You have to open the case (warranty is void), check if motherboard has second cpu socket, then you install the second cpu there. You might need to access bios and enable second cpu in order to make it work.

The best is if you use your system service tag and express service code, you can get Dell online for support.

If the system is under warranty, opening it WILL NOT void the warranty. The only way the warranty would be voided is if installing the 3rd party(non-Dell) upgrade damages hardware. The CPU you can probably get on NewEgg the heatsink you can get from Dell, ebay, or an online shop. You'll also need 2 other parts a fan shroud and a VRM here are the part#'s to make them easier to find
Heatsink- F3550
Shroud- W1701
VRM- NJ664
