Dell Inspiron One 19 CPU upgrade (Board 06390H specification)


I just upgraded my Dell Inspiron One 19 from a Celeron E3300 to a Core 2 Duo E6700 (as I got it for basically £0 on ebay).  I'm now thinking that I could have maybe upgraded to a Core 2 Quad (perhaps a Q9650).

Without any kind of a manual for the motherboard I feel I'm just guessing or relying on possibly incorrect information... like here.  So I'm really looking for a list of the best possible performing CPU's for this board or the boards specification / documentation.  The board is reported as a 06390H via cpu-z.

Thanks for any advice.

Hello!  According to the Setup Guide located here, it is compatible with the Core 2 Quad.  It unfortunately doesn't say which ones.  If it came with the E3300, and the E6700 is working, check voltages and such and find a Quad that will work within those parameters.  Dell computers sometimes are picky in terms of what they will accept even if they should accept something.

You just upgraded the CPU to a faster speed 1066MHz from 800MHz, does it perform faster?

My Inspiron One 19 has a G41 ICH7 chipset with FSB = 1333MHz supported.

A List of Intel Core 2 microprocessors states the Quad Core Q9650 - 1333MHz uses more power - 95W vs. the Inspiron's supplied CPU's 65W .

This thread for the Dell Inspiron One 19 Touch has Dell Support listing only 65W CPUs - the best is Yorkfield Core 2 Quad Q9550, 2.83GHz, 12MB, 65W, E0
