Intel Xeon X5687 in a Dell Studio XPS 435mt?

Q: Intel Xeon X5687 in a Dell Studio XPS 435mt?

Is there a trick to getting this to work? I have seen where people get Xeon W36XX processors to work in the 435t.

Current set up...
12GB RAM 1333
BIOS 1.1.4

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Its nowhere near simple. The .32 micron tic toc means to me its NOT EVER possible. There are also likely physical and pinout obstructions to doing this. I also am unable to find ANYONE that has used a W3680 or any XEON period in the 435T.

I have a Dell Studio XPS 435MT Desktop that I have been making some upgrades on. I have added new PSU, GPU and some additional RAM.

OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom
MSI Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3 PCIe w/HDMI Low Profile
Kingston HyperX 8GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K2 for 12GB Total.

I also replaced the motherboard as the machine was not working with previous one.

I have noticed the computer tends to run very hot and up to 70 Deg as listed by speed fan.

Is it possible to add a new heatsink? Is there one that would fit the tight confinements of this case. I was thinking about this heatsink.

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7

I'm assuming I have no room to add an additional case fan. I may also need to apply some new thermal paste to cool down CPU. I would appreciate some feedback. Thanks.

A:Upgrading Dell Studio XPS 435MT

100 USD is very little to upgrade. If you change just video card for similar latest generation say SAPPHIRE HD 7750 1GB already $110, it would not require upgrading power supply. Which windows you have, and is it 32 bit or 64 bit? Your memory is very small, if you have 64 bit Windows, however processor is still good, yes it is slower than your laptop, but RAM (memory) also counts, and Operating System? However your laptop would be difficult to upgrade for video card, if at all! Integrated video card in laptop would not allow you to play any serious games without lag and video issues.
Here little comparison for Skyrim only.
XPS 435 with addition of only Sapphire 7750 would allow you to play at Very High/Extremely High, however your memory is on the low side, if you have 64 bit OS upgrading memory is a must.
Laptop the way it is - Low / Medium settings. So Do you like to play your games with good video quality, or you don't care?
Very good detailed information on PC requirements can be found - at Skyrim:System Requirements.
So, if it would be me, if your XPS has 64 bit windows - I would keep it, upgrade video card and memory, spend definitely more than $100. If you have only 32 bit, I would think about it, but is is still possible and most likely would be more enjoyable than laptop play quality.

Hello everyone. I bought this PC about a year or 2 ago and used it for gaming and some amazing multitasking. With new games coming out and others adding new expansions it doesn't quite cut it anymore. I have already added more advanced cooling systems and am waiting for more RAM to show up in the mail, but the main thing I want to do now is add a new Graphics Card and PSU(to power the new graphics). My budget will allow me to spend 200-300 dollars on total. I am a big fan of newegg.com . So I could really use some suggestions on what items to buy to make this happen. One of the major constraints of this PC is the small box size. I cant seem to find out the physical size of say a PSU that would fit into the box without causing any issues. Also say a PSU that would still allow for proper cooling in my system. Here is what I do know about my PC:

Hey everybody!

I have a 2009 Dell Studio XPS 435MT (MT = Mini Tower; see below), and it's current graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce GT240, which is getting long in the tooth. I currently can't pony up the $800-1200 to replace it (and build my own), so I decided to upgrade the RAM from 6GB to 16GB, and slap in a kick-a** graphics card to last me 1-4 years.

The system has a stock PSU, which according to the spec page on Dell.com (PC is at home, I'm away at school for the week), it has a 475-watt PSU.

I already know the card will work with the Motherboard, the card is PCI-express v.3, but backwards-compatible with PCI-express v.2, which is what I have.

My question is about the PSU. Is 475 watts enough for that card, plus the rest of the components? According to Newegg, it needs a 450 watt PSU as the minimum. Plus, I don't recall there being a power cable for the video card attached to the PSU. My current video card, I just had to put into the PCIe slot, and I was good to go. Is there likely a place for me to plug a power cable into the PSU for the video card? Or am I gonna have to buy a new PSU as well? I'm trying to get as much info as possible, since I can't get access to the computer until Saturday..

I have a Dell Studio XPS 435MT Desktop computer. It is running W7 on 64 bit with an I7-920 CPU. I am looking to upgrade the RAM from the current 6 GB it has installed.

It has 6 slots. Is the maximum capacity 12 GB or 24 GB.

