Compatible Processors

Hi everyone i have a LS-36 Foxconn mobo with dual physical processors in a dell precision 670 and i currently have two physical Intel Xeon 2.8ghz processors and i was wondering what processors are compatible with my motherboard or if necessary what is a current mobo that would fit inside my computer?

You would need another Dell MB for it. Is it a work pc you are fixing ?

It would be best to contact Dell.

What`s wrong with 2 Xeons ?

Personally, I wouldn`t waste another dime upgrading it, build yourself a new pc.

Dell, Hp, Lenovo stuff is notoriously difficult if not outright impossible to upgrade.

Xeons cost a friggin lot, and may be not available at all.

In your case, the only thing I can use to get an idea at what stuff could theoretically work is the chipset.

Intel E7525 only supports xeons based on pentium 4 design. Which is something like 7+ years old. And total crap unable to run anything above Office, as it's single-core and not that powerful to begin with.

The only use for your money is buying a new (or used) rig. Anything with less than 5 years will blow it away in any task. (netbooks excluded)

In your case, you need a motherboard, a processor, and a decent PSU. And if your current case isn't using the standard mobo ATX sizes and screw holes, a new case as well. There is no way in heck that anything made for an office could run a 660ti.

64-bit os on (2) 32-bit processors?
Okay, now my question is: Can you run a 64-bit OS on 2-32 bit processors? Note: i don't want to try this, but in theory it should work if the OS can address both processors as 1 64 bit processor, correct?
