I just bought it, and I forgot to change my profile, but before I had a 3010

@eddroid Can I point you to this - it is a description of the file system in use with this and other standard builds.

Here's my Optiplex 7010 Deal of the day 3-7-19

Dell 7010 Desktop for $69.99 shipped

These are much bigger than the SFF models. A less cramped interior. You get 3 PCIe slots and one PCI slot on the motherboard just like in the Mini-Tower version. More airflow for a dedicated graphics card. You get an i5-3570 which alone is worth 50 dollars. Shipping it costs at least 20 dollars. So overall a very good deal. Install your own SSD in it and a matching 4GB stick of ram and you've got a nice CustoMac. These are selling really fast today so don't hesitate if you'd like one. Seller has a great reputation so no worries there. Seller does not ship overseas, sorry. USA only. Don't forget you'll need a graphics card as the i5-3570 only has HD2500. A GT 710 will work or a Quadro K600 is another Kepler card that should work. You can also run the MSI RX560 LP card in this system for gaming purposes or to edit video.

391788 391789

6 of these have sold already today at this price.

Sales tax may apply when shipping to: IA, MD(6.0%), MN, WA

Specifically with the hardware in the mini-tower version, is it a standard CPU cooler? I.e. can I swap the heatsink and fan out to something much quieter? I have found on my HP 8300 it is not standard, so I'm stuck with the original heatsink and fan. I understand I would need one of the ebay adaptors for 5pin - whatever fan I end up using.
Here's a picture of what I did when moving a 9010 mobo into a Thermaltake case. You can see the Noctua low noise adapter to make the fan spin slower at a steady rate. Much quieter this way than the stock Dell fan.

You don't have to do anything. Wait until the general public release a little while later.

I keep geting "Your computer has detected a potential problem" on every boot after 10/15 min use. Anyone has them or found how to disable them ? I always click not sending to apple, but would be glad to stop them from appearing in the first place
