I intend to purchase optiplex 7040 MT for gaming purpose. So I would like to know:
1. Does the motherboard have standard CPU and motherboard power connectors or proprietary ones?
2. Is it possible to replace the stock PSU with a cooler master extreme power plus 600W? If no, then what size /kind of PSU will fit there?
3. Is it possible to fit a gtx 1080 in there?
Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.
Please check the motherboard layout from the below link:
This system has been tested for 240W Power Supply Unit only, we wouldn't recommend a higher powered power supply unit.
You can have any of the below GPU (tested) depending on your motherboard:
* Intel® HD Graphics 530 (Integrated)
* Nvidia GeForce GTX 745
* AMD Radeon ™ R5 340X
* AMD Radeon™ R7 350X
Please private message us the service tag of the system along with your email id, if you have any query.
(Note: please don't mention the service tag or email id on the public forum as it contains your personal information).
Thanks for the info.
Kindly tell me: Is it possible to salvage the CPU, RAM and SSD of the Dell 7040 MT to my personal PC which has compatible motherboard (Z170 chipset and LGA1151 socket) ?
(I know doing so will void the warranty. As long as I dont care about getting warranty support from Dell)
