HP dc7900 sff (energy star): upgrade to q6600 or q9650

Hi I want to upgrade to q9650 or q6600 and I have hp compaq dc7900 sff (energy star)

and I want to know if the upgrade works and I want to know if I can change the power supply

Thank you and power supply 400w



Here is the link to the quickspecs for the dc7900.

Can be found on page 9, taken processors supported.


The Q6600 will not work, but will the Q9650.

You cannot change the power supply.  It is the property of HP and they do not have a better for the SFF.

The Q9650 will draw 30 more watts than a core 2 such as the E8400 processor, so I would not expect on adding a video card, etc., unless you install a vido cards as a GT 610 or HD 6450 low powered.

  • Upgrading power supply on DC7900 SFF

    Hi, I want to know what options are available to upgrade the power supply on my DC7900 SFF to support a graph card Radeon R6570.  Block of current output 250W PSU but the graphics card needs minimum 400W.  Did someone awatre of a secondary market PSU with > 500W that can fit into the SFF case?  Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    You are the very welcome.

    Yes, this diet is the P/S standard for the dc7900 CMT.

    It will be, in any way, shape, fit into the dc7900 SFF.

    As I posted above, I do not know of any alternative feeds that will work in the SFF.

    Try the card as it is and see what happens.  What a guy says it works fine.

    I guess it depends on how much of a load you put on it and the other factors.

    Use this power supply calculator to help you determine if it is possible to use the 6570 in your machine.



  • HP Pavilion notebook-17-f170nb (ENERGY STAR) (K1S08EA) SSD upgrade

    HP Pavilion notebook-17-f170nb (ENERGY STAR) (K1S08EA)

    Is it possible to add an additional SSD (2.5 inches, msata, m2) to this computer or is this not possible?

    I have to remove anything or not?

    I can't find it anywhere. At present, this type had a 1 to HARD 5400 RPM and 8 GB Flash disk - cache.

    Thanks in advance,


    Here is the Service Manual:


    17-fxxx Pavilion series is the budget model type and has no place for a second hard drive or player mSATA.

    The only thing you could do to maximize the speed is to install an SSD of regular full size as single storage drive in the 2.5-inch drive Bay.

    However, it is a major undertaking and requires almost complete disassembly. See Page 94 and below:


    Not exactly the same model but close and it shows step by step video of everything you need to do to reach the hard drive Bay. Wish it were easier for you.

  • Update CPU dc7900 sff


    I have a DC7900 SFF with Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.80 GHz socket LGA775. I want to upgrade my CPU with best compotible CPU. On processors Intel web site I saw CPU Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550S Processor with the same power (65W) necessary to last, but it is no longer sold.

    What is the solution?

    The Q9550S is not compatible with the motherboard of your computer desktop.

    The processors in the image below are compatible with the dc7900 SFF PC. You can always find the processors on the second hand market. Make a Google\Bing search to locate a source. I'd go with the processor Q9650. Search on the HP part number.

    As seen in the search I did on the part number for the Q9650, they are available. They are cheaper on the market, refurbished and second hand.

    If you definetely can't get HP recovery media, here are a few suggestions.

    1. if you live in the United States, try the 3rd dealer part on the following link.


    2 as long as the previous installation of Windows 10 had activated Ok after upgrade from 8.1, you can simply perform a new installation of windows 10 as stated in the guide on the following link.  Note: On the activation screen, select "I don't have a product key" - Windows will activate automatically once installation is complete.

    It has not reported any problem at all.

    He also posted the link to the actual card, bought it in this thread.

    2. What type of graphics card can I buy?

    Looks like the processor the faster, you can install processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 (page 10).

    The options show up to a 500 GB HARD drive. Nothing more than that, you're on your own (page 16).

    Graphics cards options found on page 20. Note the power supply for the dc7900 SFF is just 240W.
