What desktop mainboards officially supports AMD Turion 64 and Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processors ? I am thinking to buy cheap AMD Turion 64 or Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processor from a broken laptop. What mainboard can you recommend ?
I am just about to try a Sempron Mobile in an Asrock MoBo. Someone else has done similar with another Asrock board. I'll post here if mine works OK. I chose my board because it has almost the right mix of features. I am currently running a Athlon 64 3200+ in the same board to get everything running properly. The other guy had to update his BIOS before things worked. Problem is you have to have the PC running to update the BIOS. So I'll keep my second hand Athlon CPU until the new one is shown to work. No MoBos officially support mobile CPUs as far as I know. AMD say you can try it and it might work but it's not recomended.
