are i7 870 or xeon x3470 going to work on dell inspiron 580?

Jump to solution

Hello, i have bios version A07, and i want to upgrade my cpu since it is very weak for gaming. Can i upgrade to an i7 870? Here in the list of compatible CPUs by the chipset h57, the i7 870 is listed: ark.intel.com/.../Intel-H57-Express-Chipset

My motherboard model is the 0C2KJT

If not what is the best cpu i can upgrade? Maybe i5 760 or Xeon X3470?

EDIT:

I confirm that xeon x3470 works on my DELL Inspiron 580 with motherboard Dell 0C2KJT and bios date 20101113

Hello CSANDREAS1,

The Inspiron 580 has been tested with the below processors.

Intel® Pentium™ G6950
Intel® Core™ i3 - 530, 540 
Intel® Core™ i5 - 750, 650

Your findings in relation to the processor being compatible is correct. However, since the processor has not been tested on this platform, I am unable to assure you 100% flawless functionality.

Hello CSANDREAS1,

As I advised earlier the only processors that have been tested are listed above. You may install the i5 750 as this has been tested. The i5 760 should also ideally work, however, there is negligible performance difference between the two. The only place the 760 wins is the low power consumption.

I read a guy's post in dell forums that he confirmed his motherboard supported an i7 870. If he is correct and i7 870 work for those motherboards, wil xeon x3470 which are similar to the i7 work too ?
