I dont know if should buy a 2400+ Mobile which is running at 1.35 stock voltage or a 2500+ Mobile which has a 1.45 stock voltage.

I obviously want the one which will overclock better so does anyone have opinions on what i should get?

Well the 2500 is a barton. So it will have more cache and a higher stock FSB. It's a way better chip. And will overclock really well. I'd go with it.

Well nothing is certain as to which chip will be the better overclocker. However, if it were me making the buying decision, I would go with the 2400+M at 1.35V. I doubt very much that it would take the 2400+M a whole more .1V to go to 2500+ speeds, so it seems like it would be a better overclocker. However, you could get a bad chip either way you go.

Complete lottery nowadays.

I have a 35 watt 2400+ mobile Barton and it's doing 100-200 MHz less then I expecetd (I run it at 2.4 GHz)

Others have this chip running at 2.6, even more.


Either way they overclock more than average desktop Bartons so I would save the $ and be happy with 2.4 to 2.5 which is what they average now.


Overall, 2600+ mobiles have been hitting more on average lately but they cost more too and it's a lottery even with them.

Excaliberpc.Com ships internationally. There is where I ordered my stuff. They had a 150 USD limit, but they changed that policy. Check their website if they ship to your country. But perhaps you do live in the us. :)

Dont buy the 2400+. I made very clear to those in my thread that they are not good OCers. Take the ones that are rated at higher speeds, not voltage.

Hmmm I hope I get a good one.. :eh?: I ordered one..and already has been shipped.
What's the biggest difference between a 2600 and a 2400 anyway? I thought the only difference was the default mulitplier, or am I wrong asuming that?

no, because you are using it in your desktop, you will get a multiplier of 6 from any mobile xp. But you can adjust that in your BIOS (If your BIOS allow you to adjust multiplier) or you can do a pin mod.

I think people mixes up between normal xp and xp-m, normal xp 2400+ are tbred b, but xp-m 2400+ are barton.

some mobiles are great some are stinky, if you buy used from a trusted person you can get an oc range from them. I consider my oc to be decent and it falls right in the ranges that my seller told me.

all mobile chips are based on the barton core. Go with a 2600+ mobile.. they overclock like mad.. I ordered mine yesterday :)

Yeah I know that. But they are all 133 fsb by default right? so if ALL the mobiles in a desktop mobo are being set at 6*133, no matter if it is a 2400+ or a 2600+ what's the crucial/essential difference between a mobile 2400+ and a mobile 2600+ ?
get my point?

my brother got a 2400+ xp-m and it takes 0.2v less then my 2500+ xp-m to get to 3200+ speed thus more headroom, as an added bonus it runs cooler since it doesn't need that much power. But as said many times get information about stepping and pray really hard before picking a chip...
