Solved!

Possible to replace Intel I5-9400F with I9-9000KF?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 790-0819no
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello! I want to upgrade my CPU from an intel I5-9400F to an Intel 9-9000KF. I have found that the H370 chipset supports this with a BIOS update. Is this accurate? I am also curious if the power supply is strong enough to support such an upgrade. I tried to calculate the total amount of power usage and found that it should work, but I can not be sure and I am hesitant to spend the money before I am certain.

Also; is the stock intel cooler the same for both Intel processors since they go on the same socket or would I need to buy a boxed CPU? 


The reason for the upgrade is that I am often running calculations that is making the CPU run at maximum capacity for a good while (30min or more), ending with the software crashing. One example is if I place a (Heavy) formula in an excel sheet with more than 50K rows (I realize I can use VB, but I use this as an example)

 

Some relevant information 

Max TDP for Intel I5-9400F is 65[W]

Max TDP for Intel I9-9900KF is 95[W] 

Both use socket 1151 LGA 

My Motherboard is a Berks 884C (HP) Coffee Lake, H370

I think (but I am not sure) that my power supply is 400W 80 Plus Gold (or somthing like that )

 

Thank you in advance for the help!

Check yourself, there is an update which indicates support for the processor, but for the i7 only

F.22 Rev.A

Fix and enhancements:

-Added the support for Intel CFL i7-9700 processor

so for the moment, no solution here

Thank you for the reply!
I have looked at the computer and motherboard specifications without becoming any wiser since the maximum TDP of the I9 is 95W.
The Intel I9-9900KF specifications say that the CPU will work with H370 chipset, but the BIOS would need to be updated.
