Dell Precision T7500 CPU Upgrade

Hi

I recently purchased an old Dell Precision T7500, while waiting for it to arrive I am looking at upgrade options for the CPU. It has the second CPU riser.

I know from experience with the Dell Precision range that some revisions of motherboard do not support certain microarchitectures.

Is this the case with the T7500? From Google searching it would appear that there are three revisions of the motherboard possible in this PC. But I cant find a specific listing for any model wierdness, apart from it not supporting the W series of Xeon.

Will all revisions of motherboard for the T7500 support the 5500 and 5600 series Xeons?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @BattNugget ,

You may find this thread as reference. It talks about T5500 CPU upgrade versus motherboard version. While T5500 and T7500 share the same Technical Guide, it should be more or less the same theory on CPU upgrade.

Thanks for your response. Once I get the T7500 and new CPUs I'll report back to this thread for brevity.
