Are there any motherboards that I can use for a base in building a Core 2 Duo T7250 system (socket P - mPGA478MN)?
After making some laptop upgrades of late, I have a T7250, some ram, a hard drive and a bunch of other parts already lying around. I was thinking of making a very small, lightweight system (microATX or even ITX).
The problems that I am running into are:
- It seems that socket P/mPGA478MN was only implemented on laptop boards.
- If I use a laptop board as the base, then I pretty much have to find all the compatible parts or just upgrade an already existing laptop. (Both of which seem expensive and not the direction that I want to go.)
- I remember that - back in the day - there were converters to adapt a processor for use in a non-native slot. Some of these worked okay, but I can't find anything like that.
I have built a lot of desktop systems and upgraded a lot of laptops, but this is a new area for me. Can anyone with more experience in this type of build please help me out?
Thanks in advance,
