Dell Precision 390 Processor Upgrade

This question is not answered

Hey everybody i was looking into upgrading my current processor, Intel Core 2 Duo E6320, and was looking at a  Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 Wolfdale. Im not sure if this is the best choice and if it was the best i could get for $100 or less, or even if its compatible. Please help me out.

  • Hello JJohnson18,

    The Intel 975X Express Chipset shipped with the Precision 390 does not support Intel Core 2 Duo E7500. Hence in order to upgrade the processor, you would need to replace motherboard. 

    For more details, see the compatible products for Intel 975X Express Chipset

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks & Regards
