I just bought a Dell T5810 and was going to upgrade the CPU. I don't have much experience with these systems so purchased the 2666 and figured it would be ok as it said on the dell web site that it supported e5 v3 and e5 v4. Well come to find out that that specific CPU was made for amazon and was not a standard cpu. Does anyone know if it's compatible with the T5810?

Thank you Gerald. When I bought it I did not check the intel e5 site. I quickly found out it's not even on the list.

Looking around I evetually found out that it's a chip that was made specifically for Amazon. I was not sure if it would post in the bios of a T5810.
They should work. The E5 V3 is freely sold in my country (used).
Just make sure they have same socket, since they are different from another intel CPU.

Just an update in case anyone else ever has this question. Chip worked great after updating the bios. This crazy CPU is unreal. Best one I've had so far. I've tried it so far with a RTX 2060, GTX 1070 ti and a GTX 2080ti. No bottlenecks. Runs VR and just about any game I can throw at it.
