Veriton X270-ED5300C - CPU Upgrade

ScutuScutu Member Posts: 8

Hi everyone,

 

I have an old Veriton X270-ED5300C with nForce630i and I was wondering if I can upgrade the CPU to an Q9650 soket 775.

 

As I knwo the mainboard supports all soket 775 cpus, but did Acer included suport for new CPUs in the BIOS?

 

Thanks,
Scutu

    Thank you so much!

     

    So, basicaly the Q9550 (with a better heatsink) is the  fastes I can go on this machine.

  • Hello,

     

    Good news!Smiley Tongue

    Aspire X1700 has the same motherboard than yours and one of original processors is:

    KC.96501.QQECPU.QUAD.Q9650/3G/2*6M/1333

     

    Do you have this heatsink?

    HI.10800.028CPU.COOLER.W/FAN (95W)
    France
  • ScutuScutu Member Posts: 8

    hmm ... so I should be able to go with the Q9650 too.

    Well that's amazing news.

     

    Do I have to get a new heatsink too, or the one that's on the E5300 should be ok?

    I'm not sure if I have that specific heatsink but it looks the same.

     

    I don't play games, this is for my linving room PC - so what it does is internet surfing, and blu-ray movies, but I need more speed.

     

    Thanks again for your help.

  • Hello,

     

    You'll find a white sticker on the CPU fan where is stated the part number.

     

    Do I have to get a new heatsink too, or the one that's on the E5300 should be ok?

    If it isn't an HI.10800.028 (95W), you'll have to replace it otherwise the CPU will overheat.

    E5300: 65 Watts

    Q9650: 95 Watts

    Don't forget also to replace the thermal paste.

  • ScutuScutu Member Posts: 8

    I think that's the one I have installed. Yey! 

    Here's a photo of the sticker.

    Is this motherboard limited at only 4Gb of RAM and only 2 SATA plugs?

  • Hello,

     

    About the heatsink, that's good news!Smiley Happy

     

    Is this motherboard limited at only 4Gb of RAM and only 2 SATA plugs?

    Official specifications:

    1. Up to 4 GB of DDR2 667/800 MHz SDRAM (single-channel support on two DIMMs).
    2. You only have two SATA connectors (orange connectors - your motherboard).
    France
  • ScutuScutu Member Posts: 8

    Hmm, I understand. In this case I'm done with it, I already have 4Gb of memory and both SATA plugs are in used (HDD and a Blu-ray Player).

     

    Should I upgrade to Windows 10 - is this pc compatible?

     

    Thanks again for all your help! Smiley Happy

  • Hello,

     

    Sorry I don't know. I'm not yet an expert of Windows 10.Smiley Embarassed

    I suggest you to create a new topic for this question.

  • ScutuScutu Member Posts: 8

    I will see if I'll get the win10, I'm not crazy about it anyway.

     

    From the provided list with the compatible CPU is the Q9650 the most powerfull I can get?

  • Hello,

     

    From the provided list with the compatible CPU is the Q9650 the most powerfull I can get?

    That's the official list of the original processors so yes.
