Upgrading CPU in HP 23 G116

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 23 G-116 All in one
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi - I am in the process of upgrading the CPU in my computer from a Pentium G3220T to a Core i5-4690T. I know the processor is compatible, but my question is do I need to upgrade the heatsink at all, and if not will overheating be an issue? I am also upgrading to 16 GB (2x8) of RAM and replacing the HDD with a Samsung SSD. Thanks!

You will need to use the same fan/heatsink that is already installed.  Be sure that you use guaranteed compatible memory  modules for your PC.

Thanks - in your estimation do you think the new processor will cause overheating issues? The cpu is listed as an acceptable upgrade on the HP website but it is 45w as opposed to the 35w processor that I am swapping out.

I  took a look at the HP Partsurfer and see that the installed thermal module is likely to be a 45W Thermal module. There was no other thermal module available for the PC. There shouldn't be any issues with overheating  when swapping in the new processor.
