Athlon XP-M vs. XP?
From what I've been reading, there are a lot of advantages of getting an Athlon XP-M over a normal XP processor.
Apparently, they have a fixed FSB and a changeable multiplier, which makes them a lot better for overclocking, as well as being a lot more tolerable to different voltages.
So can I just stick one of these into any normal Socket-A motherboards? I know it will probably first show up as like 600MHz, 'cause it will by default use the lowest multiplier setting, as well as the standard VCore being higher than the processor is rated for (still won't hurt it), but are these CPU's thinner? Would I need like a shim or something under the heatsink?
EDIT: Almost forgot! XP-M's run a LOT cooler too. I've done my research. Still can't find out if they will work unmodified in a desktop though...
