What is the maximum size of HDD that can be fitted to Optiplex GX620

This question is not answered

I make the question and the answer because I searched over Internet and I didn't find the answer.
I bought a 3TB HDD without knowing if it would work or not on an Optiplex GX620.

I successfully add a 3TB SATA3 (6Gb/s) HDD (Western Digital WD30EZRX) as secondary drive on an Optiplex GX620 with Bios revison A11.
No need to add jumpers on the disk. The default HDD settings are functional and the bios report a 3.0 TB HDD and SATA2 (3Gb/s) link speed.
HDD benchmark report a 130 MB/s sequential transfert.

I also test on a Dimension 5000 and it work the same.

  • Go to dell.com or type in to your Internet Browser..... Dell Optiplex  GX620 Speds, you will be directed to the  PDF, showing specifications for this machine, under, hard drives will listed the maximum hard drive allowed for this model. Be mindful that these earlier Optiplex models some were built for specifics types of hard drives. Let me know results.

    With the onslaught of variables by each Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of made computers, and the many design in motherboards, I find it compeling to consult with the Dell community & technicains; when,  drivers, repair,  upgrade & update information is available. I find this site & forum useful & helpful. I got extremely critical updates on the AC97 Audio Driver & the Intel Pro 2200 Wi-Fi Notebook Adapter, when, installing Windows7 Ultimate, 32bit Operating System, on my 2004, 2006, 2007 Dell computers. Exchange of information is a Networking marvel.

    The Optiplex GX620 has four different versions, Ultra Small Form Factor Computer, Small Form-Factor Computer, Small Desktop Computer and Small Mini-Tower Computer, please include the model version you have, when posting a message.  

    Yes, a 1TB internal SATA hard drive will work fine, in the GX620

  • well i found out that. Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)

    Maximum Memory: 4GB

    Currently Installed Memory: 1GB

    Total Memory Slots: 4

    Available Memory Slots:  2

    and it said something about Interhard Drive up to 1TB.... on Dell.com system scaner..

    one more question can i change out the two memory that are in use right now to larger ones? with out  Deleteing all my stuff?

  • I have confirmed that the GX620 is compatible with a matched pair of G.SKILL PC6400 DDR2. It is also amenable to an SSD as a primary boot drive and it is also Windows 8 64-bit-compatible.