It currently has 6 1GB sticks with PC3-8500 DDR3 1066MHz.

I also have tried successfully Two 2GB STicks of Kingston DDR3 1333, PC3 10600, 667 MHZ.

On Crucial it states:

DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-12800
Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 24GB
Slots: 6
Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-12800 with a maximum of 4GB per slot.*

Does 4GB work in one Module or is the max 2GB per slot. What RAM configuration would work best? I hope someone can give me a few answers to my questions. Thanks.

Hello all!

I wonder if anyone could help me shed some light on the best process for the above subject.

I currently have a Dell Studio XPS 435MT (Vista 64bit) running two HDD's in RAID 0 (as from factory) I need to install Windows 7 64bit and would like to also install it onto the new SSD I have bought (Crucial 128GB) as an upgrade.

Could I simply take the current HDD's out (after backing up essential data) to keep safe as backup plan and add the SSD into slot 0 and install Windows 7?? Then possibly add say a 1tb storage drive to the system later?

One solution someone has sent my way is to clone the two 500gb RAID 0 drives to a single 1tb drive then install Windows 7 onto the new SSD and have both drives on a multiboot? Could this work?

I have seen/heard many versions of how to go about this install but no real evidence of a true way?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

A:Dell Studio XPS 435MT - Installing SSD and Windows 7 64bit

It takes 3-500GB drives to give you 1.3TB of storage space because of formatting over-head. 2-500GB drives will be considerably less than 1TB. Keep the 2-500's in a single RAID array and set the SSD as a separate partition for Windows 7

Hi, I have a 435MT and it's beyond maxed out: 1x BD-RE drive, 1x DVD-RW, 2x 640WD Caviar Black SATA HDDs, 1x OCZ Vertex 96GB SSD, 1x Radeon HD 5770, 1x SATA controller PCIe, 1x ATI TV Wonder HD600 PCIe. I notice my CPU cores (i7 920) ranges from 47~50C with normal use (according to SpeedFan) and the Radeon HD 5770 is idle about 57C and with gaming it'll reach about +8C (according to ATI CCC). To support all this, I already have a Thermaltake 500w PSU upgrade.
I really like the OEM cases as they are well thought out with lots of sound proof and vibration proof parts. I would like to know if I can move my Studio XPS 435MT internals to a Studio XPS 8100 or even an Optiplex 745/755 case? Has anyone tried other larger cases also? I really would like to do minimal to no case modification if possible.
I've done a swap of Optiplex GX280 tower into an Antec case long ago and it was a mess :( Don't want to go through it again. TIA.

Hello guys,

I would really appreciate any info on this subject if possible!

I have a Dell Studio XPS 435MT and I have seen a really good deal on a 120gb SSD drive and would like to replace my two 500gb HD's in RAID-0 setup, to hopefully speed up startup times and generally speed up the response of the PC, I also use it with Photoshop and 3D programs so I think this upgrade will help here too. I will probably just use each 500gb hard drives separately for storage or if possible set them up as RAID-0 again for storage but I guess just separately is safer.

My main question is how do I go about installing it?

I have Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit (Dell version). Can I just install this onto the new drive? Or do I have to uninstall from current set up first?

Thanks in advance.


A:Installing SSD drive to Studio XPS 435MT

Do you already have a RAID array set up? If you dismantle the RAID array you will loose all data on both drives and you will have to re-build the array fresh. The 120GB SSD can be used like any hard drive, alone or in a RAID array, but its speed would be wasted in RAID

After trying 4 GiB DDR3 memory from G.Skill, Crucial and 2 sets of Black Diamond - and getting the dreaded "beep-beep" memory POST failure whenever I put more than 1 DIMM in a channel - I found memory that is recognized by the BIOS at the full 24 GiB.
I've been running with it for two weeks without a problem.  I've run memtest, and even have pushed it into heavy paging running some database tests in virtual machines.  (I have a fast OCZ Vertex 2 for pagefile.sys, so it can hard fault at an astonishing rate.)

Although this screen says 1333MHz, the OS and other tools say 1066MHz.

The DIMMs are Kingston KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX

Normally $120 per pair at http://www.frys.com/product/6516823?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG, but on sale in the Fry's stores for $89.99 per pair.  (Note that the page says that they are 1.65v, but that's for 1600 MHz.  The default is 1.5v at 1333MHz - look at the CPU-Z info below.)

