  • Forum Thread: CPU Upgrade Options for Inspiron 580

    How do you determine what processors are supported by the A07 BIOS on a DELL OC2JKT motherboard? I'm contemplating putting in an i7-880 processor in the LGA1156 socket in place of the i5-650 currently on board? The H57 chipset should be compatible with either processor.
