Re: dell i570 with phenom 965be

Existing CPU cooler is not sufficient enough to cool 965, same goes for 965 AMD cooler, would you be able to shed 31 USD plus tax plus shipping for Ice Edge 400 XT $30.80

This one guarantee to work. You would have to remove motherboard backplate, this job is free, he he. As long as you not getting any video cards, existing power supply is enough.

Re: dell i570 with phenom 965be

ok i found how to do the backplate was in a old post of urs =p ok so now my bios is a03 before i order this can i temporarly use the athlon 2 240 heat sink for this for like 10 minutes to see if it will work? because if it wont work since my bios are pretty old.ill end up ordering a new mobo if it dont work which will take me forever again to work in with the bills

You can easy upgrade bios to A06, the latest. With new MOBO you also will have to get another Win7. If you can afford wasting money (this MOBO will be will be old to accommodate old CPU).

Re: dell i570 with phenom 965be

Your next decision depends solely on your budget and needs, I am able to play Battlefield 3 now rank 25 or 26 (I am casual gamer), played Far Cry all, Crysis all - so this is capable motherboard and overall system for people on budget, just another thought. Just a little favor to me and Phenom II x4 965 BE Inspiron 570 owners, can you please check if you can mount IceEdge on existing backplate, there is slight chance that this could be done, if it is not possible you know already your next steps. And I appreciate you checking my old posts, that saves me a lot of time. If you live somewhere North and your summer temperatures are not that high, you can even overclock you Inspiron with 965. For me, in hot California I had to change case and place strong CPU cooler to do this.

Re: dell i570 with phenom 965be

This is could be difficult, because it runs hot, also you might have to get additional fans, to go cheaper will require you to get additional fans for sure, will post a picture of how cheap was looks like before I changed the case.
