Hp p6705f cpu upgrade

HP Recommended
Hp p6705f
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

First time poster here so I'll be brief. I have a dinosaur of a PC that im looking to upgrade the processor on. It's an hp p6705f desktop. I've upgraded ram. Added a gpu and ssd. Processor it came with is the pentium e5700. The motherboard is the pegatron IPIEL-LA3. I've read it's compatible with both yorkfield and wolfdale procs. I've bought 5 already. E8300, E8400, E8600, Q9650 and Qx9650. Q9650 fully booted but gave a different blue screen error every time. The others froze during boot for the most part. Qx9650 caused beeps and wouldn't boot. Bios is v6.09 the newest available. What am I doing wrong? I get you need drivers for the procs but if you can't boot how will windows update install them? Is the fact that this PC was never meant for windows 10 the issue? I've fully wiped my ssd and about to attempt a fresh install of windows 10. Anyone have any helpful information because either google hates me or no one has ever tried upgrading the cpu on this board. I literally have found nothing helpful. Any advice would be appreciated. I have to get at least one of these procs to boot to ease my ocd lol. Thanks in advance!

@DubEeEeEeE , welcome to the Community.

 

Here are the Product Specifications for the computer.  If you look at the section titled "Processor/Processor upgrade information" it shows the compatible processors.   The processor that you buy has to be TDP: 95W.  The TDP for the QX9650 is 130W.  The E8300 is TDP: 65W.  I didn't check all of the models that you listed, but I believe this is the problem.
