Dimension 8200 Upgrade Heat Sink Problem

Greetings, I have recently upgraded my Dimension 8200 microprocessor from a P4 1.8 Ghz to a P4 2.4 Ghz. I used the Intel retail box upgrade which comes with a new heat sink and fan. Everything went smoothly except that the new heat sink is a little to wide and will not fit down inside of the plastic rails on the M/B. The new fan supplied will not work with the OEM Dell heatsink which came with the unit. Anyone else encountered this issue? Comments appreciated. How do I replace the heatsink fan for a dell dimension 8200?

What is the maximum ram capacity of dimension 8200 motherboard


2 gygabytoes are usually the max, you could upgrade the OS to maybe Windows XP 64 bit, but this isn't worth it in such an olde machine! Throw it out and get yourself an ASUS laptop with Windows 7 64-bit, a solid state HD and 4 or more gigabytes of ram instead!.

Want to upgrade my HP TouchSmart IQ504 Desktop PC 2.0GHz processor for a 3.1 ghz ?


First, have you ever changed/upgraded a CPU? It take quite a bit of research to upgrage. If you look at this spec of the Mobo your options are very limited, The Mobo only supports 2 different type Processors, 1, Core 2 Duo (Merom); http://ark.intel.com/products/codename/2683/Merom , 2 Core 2 Duo (Penryn): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penryn_(microprocessor) If you have a 64bit OS consider a memory upgrade, if you haven't already.

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 with a 945GCT-M3? Will it work?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=719&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0

Here you can see the supported cpu list.

The quad core cpu will not run on this mainboard.

Here is info about the quad cpu:

http://ark.intel.com/products/36547/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q8200-4M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB

But you can add a Intel Core 2 Extreme LGA775
This should give a noteable difference compares to the old single core cpu.

Remember also to buy a bigger cpu cooling element.

Here is no upgrade for the bios.


Good luck

Can I upgrade my CPU to an Intel Core 2 duo 1.7


You are basically limited to what was optional on the model. So you can only upgrade to one of the following cpus:

Intel Pentium M 745 (1.8-GHz) with 400-MHz front
side bus (FSB)
Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 710 TJ85 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB;
operates at a lower temperature than other processors
Intel Celeron M 340 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Celeron M 330 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB

And you are limted to 2gb of ram max on this model.

Dell Dimension 4300 PC Processor upgrade


if the sci36-r13 is the stock mobo that came with that pc it isnt worth upgrading
pentium 4's use the LGA-775 socket this is compatible with all pentiums and core 2's (not includeing core i7), so you could put in a core 2 quad if you wanted to but it would not make much difference to performance because your motherboard would not be able to handle some of the fetures
your ram would also reduce preformance

if you wanted to upgrade that computer you would have to replace everything but maybe the case

I want upgrad my dell dimensons prtocessor but i dont know anyu that will fit its 479 slot any sugesstions


According to Dell here are the CPUs that your motherboard (if you have the original one) can use:

Intel® Pentium® 4 that runs at 1.80, 2.00, 2.40, or 2.50 GHz internally and 400 MHz externally;


Intel Celeron® that runs at 1.70, 2.00, 2.10, 2.20, or 2.30 GHz internally and 400 MHz externally.

So, if your current CPU is slower than any of the above, you can replace it with something like this Pentium 4 (2 GHz and cheap) or this Celeron (2.3 GHz) new or used (very cheap) this Pentium 4 (2.5 GHz). Looks like 2.5 GHz is the maximum recommended speed for the motherboard.

I need to upgrade my processor Intel Celeron CPU 2.0 Ghz L2 cache memory 128 kb System bus 400 mhz. What do you recommend.? Thanks


Find out the type of motherboard installed in your system and that will determine your upgrade possibilities.
Check your manual or if competent enough open the case and should be a label on the motherboard telling you what type. Get the number and google for answer
