Upgrading my CPU (OMEN HP 880-135nd)

HP Recommended
OMEN HP 880-135nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

I want to upgrade my CPU from the i5-8400 that this PC came with, with an i7-7900k.  I have the 880-135nd model and I wanted to ask if my Motherboard is compatible with the i7-9700k before I make my purchase. 

 

If I can upgrade to the i7-9700k then I know I will have to buy a better CPU cooler. I have been looking around but cannot decide which one is the best for my build. I'm mostly thinking about buying the dark rock 4 pro, NH-D15 or NH-D15s to be able to use the i7-7900k to it's fullest potential. The problem is that I'm not sure if these CPU coolers fit in my case or are compatible with my motherboard.  If these coolers are not compatible with my build than do you have any suggestions? Some advice will be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thank you.

Thank you very much for replying but I already knew this. After careful consideration, I have decided to go with the i7-8700k since it's on the list of compatible CPUs for this PC and is pretty much identical when it comes to performance compared to the i7-9700k. My main problem is that I don't know which CPU cooler is compatible with my motherboard and also fits in my case. Furthermore, I want to use the i7-8700k to its fullest potential (overclocking) so it has to be a CPU cooler that can handle this. There is very little information about this online. Can someone please help me?
