If so, what kind of success did you have with it? I want to throw together an xp mobile system and using a SFF seems like it would reduce costs.

Does anybody know what SFF's support the xp mobiles also?

well, you'd need really good cooling and airflow to overclock in an sff, so no, overclocking in an sff is pretty pointless. you'll have more bad then good occuring,

well, I'm sure with the mobiles you can overclock it a ways before you'd run into trouble...remember, even the sffs have to handle the heat output at stock voltage for a normal Barton, so you've already got .2 volts you can play with on a Mobile. Plus, overclocking the FSB and lowering the mult can give you higher performance without much additional heat.

Obviously you wouldn't get as high as you could with a real desktop, but it's better than nothing.
