Update CPU in 82F2 motherboard

HP Recommended
Pavilion Desktop - 570-p013wb
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My computer currently has the Intel Core i3-7100 (Kabylake) 3.9 GHz Dual Core and I would like to confirm the compatible CPU options and maximum RAM after updating 82F2 Bios.  All I'm finding are other Kabylake processors, and I'm hoping a BIOS update will bring a newer CPU option.  Also, it looks like the maximum RAM originally is 16GB (8GBx2) and I'm wondering if a BIOS update would increase that. Can someone help me confirm an updated BIOS might increase compatibility options?

@jonesturtle , welcome to the Community.

 

Here is the Product Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-570-p000-desktop-pc-series/13823514/model/17210395/...

 

If you look at the section titled "Processor/Processor upgrade information" there is a list of compatible processors.  These have been fully tested to assure they are compatible with the motherboard.  It would be extremely rare if HP would upgrade the BIOS/UEFI to allow for upgrades to later processors.  They have their motherboards made to their specifications and use them in many different models with many different configurations.  The way they create different price-points is by limiting the motherboards to work with a certain amount of processor versions and other components.

 

If you look at the section titled "Memory/Memory upgrade information" it states that the maximum memory is 16 GB.

@Old_geekster thanks for the help

 

If that is the case that only 7th gen CPUs will work, is the i7 - 7700k equal to the i7 - 7700? I see the k is unlocked which doesn't seem like it is much different, but it is not specifically listed on the compatibility chart.

Yes, the 7700K is equal to the 7700.  However, the BIOS/UEFI has to be setup to allow for the "K" processors to be overclocked.  Your BIOS/UEFI is not.  So, you can't use the 7700K in your motherboard or it would be listed in the specifications.
