I have a Dell T5500 with a Intel Xeon E5504 CPU and a Dell 0D883F motherboard. It already has a SSD and the RAM has been upgrades to 12GB but I'm looking to upgrade the CPU.
I know the machine is pretty old but it doesn't run too badly. I'm under the impression the mobo is specific to this model and can't be swapped for a standard home board so does anyone know which (if any) CPU would run on it?
The highest rated CPU that Dell sold with the T5500 was the Xeon X5690 so it will support anything in the Xeon X55xx and X56xx ranges. Make sure the BIOS is up to date before performing any upgrade.
