Hi RicBrooks,

Yeap that's cpuZ. Now the tab that says motherboard. That's what will tell you and us what you have.

Good job! :-)

I'm at work now I will post that shot this evening sorry I posted the wrong one. I was chatting with Dell tech and they gave me info on restoring factory defaults for the bios would that allow the board to recognize the new cpu? Or do I need to move the jumper from 1&2 to 2&3 to clear it on the CMOS. I just am unsure how to switch the cpu and get the board to recognize the new cpu and work coorectly. I don't care if I can access the bios to oc I just want it to run at the rated speed in this particular application.

Hi RicBrooks,

If you're talking to the Dell rep, I would go with their recommendations first. Having the board recognize the cpu is what you want. If it doesn't, then you can go the BIOS route.

Just my humble opinion, of course, :-)

I still can't figure out how to post the screenshot of just the mainboard tab but I think this has the info. I'm not real confident after talking with the Dell rep because first thing she said was I had to change the board but I pointed out it had a standard socket and she started back tracking. I got the feeling I knew more than she did about it and I don't know a lot just enough to be dangerous. She really seemed to want to sell me another computer or get me off the chat session. I really would rather you guys and gals help me out because I think you info is better. So what do you all think abou the board now.
