I have a T3400 Precision Workstation with a 2 core processor. I would like to use a 6 core since this unit runs SolidWorks software.
The motherboard on the T3400 is CN-0TP412. If necessary, I can pull the covers on the T3500 to get the model of that one as well.
I have seen posts from Dell showing several processors that should be, or are compatible on the T3500.
Are the processor upgrades available compatible with both the T3400 and T3500? If not, I will upgrade the T3500 only with a 6-core Intel Xeon 6-Core (X5670, X5650) 32nm.
If not, looks like the Intel Xeon Quad Core (W3550, W3565, W3530, E5640, E5630, E5507) processors are available.
The T3400 chipset (X38) supports only quad-core processors:
The T3500 chipset (X58) supports six-core processors, but be mindful of the system's specific requirements - not all six-core processors may work:
