Precision T3500 Motherboard Revisions

Jump to solution

I have seven T3500 workstations and need to replace the motherboard on one of them. After pouring through the forums I've found there were three revisions of the motherboards.

DELL P/N:

9KPNV

K095G

XPDFK 

Below are the motherboard P/N and manufactured dates of the five T3500 workstations I've looked at so far.

P/N MFG DATE:
K095G 15-JUN-09
K095G 24-JUN-09
XPDFK 11-DEC-09
9KPNV 02-SEP-10
9KPNV 25-FEB-11

I'd greatly appreciate it If someone could help me figure out which motherboard P/N is the latest revision.

Looks like 9KPNV.  That said:

These older Precisions are prone to bad capacitors, and with the newest of these being six or more years old, if you can find a board where the seller can guarantee the capacitors have been replaced, even if it's an older revision - you're better off.

You're likely to find that just about any of these on which the electrolytic caps haven't been replaced is very likely to suffer capacitor failure in the near future.
