Question Use an P4 Intel M SL725 on a desktop

Hi,
I am thinking of using a Pentium 4 Mobile on a ECC desktop motherboard that uses a
865G (GMCH) chipset. The only problem with specs is matching the CORE VOLTAGE, Intel is telling me 1.3 volt and CPU World Website specifies this M type P4 can work with a core voltage between 1.2 to 1.525V. I wish intel were more specific ! There is no confirmation ont their website whatsoever about core voltage range for that processor.

As far as I know, a desktop motherboard will detect the appropriate core voltage up to 1.525V. In such case, I am understanding it would run at 79.38C wich is within its thermal specification.

QUESTIONS: WOULD IT WORK ? IS IT SAFE TO TRY ? WOULD IT REQUIRE MORE THAN A STANDARD INTEL CPU FAN MADE FOR 3GHz ?

Thank you (see specs below)

Here are the specs I found on CPU World Website:

V core (V) 1.475 - 1.525
Min/Max operating temperature (C) 5 - 75
Min/Max power dissipation (W) 76.58 (1.475V) 77.98 (1.5V) 34.06 (Stop Grant mode) / 79.38 (1.525V)
Processor frequency is reduced to 1.6 GHz in battery-optimized mode (1.2V)
