HP Pavilion All-in-One - 27-a210t Processor Upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion All-in-One - 27-a210t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I want to upgrade my HP Pavilion All-in-One - 27-a210t processor to a I7 Processor. Can someone recommend the best I7 processor to upgrade to?

 

Can I use any I7 processor that is LGA 1151 socket?

 

Different Gen versus Gen 7 of the I7 processor?

 

Also after I upgrade the processor will I be able to upgrade memory past 16 GB's? I have 16 installed now but I would like to go to 32 GB's.

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

 

Wayne

You're very welcome, Wayne.

 

Yes, it looks like you can install 2 x 16 GB of DDR4 memory.

 

I think this memory would work for you...

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the product specs for your PC.

 

HP Pavilion All-in-One - 27-a210t PC Product Specifications | HP® Customer Support

 

The processor upgrade info can be found on the above link.

 

There is only one i7 processor you can upgrade to...the Intel Core i7-7700T 

 

The crucial memory report for your PC indicates the max is 2 x 8 GB.

 

Memory RAM & SSD Upgrades | hp - compaq | pavilion 27 series | Pavilion 27-a210t All-in-One | Crucia...

 

Installing the i7 processor would not change the max amount of memory you can install.

 

You may want to check to see if your PC already supports 2 x 16 GB of memory by running the command shown in the link below...

 

How to Find the Maximum RAM Capacity of Your Computer (maketecheasier.com)

 

If it can, you should see a value of around 33554432.  Here is a screen print of my report on a PC with 4 memory slots...

Sweet.. Thanks for the reply... 

 

I did the command and I see the same value as you have on yours.

So it looks like I can go to 32 GB of memory... That's great...

OK on the processor. Just wanted to make sure if I had different options that I can take.

 

Thanks Again,

 

Wayne
