  1. CPU compatability for Win11


    I have a Dell XPS laptop with an Intel i7-7700HQ CPU. Why would this processor be incompatible with Win11?The i7-7700HQ is a 4-core hyperthreading CPU running at 2.6GHz/core. The laptop is otherwise fully compatible. ????

    Processor nogo Win11 upgrade - Upgrade processor?

    Windows 10 Pro 21H1

    I ran the MS Win11 hardware suitability tool. And my trusty, 3 year old Lenovo P50 failed--reason: processor.

    The machine's processor is: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.59 GHz

    Just curious... is it reasonable that a newer processor might be plug compatible with the motherboard and with Win11?

    CPU compatability for Win11

    Is this compatible?

    I think I have narrowed down my mobo selection to the ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus but, the reviews suggest checking the Qualified Vendors List for memory on the ASUS site as this board can be particular. The information is not currently available. It was suggested in one review that the compatiblity of memory to this board on their list was not accurate. Many other reviews suggest no problems with memory compatibility.

    Can anyone tell me if the Corsair XMS2 2gb (2x1gb)- DDR2/800 Twin2X2408-6400 would work troule free on this ASUS board?

    Another question....I am planning to use an Intel Core 2DUO E6400 Conroe 2.13ghz on this board. What the heck do I use for a heatsink? There are so many to choose from and I know nothing about them....

    Thanks, Chirp
