How upgrade CPU in Dell Dimension 8400 from 3.0 to 3.6???
I have a Dell 8400 with 3.0ghz LGZ775 socket CPU with HT and l2 1mb cache. Also gas DEP.
It is also a 5xx series chip.
May be getting a new Intel chip 3.6 off of ebay that is without a heatsink but was pulled from a Dell.
Do you think the current heatsink and fan will work with this new chip or would some upgrade be needed? Seems like the Dell Heatsink is pretty large.
I know I may need some thermal compund.
Thanks for some answers from people that know this machine pretty well.
