Hey guys i decided to upgrade my cpu for my dell inspiron 570 and i was wondering if this CPU works (AMD Phenom II B93 2.8GHz Quad Core x4 AM3 Desktop Computer CPU Processor). i just upgrade my bios to A05 if that helps. I brought a new aftermarket stock cooler too.
Yes your Inspiron 570 will support AMD Phenom II B93 2.8GHz Quad Core x4 AM3 processor. It has the same socket type that would allow you to fit it on the motherboard plus the Inspiron 570 desktop does support Phenom II x4 Processors. However this processor draws 95Watts from the power supply. Make sure you have sufficient power available or you may need to upgrade your power supply unit.
Note : Upgrading the processor does not void your computer's warranty. However, if any hardware fails inside the computer due to the processor upgrade, then the part replacement will not be covered under the warranty. Also make sure you update the BIOS to the latest version before upgrading any hardware on the computer.
Hope this helps.
I have the standard 300Watts power supply that came with the system and i added a low profile graphics card. Is my current power supply good enough for the processor upgrade?
Yes you should be good to go with the processor upgrade then with the 300W power supply, considering your graphic card is not a high end one.
Yes you are absolutely right!
It is always recommended to update the BIOS to the latest version before making any changes in the hardware of the computer. You may download the BIOS for your Inspiron 570 desktop by clicking here .
It depends on you. If you are thinking about upgrading your PSU and you can accumulate this in your budget, then I would recommend that you can go ahead and upgrade it. Ideally, go for a 500W PSU as it would sufficiently provide you power for a mid to high level graphic card and to rest of your components too that are inside the desktop.
Its always good to keep a PSU with more wattage as it gives you the option to upgrade / add to your computer's components in the future. Moreover, if you plan to build your custom desktop computer anywhere down the line, or need a PSU for another desktop, you can use the same 500W PSU for that too.
So if it fits your budget, then yes, why not go in for a PSU upgrade as well.
so i tired to install the cooler master hyper tx3 on my dell inspiron 570 but the pins that came with the cpu heatsink won't push down fully. Is there any way to solve this? i tried pushing as hard as i can but it just wont push down and lock in place.....
Well, I did check the cooler master website and the Hyper TX3 does support your processor and the motherboard, so ideally it should fit fine. Since you are facing difficulties in installing it, I would recommend to chat once with their live support team by clicking here .
Hope this helps.
