Default Desktop in a Mobile?'s known that you can put the 35w 2400+ XP-M in your desktop computer for good overclocks and whatnot....but is that backwards compatible? Can you put the 2400+ XP in a notebook? Or would people advise against it, because I think my 2400+ runs kind of hot as it is...when I had only stock HSF with no fans and just the side open in my case I had temps of 64C in the notebook especially when gaming it seems like the temps would be insane...I can already feel hot *** air coming out when my friends playing a game on it from the vent near the graphics card....

The reason I ask is cause my moms laptop (the one I'm having to use right now since my computer case is all sliced up at the moment ) has the 2400+ XP in it......muahahhaha so I'd like to pull the ole switcheroo if I could....but I'm thinking heat would be too much of an issue...not to mention the wattage would be nearly double....

anyone elses thoughts?

yeah, i would say that the XP2400+ would be run far too hot to be anywhere near compatible with a laptop. it would be nice to see how far you could push the Mobile 2400+ though... when is your mum out next?.... hehe.
