HP Recommended
HP Z600
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I've bought a used z600 last month, and i would like to upgrade the CPU.

 

Currently i'm having Dual X5560 processor.

 

Which is the top processor i can buy? my main use will be After Effect and Premiere

 

Can i add 130W processor? i'm  having a 250W graphics card aswell

 

Also this workstation came with 1600 ECC ram and i was trying to add 1333 ecc ram and it start making beep noise, any ide what will be?

 

Please let me know the suggestions

hp plainly states what type of ram to use in the quickspecs or the service manual for the z600

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01709709

 

it's unbuffered ECC ram 13333MHz (note the unbuffered part!)

 

this question has been asked/answered numerous times on this forum

 

please use the "SEARCH" box and the keyword(s) z600 ram

 

 

cpu selection depends on which revision motherboard you have,

rev 1 boards 55xx series, rev 2 board 55xx and 56xx series

 

here is one such thread, covering board revs and cpu 's that can be found using the forum search function:
