Xeon CPU in a C2D Dell or HP?

Postby Kaos Kid » Sat Sep 24, 2011 12:27 pm

Has anyone here had any experience with skt 775 Xeon CPUs installed in HP or Dell boards that call for C2Ds and C2Qs? I got a good deal on a Xeon 3070 and would like to put it in either an Optiplex 755 USSF (preferred) or a DC7800. Thoughts?
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

Only one way to find out. Install it and see what happens. It might need ECC RAM though, so keep that in mind.

Tried it in the HP7800, it was recognized in the bios just fine (I thought it might since it is a business class computer), loaded WindowsXP as well and it seems to work fine with my non-ECC memory. AIDA64 shows the cores at only about 22-25C each but the CPU itself at 48-50C idle which seems high since I have the cpu fan kicked up to 3800-4000RPM, but I'll check it again tomorrow.


9:30AM edit: Prime95 has been running for 8 hours with no errors. Temps show as follows in AIDA64

mobo 36C
CPU 64C
Core1 40C
Core2 40C

Should I be concerned with the CPU listing of 64C? Or is the only thing that matters the core temps themselves at 40C?

Thanks

well it depends on the manuf. tech but either 45 or 65 nm are fine well above 70c, i have one older laptop that loads around 100c and a newer one that loads around 75c..
