I have a Dell Optiplex 390. I just upgraded from an i3-2100 to and i5-2400. It went well and got the increase in performance I expected.
I can find only a few places on the internet that shows an optiplex 390 with an i7-2600. Did you buy your optiplex with that processor or did you upgrade to the i7-2600?
Have you upgraded to the I7-3770? If so, how did it go?
Thanks for your help.

I believe the 390 only supports Sandy Bridge processors not ivy bridge. I was looking the BIOS update and couldnt see a line saying the added additional support when i was considering upgrading my 390.
They realised a Dell Optiplex 3010 i think with the Ivy Bridge ones. Looks very similar so no idea if there would be anyway to get a hacked bios for it.
Always worth a try to see if it works for you though.

|Bigceeloc||Will the OptiPlex 390 take it? It sounds like a nice upgrade, but will you really notice that much of a bump in performance? I hope you have a nice SSD and video card in that box before making this upgrade!|

If it wasnt sold with the system it may not work, depending on wether the motherboard was used in another model like a vostro you could get lucky with a bios update or microcode update
I have an optiplex 990 with a 2400 and its ok, deffinatly better than a laptop.
My gx620 usff on the otherhand is stuck to proprietary eveverthing although I swapped out the smithfield for a presler, the only difference was the L2 cache

I wonder if there is much difference between the i5-2400 and i5-2500......
I would just hope that the BIOS has the codes to recognize it......
