Hi:

 

Below is the link to the dc7800 quickspecs.

 

The supported processors can be found on page 9.

You're very welcome.

 

That is good news.  Sometimes a processor not listed works, but you can't tell that until you try one.

 

I have a dc7900 SFF, and it is running just fine with a Q9500 in it, and that isn't listed in the table of supported processors (see pp 9-10).

I bought it used that way.  I would have never installed a processor not on the list. 

 

Too risky unless you know for sure in advance it will work.
