Can anyone tell me what core i7 motherboard will be able to fit the studio xps 9100. I want to change the motherboard so that it will allow overclocking as dell motherboard doesnt allow that.Someone please reply me asap
Before you get a new mobo, make sure the front panel connectors of the Dell case are compatible with the pins provided by your new mobo. You can do that by comparing your mobo, your Dell manual's descriptions, and the manual for the mobo you are thinking of buying.
Dell PCs typical have, eg, a series of 4 lights that indicate error conditions or a successful post. Standard mobos will not support those connections. Further, the other front panel connectors may differ from industry standards, may require rewiring, or may not work at all.
