Default Build a Compact Pentium M PC

Last year, Dave Salvator took a look at the inner workings of the latest Intel mobile processor, code-named Dothan. Dothan is the second-generation Pentium M processor, built on Intel's 90nm manufacturing process and sporting 2MB of L2 cache. Later, Jason Cross investigated Dothan's performance in his review of the Pentium M and Aopen's 855GME motherboard, which used Intel's earlier 855 mobile chipset. Since then, Dothan has undergone a front-side bus (FSB) speed boost to 533MHz effective (133MHz actual clock), and Intel has also introduced the mobile 915M chipset as a part of the company's Sonoma mobile computing platform.
As Jason discovered, the Pentium M processor makes for a surprisingly good desktop platform. Although some 915M desktop motherboards were announced at Computex recently, they've been slow in trickling out to the market, probably because of the hot demand for 915M based laptop PCs. ASUS has stepped up to the plate, with its CT-479 adapter card, which allows you to plug a Pentium M processor into a socket 478 motherboard.

Currently, the CT-479 is certified only on two ASUS motherboards, the P4P800 and P4P800-VM. We thought the P4P800-VM plus Pentium M combo would make for the core of a spiffy small-form-factor PC, so we built one, and we're here to share our experience with you. We built the system with an eye towards benchmarking the system in a comparable way with past processor platforms we tested. We won't go into a big song and dance about how we chose most of the components. But let's take a look at the key components we used and how we built the system
