I have two Dell Optiplex machines with different motherboards and different CPUs. I would like to know if I can swap the CPUs. Here are the details:
Motherboard: Dell - 0F8101
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.4 GHz
Motherboard: Dell - 0GX297
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz
The BIOS info, according to SIW, for Machines 1 and 2 respectively are Dell 7 / Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS v. 1.10 A11 and DELL 14 / Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 2.2.0. I don't know if the former info is accurate, however, because I don't know where SIW reads that info from. I recently ran a full BIOS update for the older machine (Machine 1), which I downloaded from Dell's website.
