Can someone add Intel Xeon E3 1240 to Dell Optiplex 3010 BIOS please

I currently have i5 3470
Please tell sSpec of your Xeon E3-1240.
Post screenshots of first (CPU) & third (Mainboard) tabs of CPU-Z with current CPU.
I only have one E3 1240, it is in my main computer. I was going to buy another since they are only $50 US.

Here is CPU-Z screenshot (too large for forum attachment)
Current BIOS A11 has suitable microcode for Xeon E3-1240: version - 0x28, date - 04/24/2012.
Explain exactly what happens when you try to boot with Xeon E3-1240.

That will require me to remove the CPU from my main computer, remove my water cooling and then install it...

Give me a few minutes.
Holy Ship, it works.

Thank you, DeathBringer, you are the best.

The idiots at Dell Community Forums told me it would not work/not compatible.
Nice news!
BTW: you can try to use Xeon with Ivy Bridge core.

I allow to bounce on the post, I have exactly the same PC, a Dell Optiplex 3010 (Format Tour) I3 3220.

According to Intel chipset H61 support the i7 3770 but is what Dell has to bridle with the Bios?

File Name: O3010A17.exe
Importance: Recommended
Description: Windows / DOS (4.51 MB)
Release Date: Nov 29, 2016
Release: A17, A17

Will it work with an Intel I7 3770?

Thank you in advance :-)
Should work.

The micro code for the i7 3770 is inside the last bios ?
