Good Morning all,
I have 4 dell Otiplex Micro PC (brand new) each have a i7 8700t CPU. I cant get a straight answer from Dell but what would you think would happen if I took out the 8700t and replaced it with the 8700k or even the i9 9900k. Dell also looks like they ONLY put the 8700t in the this line of computer (I wonder why)The are all the same socket and all are Coffee lake.

My thoughts are Cooling issues(it has a SUPER simple forced air foxxconn heatsink/fan) similar to older zeon CPU


Also in all of my reading last night someone put the thought in my head that maybe dell only puts the 8700t because they configured this motherboard only to work with the 8700t basic locking out all other CPU's is that possible?

I've been reading most of the morning, the Cooling issue is going to be part 50% of the issues if it does work.. the 8700t max operating temp is 66C and the 8700k temp is 100C . The heat sink I cant change. Its basically a laptop without the screen. The other 50% is the power supply ;its 85 watts... the 8700k alone is 95w (the 8700t uses 35w) and yeah I can change power supplies (uses a laptop ext. PW) but between CPU, PSW, memory i'd be at $600.00+ for this simple upgrade EACH and I have 4 computers … is that worth a 23% speed increase?? might just be better staying put.... :mad:
