I saw on geekbench that they benchmarked a dell inspiron 580 with an Intel Core i7 870 processor. If this is possible, I would love to buy one right away, but is that possible. Everywhere I have looked, the 580 is only compatible up to the i5-760, but that is all old information. Would anybody know for sure?

This was the GeekBench info:

dell don't make them anymore, so it would have to be a used one. So it whatever people are selling.

I read that the H57 motherboard supports the i7 socket 1156 chips, however Dell never offered a BIOS upgrade with support for the i7. That forum was dated back in mid-2012, I didn't know if there was a more recent upgrade with support for the i7 or no.

The latest bios is A07 updated 2010, so no.
