Thanks for reply. I just wanted to be sure before I spent $ on new CPU as another post'r said that there are (2) differenrt boards and only one supports quads?
Hi blushft,U562N is the motherboard which supports quad core.
I have an Optiplex 745 SFF running Pentium D 945 SL900 3.4GHZ/4M/800/05 dual core.
Would like to upgrade to a Quad core.
Am considering swapping out for a different motherboard and quad processor. Where can I find a list of motherboards that can be swapped into my Optiplex 745 and the quad processors that will operate in those motherboards?
thanks in advance.
