T7810 Upgrade Time

This is my current setup:

Precision T7810
1 x Xeon E5-2670 v3 2.30 Ghz
16 GB PC2133  (4 x 4 GB)
Sk Hynik SH920 2.5 7MM 256 SSD
ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB 1 TB
XFX Radeon RX590P8DLD6 FATBOY 8GB OC + 1565M
1X 10/100/1000 Network Port <- Embedded
825 W Dell Power Supply
No DVD-RW Drive
Win 10 Pro 64 Bit
Razer Death Stalker Keyboard
Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB Mouse
Microsoft Xbox One Controller
3 x Dell E2414H Monitors 60hz overclocked to 75hz with Custom Resolution Utility


I would like to upgrade my rig with a better cpu or any other components any suggestions ?

I ordered a nvme to pci-e adapter and a samsung evo plus 970 256 gb so that should be installed in a few days when it arrives. The RX 590 I just purchased a week ago so I'm fine with my current graphics card.

I tried ordering a liquid cooler for the cpu but on amazon it says that it is out of stock and there is no restocking date can anyone sell me or link me to a liquid cooler for my cpu?

  • Hello. I also have bought a Dell Precision T7810 Dual Xeon E5-2609v3 1.9Ghz, 32GB RAM DDR4 1600Mhz, 240GB SSD, 2TB Seagate Barracuda, VGA RD580 8GB Nitro + SE. Everything works great.
    I would suggest buying another processor with the same processor.
     Dell T7810 is suitable for all processors E5-2600 v3 and v4 series.
    It depends on what work you plan to do. Will it be video or photo editing, or are you planning to use it more often for games?
    If you plan on working with video or photo editing, look for a processor with more cores. The system supports processors up to 22 cores, it just depends on how much money you plan to spend on upgrading the system. It is recommended that you install the latest BIOS, currently current version A33, before installing a more powerful processor.
    • Vaidas Speičys Thanks for your reply. I have the Intel Xeon E5-2670v3 this processor is not on the list https://www.greenpcgamers.com/technology/make-my-precision-t7810-in-to-a-gaming-computer/

      Should I replace it with one on the list ?

      If not I can get the same one I have for about $60 on eBay right now . 

    • Pablo Martínez I have the habit of always updating to the latest bios and drivers on all my PC's so I am on a33 currently thanks for the suggestion tho it's important to be up to date.

  • Has the GreenPC team tested the 1300w PSU in a 7810? I saw the youtube video where you guys have tested in in a handful of other T series precision workstations. I have an R9 290x in mine and in some games it will shut down the system, presumably from too mych power draw. I have seen mixed reviews on dropping the 1300w PSU in these systems, and GPCGamers seems to be the authoritative source for these kind of rig builds.

  • Most I've come across, use an 825W PSU.
