Dimension XPS T600 Help

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

Hello,

I picked up a barebones Dell Dimension XPS T600 system last month. It had
the powersupply, processor, and memory stripped out of it. While I have
memory here, I am wondering what model / make powersupply was used for
these, or if any generic Powersupply would work. Also what is the highest
rated CPU this motherboard would handle? I wouldn't mind putting in a 1ghz
slot P3 if possible.

    Start here, great site with lots of good information and easy to read:
    http://www.roberthancock.com/dell/

    Get a Dell power supply - that model has a proprietary connect to the system
    board. Look for a supply out of an Dimension XPS R, T, B, or Dimension 4100
    model (used), or call Dell Spare Parts Phone 800-999-3355 Ext 69937.

    The system can use most any PIII Slot1 CPU with a *100mhz* FSB (NOT a 133mhz
    FSB). It can also use various slocket/adapters: www.powerleap.com

    http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dkub/

    It uses PC100 SDRAM with a max capacity of 768mb (3x256mb).

    As a side note, don't confuse this machine with the newer and current XPS,
    or XPS GenX machines. Not even close to the same animal.

    To add to what Stew said - If you are going to spend more than a few hundred
    dollars to get it up and running, you are probably going to spend more than
    it's worth. If you are doing it just for the learning experience - Great!

    I have an XPS-600r here that I upgraded the processor to 1GHz many years
    ago. It works good, but I wouldn't even consider doing that upgrade now.

    Thanks for the great info. Mainly I just need the power supply and
    processor for this. I can get a processor (600mhz) for around $15. What
    I'd like to do is take out the old 8gb hdd, add in an 80gb from my shop here
    and just really recondition it and sell it.

    That would make a great machine for surfing the net, office programs, and
    things like that. I still fire up my old T series once in a while.

    Thats exactly why I am fixing it up. :) In fact I have several people
    asking me for machines, I'm picking up these Dells that offices are ready to
    throw to the trash, and I'm fixing what needs to be fixed, normally spending
    less than $75 per machine, and selling them to those who need low cost
    machines for their homes or offices. Letting them know that these aren't
    directly from Dell, not under Dell warranty, but still work great. And they
    do work great.

    I've got an XPS T500 on location here in town (512mb RAM, 64mb video card,
    and 20gb hard drive with Windows XP Home) that the person likes so much they
    are probably going to buy it. (I'd originally loaned it to them when their
    local vendor-built 800mhz Celeron bought the farm).

    For simple basic stuff, they are still one tough bullet-proof machine.

    My son also uses an XPS Br 1000 (1GHz/512mb RDRAM) that is chugging along,
    although it's noisy as all hell....(fans).
