CPU bottleneck

HP Recommended
Omen 880-010
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have the Omen desktop, 880-010. I do a lot of strict gaming with it and I am starting to notice the downfalls of the AMD ryzen 5 and want to upgrade to a new gen i5 or i7.


what processor and motherboard will fit inside the case? 


Edit 1: if anyone knows if I can keep the motherboard and put in a processor like an intel i5 8400 without any issues, please let me know

You are better off keeping the motherboard and installing up to a 1700 or 1800X 95w CPU.

But you will also need the 95w liquid cooler to go with it.

HP doesnt sell these parts or motherboards. So you will have to find a liquid cooler solution on the web.

Welcome to the HP Support Community  @Boyddr 


You cannot install an Intel CPU in an AMD socket.


You can upgrade to:


AMD Ryzen7-1800X (Summit Ridge) 3.6 GHz, 8 cores/16 threads

Do you have the Liquid Cooling System installed???
