sure you can,.....all you have to do is replace all the parts and traces on a intel motherboard with the AMD threadripper parts

then you need to replace the HP  Z8 case with one that fits the threadrippers motherboard I/O port locations and presto a it's done...

 

however in the real world the above is not going to happen,....you want a threadripper system? then you are going to have to buy such a system as the AMD/Intel platforms are not interchangeable so the answer to your question is "NO"
