kabylake refresh

HP Recommended
Pavilion envy 750-424
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have the i7 6700 locked cpu in this machine I was wondering since Kabylake came out is this machine compatible? It has the H170 chipset and the right socket and supports DDR4 it also has 16 Gigs of ram going from 3.4 to 4.2 seems like a excellent gain for the money right now, I am planning a Broadwell build if Ryzen doesn't cut it and would like this machine to have some go power for the time being. Once the broadwell machine is done I was going to build at my leisure a system around the Kabylake cpu

Hello, @mrbilky – Hope you are well 🙂
 

Thanks for your continued participation on the HP Forums! I’d like to help!

 

I see that you want to upgrade to the new Kaby Lake processor. I checked your product processor upgrade specifications and I see that these are the tested upgrades that you can do:

 

 

The above mentioned are the tested processor upgrades for your machine. Since the Kaby Lake is not tested, we will not be able to tell you whether this will work with your Pavilion or not. Check your product specifications here: http://hp.care/2m53t3S 


I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!

Good luck 🙂

Yeah I saw that but Kabylake came out after this unit and was hoping to hear someone tried it as it seems to meet all the criteria without any mention of a BIOS update was hoping a firmware upgrade or none at all was the ticket.

HP does have a few H170 chipset PCs that have Kabylake support.  I suggest that you evaluate the price/performance gains from where your PC is currently performing.  Keep checking on the BIOS updates (details and fixes) and see if HP develops a BIOS update to support Kabylake.
