Found 24th Mar
Been a month since I posted this & it went OOS. Now back in stock at the new low price of £144 with code NEWCUSTOMER. ***128GB SSD*** This is Grade B (badly scratched case) but there are plenty in stock & I imagine you will either get lucky and get a Grade A minus, or get unlucky and it really has got a few scratches. Nae problemo, you still get 12 months' warranty and can paint it over with Hammerite (or something)

Most Dell USFF dont have an expansion slot, so if you wanted decent gfx, you would have to buy one of those expensive external jobs.
(Dell usually do a SFF version, which DOES have a single slot).

I dont have experience of this particular model, but I have bought 2nd hand Dell USFF boxes in the past; they are very powerful for their size, but there is very little you can do to upgrade them when you need a little bit more.

Even upgrading the cpu is fraught with danger; yes you can do it, but inevitably that means more heat; and Dell BIOS is so locked down that you cannot easily replace the cooling fans with anything better.

As I found out to my cost.

My last USFF I replaced the cpu with the fastest model Dell claimed it would support; but under even moderate load the cooling fan noise was banshee loud; so I bought a set of Noctua fans to replace the Dell fans. The Noctua were quieter and have much better airflow at about 30-50% of the speed of the Dell POS fitted; it was the last spec that caused the issue.

The Noctua fan rpm was outside of the narrow rpm limits imposed by the BIOS, but instead of merely warning me the fans were too slow; the BIOS turned them off (BUT GAVE NO WARNING!!!).

Cooking the cpu and damaging the motherboard beyond repair.

The BIOS also imposed stupidly low limits on VRAM, although some kind soul had hacked it and allowed 128MB (the BIOS limit was 8MB!!)

If you can get one of these with the all in one screen/carry case, they are excellent first PCs for children; the combined weight of the PC, screen and the very stable stand means they are very difficult to knock over; the stand also offers a wide range of height and tilt angle adjustments.
They cant play any modern games, but are perfectly suitable for basic games aimed at Pre-School and Primary School aged children.

Will this be good for surfing the internet and general admin etc.... thanks



One of the older core duo will suffice for that sort of stuff and can be had on eBay for £30/40

Up to 4 DIMM slots (2 for USFF); Non-ECC dual-channel 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM, up to 16GB
physik.fu-berlin.de/ser…pdf

So you can stick 16GB RAM in (2x 8GB) and it might be OK. The problem with the USFF version is it doesn't have any expansion slots & comes with integrated graphics, so might not be best for photo/ video editing at a high level

I'm waiting for them to get their 9020s back in stock with the i7 4790, will make a nice little server for Emby and Blueiris and a bit of SQL Express and IIS

Yes will be fine, my main PC is using this CPU, memory and SSD drive and it's perfect for most tasks including video editing (4K is a bit of a struggle)

Can you Hackintosh this????

Also do you need, definitely, a graphic card for Hackintosh on this Machine.
Folks would this be a decent rig for a cheapo Plex server (HDD replacing SSD, or tethered via usb3)?

I’m not really up on the subject but from what I do know is most core 2 duo will work just have to be careful on sound boards etc. And as far as I’m aware you’ll need a graphics card but a cheap one will suffice

To be fair these are not really designed for any upgrades, they are designed to have the same hardware as there bigger SFF/Mini//Full tower brothers so they can take a standard corporate build but have a tiny footprint so they can be hidden away.
Dells Opltiplex range are designed for system stability, long hardware driver compatibility and to work in a office environment, noisy fans are a distraction in an office so they are built to be near silent.

They are really pretty good if they suit your needs, I use a Dell 7040 USFF as my main PC as its so small on the desk, but as you say if you plan to do any upgrades then USFF's are NOT the way to go the only think you can easily upgrade is the Memory or do a hard drive swap, but anything beyond that is is possible but a pain to do.

You can't, look at the product images. There's absolutely no room for a graphics card, for a start.

Just finsihed 5 years supporting around 300+ of these machines (or variants within the same dell range) and they're very reliable.

Passmark is over 6000 so its plenty powerful enough for a few transcoded streams. Power usage is probably a bit high for a 24/7 usage though.

Is that you Mr Vibox?
There's lots of YouTube vids on these optiplex boxes.
From what l gather the USSF only have 2 sata ports, the SFF have 3 so you can tuck another HDD in there if required.
I've ordered an SFF via ebay with a basic 1gb gpu upgrade, but it was £160.

Lol, I did buy one myself but not that exact one. Just giving others an option who are on a post to buy a pc. You probably couldn't buy the parts and build it yourself for any less. Not amazing by any standards, but all included for less than £400 is decent. Dropped further in price today.

You'd probably want to get an extra 8gb RAM and an SSD in there. Probably need a better CPU as well to be honest.

Heat for the deal, I'd almost want to price up a similar spec'd build...
Missed it again! OOS
I have got very similar with MSI GTX 1050Ti 4GT LP 4GB. All with only 250w psu. Works great.
