CPU upgrade on HP EliteDesk 705 G4 SFF

HP Recommended
EliteDesk 705 G4 SFF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all,

 

I am willing to upgrade the current CPU (AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 2400G) to AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 2700. Reading on the net I found that there might be incompatibility issues with the BIOS family version (Q15, Q16, Q19) saying that it only can be used on Q19 versions. My desktop has the Q16 version, so I want to ask (a) if this is actually true and (b) can the Q16 somehow be changed to Q19?

 

Thank you for your time,

Dimitris P.

Yes, it's up to you to see if you take the risk
but in general, it seems to me that the reseller, does not make too much history, if not compatible it can be refunded
Ask advice before purchase can be

so no certainty

Unfortunately, this is not certain even on HP manuals. On this one, only 2400G and 2200G are being referenced, while on this one, you can see all the options (even 2700x). You understand, that buying a CPU that might not be compatible can be considered as waste of money and not an invest.

 

Thank you,

Dimitris
