Centrino in a desktop mainboard?

Hello all, especially you, ET.
Wa curious if anyone knows or has tried to runa Centrino laptop cpu in a desktop mainboard. I was hoping to throw this in an EPoX mainboard of any flavor and even test out it's OC ability in my 4pca3+ if there is a chance it will work.
They are afterall socket 478 with 400 fsb and 512k cache, seems similar enough to have a chance.

you may want to check the precise packaging of the 478pin Pentium-M (IT IS NOT CENTRINO!) that is a name given to a group of components!

You can buy P-M motherboards though but last time I check they where in th £400 region

They're also low voltage parts.

Centrino is the combination of Pentium M with the 855 chipset and the Wireless adapter.

We do manufacture a SBC from our industrial subsidiary IPoX, but I don't think that we'd entertain making it as a desktop product as it's not viable in terms of BOM and mass production.

There is also the fact that performance is excellent due to a small pipline length however MHz do sell.

As I am quite new to the Intel scene, I was a bit confused to the differences between the Pentium M and Centrino. The chip I am inquiring about is indeed the Pentium M 1.6Ghz. So this will not work in say a 4pca3+ or 4pda2+?

No, the Pentium-M chip, as far as I'm aware, is only supported by the 855 chipset.

Yep - in PM and GM variants - discrete and dynamic SMA respectively.

865 and 875 can use pentium 4-M however.