A:24 GB Memory working in Studio XPS 435MT for $270

EDIT:  Below is for a 435T/9000, which although released about the same time, is a different model than the 435MT.  However, both are X58 boards that have 6 tri-channel memory slots.  Memory that works in one will probably work in the other.  Try at your own expense/risk (although $67 for a 2x8GB kit or $35 for a single 8GB isn't bad - link)...
Stress testing 48GB in my 435T/9000 now.  So far so good.  BIOS and Pre-boot System Assessment memory test both recognize all 48GB.  Windows 7 Ultimate and HWiNFO recognizes 48GB.  Using 6 x 8GB of Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600 CL9.

Bought 3 of these 2 x 8GB kits.  Will only run at 1066 in the 435T/9000, of course, but with good CL6 timings, I believe.

For any of you looking to revive your 435 try Win8 and a ASUS GeForce GTX 650 1GB DDR5 PCI-E Video Card. You can even keep your 360w power supply as this card outperforms the OEM Radoen HD 4850 and sips about 40w less power.
Win 8 set me back $15, and the GeForce can be had for about $125. For the first time i can run those Dell Video testing routines without stuttering. I haven’t bothered to overclock it yet but it comes with software that will easily change voltages, clocks etc.



A:Studio XPS 435MT ... a new life with win8 and GTX 650 1GB DDR5

The only problem on this model is how Dell put the PCI Express X16 slot near the bottom of the case giving dual slot cards very little room to breathe.  Hopefully, things stay cool enough for you.  The GTX 650 is a pretty decent card and a good choice for the power supply.  However, for the same cost, you can get the better HD 7770 which would work also.  Those old 4800 series cards were real power hogs.

I usually leave my machines on permanently as they are set to download and install updates overnight, only switching off the monitors. Went on holiday and turned everything off but on my return the XPS would not respond to the power button - green light on the PS is on, but dim, amber light on the motherboard is on. Reseated the power cables, no change. Jumpered the green cable on the 24pin connector to a black one - PS fan starts up, but still no boot up. I suspect the PS is faulty but I am having difficulty locating an exact replacement - proprietary ones do not seem to have all the necessary cables.
I have found a 'Dell DW002 H750E-01 XPS 630 750W 24-Pin Power Supply' online - can anyone say if this will work in the XPS Studio 435mt?

Judging by Dell's current take on the overclocking subject, I imagine that it's true that the new i7 Studio XPS system cannot be overclocked even though other manufacturers using the 920 i7 solution report great results overclocking the i7.  Indeed, even CNET reviews such a system making the comparison between the Studio XPS pretty stark, given the similar specs elsewhere.  I believe they overclocked the Velocity Micro i7 920 system to 3.0GHz with no issues reported.
Is there a chance that Dell will be offering a BIOS upgrade that will allow the ability to safely overclock?  Or BIOS update to allow for 1333Mhz RAM to work as stated in the 435MT manual?
On a second issue, I've seen reports that the X58 chipset/board actually will allow for a maximum RAM of near 24GB, double the Dell's reported maximum of 12.  Will the Dell eventually allow for 24GB?  On the other hand, I've seen max 12 reports, too.  Just wondering where it will really fall for the ultimate upgrade.  EDIT:  Appears the 435T board will allow for 24GB (MT stands for Mini Tower and T stands for Tower).
Thanks for any insight here.

The response of the system (no-boot with the Xeon CPU aboard) is your answer:  NO.  This system won't take that CPU.
Since the system won't boot with the Xeon CPU aboard, it matters not which OS you plan to run.

T3600 has Intel ME firmware 7th version - that is why Xeon v2 are not recognized by the 3600 system, they need later 8th version of ME. Upgrade of ME formware is a difficult procedure  - You need to fit the size and other attributes of old ME region. The simpliest way would be to read both BIOS chips from 3610 motherboard and clean data region in ME but I don't have any T3610 systems.

I have a xps 435mt. This computers hardware is more than capable to run Windows 10. I paid big money for this system to last and still going strong. I am disappointed in Dell for this statement.......Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected. This would be a realistic statement if this computers hardware was not capable of running Windows 10. So I guess with that said, no need to purchase another Windows based pc from dell.

