ENVY 32-A0055
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an ENVY 32-A0055 with the i7 processor and was wondering if it could be upgraded to an i9. There are i9s that will fit the socket on the ENVY 32-A0055's motherboard, but I don't know if that's the only issue. I Googled the specs on the unit's motherboard to try to find out, but got a dead link on HP's website. Any info appreciated!

For those interested, it is possible to upgrade the i7 Envy 32 to an i9. I used this processor and it's running well.
