New cpu?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently bought a new intel i5 3570 off ebay. I decided to try and install it on my dell optiplex 790 motherboard. When i turned it on it would run for 2 seconds then shut off an turn on again (it did that 3 times) I waited for a bit and i got no signal from my gpu. I tried re installing my gpu, and again no signal. After i decided to re install my i5 2400. After that my computer booted up perfectly and everything works fine now. I am wondering if it is just the motherboard or a bad cpu, Any help would be much appreciated.

just a guess but maybe its the compatibility to the motherboard or the cpu itself is broken.

Just because it has the same socket does not mean it will work.  The board has to support 3rd gen core series CPUs in BIOS/firmware or it wont work.

Alright well i brought a Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 motherboard. Would the i5 3570 work in it?

You should probably check the manufacturers website before buying parts.  That would give you your answer.

 

Z68 boards, in general, will likely not support that CPU out of the box.  Most will need at least a BIOS update, which would require using your 2400 to even boot the board, then installing the latest BIOS from the website if there is a version that supports 3rd gen CPUs.

 

70 series chipsets were the ones released with the 3rd gen CPUs.
