see if there's a BIOS update that incorporates Pentium 4M support. My only other suggestion would be to check through the BIOS for any kind of energy saving and/or thermal options as they may be lowering your multiplier.
