HP OMEN CPU Upgrade

HP OMEN 880-020
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey I am currently using the HP OMEN 880-020 and I have a Ryzen 5 1400 processor. My buddy went ahead and bought a new CPU for his pc and he is gifting me with a Ryzen 7 1700 with wraith cooler. I am a newbie when it comes to computers and that was the reason I went ahead and bought a pre-built. I want to upgrade the cpu though but I read online that the wraith cooler will not work with the motherboard. Also it says to update your bios and currently my bios is showing as F.04-07/10/2017 I have tried to update it but I get the message "This update is for BIOS family 8437, version F.50. I am getting the cpu in a few days and I just want to be prepared to install it correctly.

HP OMEN CPU Upgrade

Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

You want this BIOS update (Link) for MB SSID 8309.

 

AMD CPU heatsinks (Wraith) use a rectangular mounting system.

 

HP, for some reason, uses a square CPU socket heatsink mounting system on the Higos motherboard.

 

The Ryzen 1700 is a 65 watt CPU so hopefully the current HP installed heatsink and fan should be okay.

 

Regards