A:Dumped by Dell Xps 435mt

Dell only test system models which are within their warranty period. This system was released at the end of 2008. Assuming at most the warranty was for 3 years and the system was sold 1 year after release date that takes you to the end of 2012...
Like most Dell systems sold after 2008 the system will run Windows 10 RS1 64 Bit fine.

Hello everyone!
I have been thinking about upgrading my video card and since the launch of the GTX 1070 I have been thinking about it more.
I did read someone who fitted a GTX 780 (reference blower) into the 435MT case a few years back and just wondered what peoples thoughts were on the above?
If the 1070 fits does anyone see any issues with running it on the old 435MT motherboard? I know it has PCI express 2.0 and not 3.0 but from what I know this will only reduce performance buy a few frames. 
To note I have already upgraded my power supply to a EVGA Gold 650W after the original died.
System specs: 
i7 920 CPU
Original 435MT motherboard
24gb Kingston RAM
120Gb Crucial SSD
1tb WD Black HDD
EVGA Gold 650W PSU

Any info much appreciated!

This is my first post to this site, but I've been reading for quite some time. Hopefully someone will know what's going on here.

I've got a Dell 435MT, it's the Core i-7, 6GB RAM, 3450HD Raedon video card.
I'm having a problem with a fresh install of windows 7 x64.
I've tried this with both professional, and home premium.

Here is what happens.

1.) Boot to CD follow prompts, choose "custom" for installation.
2.) Choose primary partition
3.) Click Install.
4.) the machine works, and reboots once, then comes back for the "completing installation" portion.
5.) At some point here, the monitor goes dark (and into powersave mode)and shortly thereafter will reboot.
6.) From here, when the machine comes back on, I see the "starting windows" screen, and then the monitor will go dark again (into powersave).

There are no further reboots after this, the machine just sits there. Powered on, and not responding.
Has anyone else seen this issue for this particular setup? Is there a known driver issue with this machine?
Any input is appreciated!

6 1GB DDR3 Memory sticks
Gigabit Ethernet
Windows Vista Home Prem. 64bit upgraded to Windows 7 Home Prem. 64Bit

Ok in the original Vista and now in the Windows 7 the customer upgraded to it shows in the properties box and in task manager that 1.4 gb of memory is available. When I tested Ram I pulled all but 1 stick. in the Black slot closest to the proc I inserted 1 gb stick and booted. I get 2 beeps pause 2 beeps as if there is no ram inserted. I installed a 4Gb stick in that slot and get the beeps. in the next slot which is white it boots but says 4GB installed 1.4gb usable.
the i7 8core shows as a dual core.

I swapped out an i5 dual core and it shows a single core

I ran an MRI Hardware test on it (Eurosoft pc-check 7.03) and it shows no errors and ran as a 8 core. I pulled the heatsink to replace the thermal paste and checked the numbers. it is indeed an i7 extreme 8 core proc.

With all of that I am going to assume that the motherboard is hosed. I just am hoping for either a confirmation or a direction for testing.

The Dell community (users helping users forum) would be the best place since there are people there familiar with Dell hardware.

The desktop hardware section would be the place to start.
Desktop - Dell Community

I used to work the Dell forums (10 years) and Dell's have had a history of memory compatibility with non-Dell branded memory. For that reason we always recommended Crucial Memory as it was guaranteed to work in Dell's. Other brands will work but its hit or miss.

How Intel Xeon Processors are different from Desktop Computer Processors like Core2Duo?

How a Server processor performs different from desktop processor of same clock speed?

I am planning to purchase a new computer.

The computer will be used for :

Data Mining.
Web Development
Software Development
Flash/Flex/AIR/Photoshop Work.
Graphic Designing Work(I need better monitor)

Additionally it will be used for software testing and doing experiments with them therefore Virtualization Software(VMWare/Virtual PC) will be also used.

I am not sure what should I purchase? A desktop pc Or a Workstation Computer like Dell Precision?

Workstation computers are very costly.

Please give some suggestions.

Hello everyone. I am a 3D arch viz artist, using 3Ds Max + Vray render. I am looking for additional render power.

My budget is around 2.000 Euros, so I was considering 2 options:

A guy is selling a HP DL580 G7 server, which includes 32 GB ram and 4x Xeon E7540 2 GHz (6-core CPU, based on Nehalem), which is a total of 24 cores / 48 threads.

For the same money, I could buy a 5960X system or 2 systems running a Core i7 4790 CPUs. The hardware in my country is a bit more expensive when compared to USA / EU.

