Re: Processor Upgrade For Optiplex 760


The DT power supply does not support Quads.

You are limited to

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E8600/3.33GHz, 6M, 1333FSB

Only the Tower Does.

The Optiplex 760 MT uses two motherboards -
T674K Non-Quad core CPU motherboard
U562N Quad core CPU motherboard

Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q9650/3.00GHz, 12M, 1333FSB

You  you cannot use a quad core CPU on it.
