Does anyone know what i7 CPUs are compatible with the XPS 435mt system? I have a i7-920 in mine and was wondering about the faster i7s. Also, does anyone know if the system is only compatible with i7-9xx, or are the other i7 models compatible as well (for example i7-8xx).
My system is:
Windows 7 64 bit, i7-920, 500 watt PSU, GeForce 9500GT, 3 GB Tri Channel Ram, 500gb SATA, 1TB SATA
The i7 motherboards aren't like the previous generation where you could only install a certain FSB. With an i7 motherboard, you can install any CPU that you want as long as it's an LGA-1366.