I can't find any benchmarks for the E7540 CPUs, so I am not sure if 4xE7540 would outperform 2 modern 4-core Core i7 CPUs (like the 4790K). That would be 24cores vs 8 cores / 48 threads vs 16 threads.

Vray render uses all of the available CPU cores, no limit there.

A:4 x Xeon E7540 vs Intel 5960X

The 5960X system, if for the same money would be the best buy.

Does anyone know if the HP Z800 workstation is able to take the Intel Xeon X5690 processor? If so, when buying this processor, what other accessories should I be considering so that it'll work properly?

A:Will HPZ800 take Intel Xeon X5690 CPU?

According to the Z800 data sheet, the X5690 is supported. This is a high power Xeon and has a max TDP of 130W so you need a high capacity heatsink with these hot CPU's. I believe not all heatsinks are the same... Others may be able to specify exact part numbers..

A couple of questions: 1.   Which OS and browser are you using?2.   Do you have a Smart Card reader installed? The reason I'm asking is that, once in a while, while using IE 11 on Windows 7 on my similarly-provisioned P70, the browser simply stops working.  Upon close inspection, it seems that the MFA client sometimes fails, even while not being used (I have the reader for future-proofing the machine but have no smart card inserted at present). The latest driver seems to be less likely to cause this problem, but it has not completely been eliminated. Could this be your issue?

First off, I need to explain a few things:

I am quite the newbie to hardware, and everything I "know" has only come from trial, and error. I am not one of those techy guys, and most of what I say will be be entirely based on things that I have learned through my own experiences - Not from facts. I make my decisions based on things that I assume, and perceive. I apologise for any offense, or irritation I may cause within this post. I don't stick to the "norm", and I do not tend to reach out for help, unless I really truly feel that I need it. In this case, I feel the need to ask for help. So here I am.

I know my system is old. Please do not blatantly tell me to get rid of it, or to buy an i3, i5, etc.
I would like the questions that I am asking to be answered directly, and to the point.

Well, I've had a 'Dell Precision Workstation 490' for some time now, and I have used it for 'Online' games such as MineCraft, and RuneScape without any issues. However, I am not receiving as great as a performance as I assumed I would have. I know little to nothing about Xeon Processors, and their capabilities. I only really learn as I go, and since this is the first time that I have ever actually had a hands on experience with Xeon Processors, it's a new thing to me.

I'm looking for a Xeon E3-1235 cpu (LGA 1155 socket) to build a server, I read here in a post from almost a year ago that not all 1155 MOBOs can handle the Xeon cpus.

Is this true?

In Newegg they have normal 1155 boards and 1155 Server boards.
Since normal boards are much cheaper and I won't use all the features in server boards I was planning to get a normal board.

Should I get a server board instead??

A:MOBO for Intel Xeon E3-1235 LGA 1155

Unlike the last generation Xeon 1156 chips (X3440, X3450, X3450), the latest Xeon 1155 chips (E3-1230, E3-1235, E3-1240) are not known for their compatibility with non-server boards. For whatever reasons, manufacturers did not update the microcode on non-serverl boards to facilitate the Xeon 1155 chips.

I would suggest a server board for the Xeon E3-1235 CPU.

I've been having a series of crashes on my Z420 whilst rendering 3D models and generally whilst using the 3D software (cinema 4D). It's using 100% of all 8 cores when rendering and it overheats and crashes, with no notice. I'm wanting to look into the HP liquid cooling solution but I can't find it anywhere online, I've really not got a clue where to get it from and I'm really hoping someone can help me out here by pointing out where to get them because I can't even find anything on the HP site? I'm not willing to alter the affinity of cinema 4D to less cores because I'm told by the IT guy it will just overheat it anyway and it will be at 100% for longer which could lead to huge problems. Oh and software that throttles processes won't work because I'm on windows 7. All help will be massively appreciated!

Hi, HP does offer liquid cooling for some workstations. You might want to contact HP Support or HP Sales for availability of water cooling for your particular model Z420. Review this manual page 6. The E5-1620 only has four cores (eight threads using hyperthreading).  Review the above referenced manual page 3.  Check with the application software manufacturer and find out what they suggest for helping with your issue.  Will a processor with more cores help? Are there other ways and technology (SSD or a faster video card, TELSA GPU processor) that will assist with the rendering process?
