Ok folks I could use a little advice. I'm building a regular system using a mobile penryn cpu [I want to use a T9300 but will settle for a T8300 if i have to] anyone know of any motherboards that may support this chip? I was thinking of the MSI Fuzzy GM965 Mini-ITX mobo but I'm not sure if it will support this CPU out of the box. Anyone? the idea is to build an uber low power workhorse type machine I figure a 35W cpu with good performance is a great place to start.
Pretty crappy MSI's websites doesn't have a list of processors the board supports. Here's some info for you though. If you're going to use it as a media PC I suggest maybe you check out a mobo using AMD's new 780G chipset. Does native HD playback so you don't need a workhorse CPU.
I beat the Internet... the end guy was hard
Thanks Grahf, thats exactly where I'm stuck believe it or not I asked the folks at E-ITX.com for some help figuring out if they had the older or newer revision of the MSI Fuzzy board. I got a nice reply with a chart from MSI as to what CPUs are in testing and which have been verified the T8xxx & T9xxx chips are in the verification process. But that link toLogic Supplies blog is useful as thats a beta BIOS which does support the CPU.
