So i was browsing newegg and found this CPU. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-507&depa=1
Would it be any good for OC'ing? I have a Chaintech KT600 MoBo with 512mb pc3200 kingmax RAM. My current cpu is a duron 1000 so it is definitely an upgrade. Just curious on peoples thoughts. Also what does the 55w reffer to? I havent seen that any many other CPUs before and was curious. Thanks.

55w means how much power it draws from the power supply at stock speed.

Well I wasnt planning on upgrading my MoBo, I just bought it like 5-6 months ago.

Mobiles could be trouble with anything different from an nforce chipset. For some reason some mobos dont like mobiles or the other way around

I never messed witgh a chaintech board but if you don't have an nforce chipset I still think there is a way to get the mobiles too work by unlocking them. The nforce chipset unlocks them automatically from what I hear. You could even go with a 2500+ barton and oc it to 3200+ speeds quite easily with a small increase in vcore. My old 2500+ did 2.3 on air with no problems in an a7n8x-e deluxe which never did oc very well to begin with.

The nf7 and nf7-s from abit are awesome ocing socket a boards.
