    Default 3200+ or slower mobile with oc?

    My friend wants to upgrade his processor, he has an ASUS A7N8X-X he was planning to buy the 3200+, but the salesman told him he had a mobile version of the processor(forgot witch one sorry) that would easily overclock to 2, 5 GHz with the stock cooler and it was allot cheaper, he told me it was unlocked and I know this is true, but I want to know if it is as easy to set the new speed in the bios or if it requires precise voltage FSB and other complex adjustments<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    You sure can good buddy!!! I have an Athlon XP-M 2500 overclocked to 2.4 through the bios. It is that easy to obtain theoretical 3400+ XP speeds with the mobile chips. If you are short on cash and need a quick processor, steer clear of the full price 3200 and tell him to pick up a mobile. There is also a wire mod trick that needs to be done to push the envelope higher, I just haven't had the time to do it.

    I'd much rather have the mobile. It'll OC to higher speeds than the more expensive 3200, and it costs less...
