    Is it possible to run a mobile Athlon in a desktop setup? If so what are
    the pros/cons?

    Well ive got my Mobile 2500xp in my Abit AN7 board and it great, i dont
    think there are any cons. Ive got it clocked at 11x200 for a 3200xp @ 1.5v
    very cool and fast. I think they run ok in all nforce 2 ultra motherboards.

    I meant to get the mobile 2500 to 3200 speeds 1.65 is needed :),
    though i am running at 1.75, to get my 12.5X200 2.5ghz.

    I can only get mine to run at 11.5 x 200 anything else and it refuses to
    post or load windows. (I am currently running with 2x512Mb 3200)

    Vcore @ 1.7v (needed to get it stable) and the ram timings are at 3,3,3,8

    The desktop chips do it at 1.7v .. so I think that you shouldnt need to go
    over that (or you woulda been just as good off buying a desktop version)

    Can the Desktop version do 400fsb at 2.5ghz, and stay under 40c when
    doing it ?

    I doubt it..
    I doubt your Mob version would do 400fsb either..
    I doubt you'll find a chipset that will go past 280..
    If your having to up the voltage at 2300 PAST what a desktop version is
    using then chances are it's going to be hotter than the desktop version, the
    temp variations between mob&nonmob is that the mob is able to run stable at
    a lower voltage.. Given that your increasing voltage then your also
    increasing the heat..

    Should I be uping the chipset or ram voltages as well? never had to do this
    in the past when overclocking my previous 750, 1GHz or 2400+ chips!
