Solved!

Possible to remove CPU and SSD and use them in new setup/MB?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming - TG01-0036no
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I know that i would love to upgrade my PC in the near future. But this PC has a really good CPU in Ryzen 3700x and 1tb ssd.. I wonder if it would be possible for me to take out these and set it in an new MB with new ram and new GPU? Probably Nvidia 4000-series when it arrives.. I happen to have a PSU and it would be quite cheap for me to upgrade if i could take out the ssd and CPU to use them!

 

Thank you!

Hello
so provided you find a compatible motherboard!
the processor must be supported by the motherboard.
at the time of my answer, I did not check, but if you have an m2 type SSD, it will also have to be supported by the motherboard
If it was just a sata SSD drive, as long as there are sata ports, no problem.
But for M2 there are different standards, you will have to check this
You probably will not be able to use the windows version installed on it, you will have to proceed with a new installation with a new license
try like this, you will see, but in general it cannot work anymore, or at least windows would not be activated anymore

A bios update is not without risk!
Be aware that if you are offered to do so, it will be at your own risk, the computer may become unusable, think about it
