I have a PowerEdge 830 with a Pentium 4 @ 2,8 Ghxz processor in it. If I am not mistaken, the server could also be configured with a Pentium D processor @ 3 GHz. But, I am not sure about this. Reason of asking; I'd like to upgrade the processor with a Pentium D 930 processor. That is a dual core 3 GHz processor with the 775 socket.
Anyone who knows this for sure?
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I am not mistaken, that system will support the Pentium D 830 or 840, which are the Smithfield procs. Those are dual core too. Don't think it will support the 930, which is one of the Presler procs.
Hm, when I do a search with Google, I get several results talking about a PowerEdge 830 with a Pentium D @ 3Ghz. That can only be the 930 processor, I thought......
I cannot find a site where al possible processors for the PowerEdge 830 are listed......
I think the 930 Processor has 4M cache and is not supported. My guess is that the highest processor that is supported is the smithfield Pentium D 3.2/2M/800
One of the stepcodes you can search for is sl88r
Well, talked to technical services of Dell and according to them the Intel D 930 proc is a supported upgrade for the PE830.........unfortunatelly I wasn't smart enough to ask which other processors also could be uses as an upgrade. I mean, the 940 or 950 could also be an upgrade....but, I dont know for those ones......
Probably I'm gonna search for a 930 and try it. Should work.........
Well, for the record and Google, I can confirm the Intel Pentium D930 does work in the Poweredge 830. So, VT is now enabled and HyperV can run on the PE830 with this upgrade.
