Yes
Sorry to revive an old thread, does anybody know if there is a bios for this pc that will support an i7-2600k? Thanks in advance

Motherboard is a Dell 042p49 current BIOS is A17
Barrythecat, did tried too boot with it?
Yes i tried to boot the pc with this cpu, it did not post. when powered the pc starts with a yellow power indicator then would normally shutdown and allow the machine to be started displaying a blue power indicator. when it i7 was inserted the pc did the usual power on with yellow indicator but will not allow me to power on again. pressing the power button does not do anything. it also takes much longer at the initial power on state than with the factory cpu installed (i3 3220)

I am currently working on borrowing a motherboard to double check the cpu is ok, but it is very unusual for a cpu to be dead in my experience
Current BIOS has microcode for i7-2600K.
You can try to flash BIOS A09.
Hi bios-mods community!

I'd first like to point out that yes I've see the thread where it's explained, that the Dell optiplex 3010 supports the xeon e3-1240 but does it support more types of xeons? Like the 1220, 1230 or the v2 series of those same xeons? Do those actually support xeon processors or isn't there any support for those cpu's? I know there's no "official" support stated on Dell's website, but maybe you guys can help me find out.

Thanks again for helping me out (even if you don't answer this thread). Big Grin

Thank you, DeathBringer, you are the best.

The idiots at Dell Community Forums told me it would not work/not compatible.
