Any ideas: Core i5-560M 2.66 GHz Need motherboard.

post #1 of 3

Got this processor off a friend, an extra part he had lying around. (Traded for it, got it for very cheap). But now ive come to discover what specific model it is and am having a hard time finding a motherboard to put it in. I realize it came out of a laptop but isnt there some mini atx or similar solution i could use to get this working on a desktop/mini case setup?

M as in mobile? If that is so you will need a laptop motherboard with a user serviceable CPU socket. There is no compatible desktop mainboard that will accept that CPU.

Yes thats what i figured. I am somewhat experienced with modding and am willing to do some adventurous hacking if need be. Anyone with experience in that area have any thoughts/suggestions on what could be done to hack together some configuration :O. if not ill just ebay the thing.
