Anyone know if the BIOS on these is limited to certain CPUs? Tempted to get this, gut the CPU and GPU for a new build, and then swap out for one of the i3 or i5 (8th gen obviously) on sale. I remember some other generations wouldn't POST because of some BIOS limitations only recognizing a few of the CPU from that generation.
Cheers

PSU calc: Load Wattage:386 W
Recommended UPS rating:850 VA
Recommended PSU Wattage:436 W

the site (outervision) recommends a 650W unit

I ran it through with 3 120mm fans and a 27'' monitor.
So this power supply will work, but if you add anything you're replacing it.

No, they are not limited to any specific CPU. Dell uses the same BIOS for i3-8100, i5-8400, i7-8600K, i7-8700 and i7-8700K. The chipset is Z370 Express and supports overclocking.

Obviously you didn't get the joke. There shouldn't even need to be a PSU discussion on Prebuilts but there always are.

Awesome. I think I bought one a few years back with an i7-4790K and tried putting in one of the i3 of the same chipset and it refused to boot.

Should I jump on this or wait a few months to build my computer? I'm a bit impatient.

I post this every time this deal comes up. Here it is again:

Folks, you do not want this computer. I bought pretty much the same config a few months ago, hoping it would perform as admirably as my XPS 8700 from a deal four or five years ago.

Nope.

The 8930 chassis is about 70% the size of the 8700 line, which puts the power supply on a swing out arm beside the motherboard, laterally over the processor heat sink and fan. When closed there's about half an inch of clearance in there, with the only source of airflow to the processor fan being a tiny vent on the back of the case.

At mostly-full load when gaming, both the CPU and GPU would hit 85°C very quickly and creep up to around 90°C after awhile. You can say that this is 'acceptable' but a properly vented case can keep CPU and GPU dozens of degrees lower.

The GPU is a generic GTX 1080, which means if there's any issues there will probably never be new firmware/VBIOS released.

There's a large exhaust fan on top of the case that wheezes (spin up and back down constantly) with even slight variations in load. At full load this fan is very loud -- don't expect a quiet XPS like previous models.

The 8700k version of the heat sink is offset and sits above one of the motherboard's PSU connectors. You cannot replace the power supply without removing the processor heat sink. See this image [lithium.com].

Do yourself a favor and skip this deal.

Not a bad deal if you don't care about selecting *your* components. I just built one from scratch for around $1900. It included a water cooled 1080ti, Samsung m.2, platinum PSU, high speed DDR4, high end mobo (gigabyte gamer 7), water cooled 8700k. My opinion is that if u are going to spend $1500+ you might as well get exactly what you want instead of a box full of stuff someone selected for you.

That's great insight, thanks! Thoughts on replacing the CPU and GPU and flipping it? Wanting the i7-8700k in my new build and wouldn't mind taking the GPU as well. Debating if it will be worth it in the long run and if I can actually save $$. Currently have the EVGA 980 Ti and use it primarily for Adobe CC apps (photos mainly).

Super nice PC and Dell puts a $20 PSU in it!

I don't personally think it'd be worth the trouble. The i7-8700k has been as low as about $330. I also can't imagine GPU prices staying this high for much longer (could be wrong). Honestly I'd tell you to build a computer and limp along with your 980Ti until prices come down again.

Won't you lose any warranty on the CPU/GPU if you do that? Don't these systems still have a everything-inside-inherits-base-system-warranty policy?
