Solved!

I want to upgrade my CPU from i5 to i7

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP 880-100na Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have this motherboard: HP Desktop PCs - motherboard specifications, Tampa2 | HP® Customer Support

 

I have this CPU:    Intel Core i5-8400

 

I want to upgrade it to the i7. The HP automated support suggests this:

 

Intel Core i7-8700K (Coffeelake) 3.7 GHz, 6 Cores 95 W

                                         OR
Intel Core i7-8700 (Coffeelake) 3.7 GHz, 6 Cores 65 W

 

I cannot locate the bottom one in the list that runs at 3.7Ghz .I can find one that runs at 3.2Ghz. Will  that be OK to use?

 

Or should I go for the top one in the list which is 95W (30W more than my current CPU)?

 

If so, how do I know if my PSU will handle it? 

 

Intel Core i7-8700 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor vs. Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor - PCPar...

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello

if I am not mistaken you have a 500w power supply
your computer is this one:

 

 

 

i find this model, with 500w power supply (same motherboard) and an I7

OMEN by HP 880-100nq Desktop PC Product Specifications

Intel Core i7-8700K

500 W internal power supply

that should be fine!

[edit]

the model you found is probably correct
the file is not precise here, we can find this information (hp site):
Intel Core i7-8700

CPU speed: 3.2 GHz (maximum speed with Turbo Boost: 4.6 GHz)
Number of CPU cores: 6
CPU cache memory: 12 MB
TDP: 65W
Connector: LGA 1151
