XPS 710 to 720

Hello World

 

Right I have a XPS 710 H2C, and yes want to upgrade to 720.

 

I have searched and searched and I have a few questions

 

What is the difference if any between the ck520 and P611C  motherboards ?

 

Do I need Front I/O panel - XU567 for a 710 to 720 upgrade ?

 

I'm in the UK and other than Thifbay where else can I buy the parts ?

 

Cheers

Ebay, there's sometimes upgrade kits on there. Mostly the sellers say 'US shipping only' but in my experience you can tend to make them change their mind if you contact them. And BTW, what's Thifbay?

Lost in translation from one side of the pond to another (and a typo) - I think Thiefbay is his pet name for ebay rather than himself....

That's right, the revision p611c seems to be the latest. But nobody so far has said anything about the differences between this board and the previous version.

 

I wouldn't know which one to choose. The p611c may be better, but it is also mostly untested since I think almost no 720 owners have it. It seems to have come on to the market recently.

 

Dell may also not want to say what has changed since they won't want to detail any shortcoming in the previous boards.

 

Maybe the p661c mobo runs natively at a higher clock speed?

 

Does anyone know?

I'll check my mobo - it's only about a month or so old. Be right back.

 

UPDATE: Nope, doesn't match either of 'em, sorry.

Re: XPS 710 to 720

There is about a £30 or $60 differnce price wise between the boards

 

Around £200/$400 in the UK !  which as one of Dell parts suppliers said "The the MOST exspensive Board Ever !!!"

 

So lets see what I can find in the US
