Dell Optiplex 980 sff
#1
Hi,

is there a bios or could you make a bios for Dell Optiplex 980 (MB0106 0C522T) that allows me to use the Xeon cpu's?
That way I could use the less costly xeons with a small modification on my lga1156 mb, instead of the i7-875K...

I see there is a bios for other optiplex https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-O...-Microcode

Regards
Beleg

No, I havent taken the chance to buy Xeon... I'm running stock bios, and I dont know if my mb supports xeon. No1 has been able to tell me yet

X3460 has TDP=95W and i5-650 - only 73W. Try to find a new good fan.

not sure if I rly need a new fan... I'm thinking about just overriding the std settings for the fan in bios, since I've monitored the temperatures with HWMonitor and I didnt see any difference of temperatures from the i5.

And I'm not sure if there is a 80mm 5pin dell cpu fan out there for 95w or more... (Got the 980 SFF case)
