Solved!

CPU upgrade

I know my mother board supports CPU upgrades per your web information. I am curious if it will support an i5-4690K? Current info shows it will accept the 4670, will a bios update be needed, and if so, will HP release it?

Len, welcome to the forum.

 

The processors in the supported list have been tested to assure that they work properly in the motherboard.  If it is not on the list, it doen't necessarily mean that it won't work.  It means that there is no guaranty that it will work.  You are on your own.  The "K" means that the multiplier is unlocked and it can be overclocked.  HP doesn't allow for overclocking on their motherboards; except for their gaming computers.  You would be paying for a feature that you can't utilize.

The 4690K install went fine. The K version was actually cheaper to buy. I did update the BIOS and UEFI drivers first. Just in case anyone else asks.
