Optiplex GX260 Processor upgrade

  • I have a 2.26GHZ 533 chip already, and tried to put a 2.8GHZ 533 chip in and it wouldn't boot at all.
    I retested the chip on another pc and it worked fine. Can I simply assume that the power supply current is not enough, or am I missing something here?
     
    Thanks!
  • You tried to use a prescott cpu. Prescott = Not working on GX260.

    Powerleap has an interposer/cpu combo that does work on the 260.

    You must use NORTHWOOD CPUS or POWERLEAP modified cpus.

    My choice was $99 3.06 Ghz 256K cache Celeron D modified via powerelap.
    Works fine with latest GX260 bios.

  • will  a northwood intel SL6PG 3.06GHz with a 500watt power supply? work in the optiplex GX260
