Hi guys… first post and I have a question!!
I have a Dell optiplex 790 SFF desktop with an i7 2600 cpu, Because the PSU is not upgradable toa more powerful one in the 790 I’ve picked up a bigger unit,the Dell optiplex 7020 which gives me more room for a PSU upgrade (for gaming) only problem is it has an i3 cpu… my question: is the i7 2600 transferable onto the mobo of the 7020? because this is a newer board than the 790 I’m sorta thinking I know the answer already!! But any advice would be much appreciated…
Thanks..
Jim

Looks like the 7020 wants a gen 4 cpu.

That’s what I thought!!.. thanks for the reply..👍
Hi guys..
Just another question regarding the above… Because I’d need to go to a a gen 4 i7, would this cpu work instead: Xeon E5 1620 V2 ? Is this Xeon equivalent to a Gen 4 i7? It has to go into a Dell optiplex 7020 MT which is currently running an i3.
Thanks again.
Jim
