@Michael203 , welcome to the Community.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will help you know what to consider when upgrading the video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981

 

My questions are:

1) Can I put an RTX 3080 graphic card inside? The PCIe slot on the motherboard is v. 3.0.  This is what the RTX 3080 requires.  However, read the article that I provided to make certain that the card you choose will fit into the space with good airflow.  Otherwise, you will have another heating problem.  These cards develop a lot of heat.  Also, you will most likely have to upgrade your PSU.  Here are the specifications of the card from nVidia: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/30-series/rtx-3080/?ncid=afm-chs-44270&ranMID=44...
 
2) Which CPU cooler is compatible with the motherboard and easy to find for a purchase ? Since HP has their motherboards made to their specifications, your best option would be to contact one of the cooler manufacturer's Tech Support to see what they have that will work.
 
3) its is possible to upgrade CPU from intel i7 7700k to intel i9 gen with this motherboard ? No!  The i7-7700K is the fastest processor that will work in your motherboard.  The i9 series processors require a 300 series motherboard.
