PR OCESSOR
NOTE: Global Standard Products (GSP) are a subset of Dell’s relationship products that are managed for availability and synchronized transitions on a worldwide basis. They ensure the same platform is available for purchase globally. This allows customers to
reduce the number of configurations managed on a worldwide basis, thereby reducing their costs. They also enable companies to
implement global IT standards by locking in specific product configurations worldwide. The following GSP processors identified below
will be made available to Dell customers.
NOTE: Processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor availability subject to change and may vary by region/

MEMORY
Memory modules should be installed in pairs of matched memory size, speed, and technology. If the memory
modules are not installed in matched pairs, a slight reduction in performance may occur.
NOTE: This system supports both 1066MHz and 1333MHz DDR3 memory, how ever the memory w ill operate at
1066MHz speed due to chipset specifications .

ENCLOSURE VENTILATION
If your enclosure has doors, they need to be of a type that allows at least 30% airflow through
the enclosure (front and back).
ENCLOSURE MINIMUM CLEARANCE
Leave a 10.2 cm (4 in.) minimum clearance on all vented sides of the computer to permit the
airflow required for proper ventilation.
RECOMMENDED ENCLOSURE
Do not install your computer in an enclosure that does not allow airflow. This restricts the
airflow and impacts your computer’s performance, possibly causing it to overheat.
OPEN DESK MINIMUM CLEARANCE
If your computer is installed in a corner, on a desk, or under a desk, leave at least 5.1 cm (2 in.)
clearance from the back of the computer to the wall to permit the airflow required for proper
ventilation.
