To be frank, I don't think any of us have tried that. If you can install the processor, I would think the worst that would happen is that it would not work and you would have to reinstall the original one. (A bunch of us tried installing Core 2 Duos in the OptiPlex GX620, and that was how it turned out.)

Cause I don't need the i7 4790, on my workstation running only one app all the time.
