    Upgrade I7 860 2.8ghz

    ppersia

      Hi

       

      I want to upgrade the processor of my pc dell studio xps 8100 I7 860, but I am not sure which one could be compatible with the new ones of better performance.

       

      I am looking for the I7-2600 3.4ghz but before buying need to confirm if this is going to work.

       

      Thanks

      Jose Luis

          Hi,

          This information is provided by the system manufacturer, they should be able to give a full list of compatible processors with your DELL* system. There are some aspects we could check like socket type and power composition, in this case the i7-860 is a 1156 socket type and 95W power consumption, but there are other details to check with the system manufacturer to prevent any incompatibility. I suggest to contact DELL* to find out what options do you have to upgrade your rig.
