    A for effort but doesn't really count. Like spapakons said, a Core2 Quad isn't really old and is a very capable CPU even today.

    Old would be something that's 32bit only or first gen 64bit AMD.

    I have Win10 on a Dell Optiplex 755, works quite nice. Also have Win10 Insider Preview on a Dell Inspiron 530S.

    This is not exactly old, yet. It is a socket 775 quad core Intel Processor. Still very fast and usable. So I'm afraid is not a surprise to run Windows 10 in that and doesn't qualify as an "old" hardware (yet). In fact in the Computer Store I work at, we sell Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad PCs as REF (Refurbished) at much reasonable price as buying current technology (socket 1150 or 1151). Any PC with an Intel socket 775 dual core CPU or AMD equivalent supports Windows 8 and 10 without any problem. So it is not worthwhile mentioning at this thread. Sorry for the inconvenience.
    I understand.
    This system is a backup for my current rig, In case something were to happen to it.
    I must state, that this machine has demonstrated great reliability over the years and has proven this toughness/resilience.
    Also the stock heat sink which came with this unit, was absolute overkill for it's time.
    Along with it's cpu cooling fan and shroud.

    I have that same Dell chassis with an older CPU. Really reliable and great as a testing machine.

    Since doing research, I found a pentium 4 socket 478 cpu that has the NX bit

    Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 511 (1M Cache, 2.80A GHz, 533 MHz FSB)

    Here's the Intel CPU information from Intel's website:
