I am seeking to upgrade the CPU to an i9-10900. This is the non k version which has a 65 watt tdp, will I be okay with keeping the same power supply in this, and is the motherboard going to be compatible with this new cpu?

OK found another model in your same series that does in fact use the 9th gen CPU with the same motherboard and same bios update. I am comfortable saying you are good to go. 👍

What is your HP Omen ? Its specs should show a list of compatible CPU's from BIOS and motherboard. Please check what is it ? HPSA should tell you what it is.

I think Banhien is telling you to take your model number and lookup your specs page. It will tell you the CPU's that can be used. https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-875-0000-obelisk-desktop-pc-series/23302709/model/23...
But to answer your question more directly... No, you cannot upgrade to a 10th gen CPU. The socket used is completely different from the ones that the 8th-9th gen use.
From your specs, you have the biggest CPU upgrade your model will handle already.
Hope that helps clear things up.

Sorry I was looking on the first page of specs for your specific model, The motherboard page does show its been updated to allow the 9th gen. But you cannot upgrade to the 10th Gen as you originally asked.
I will want to research the bios update notes to see if the upgrade was in place for yours. With HPs, The bios has to allow the upgrade. You will need to update the bios first if you plan on upgrading. If I find anything to the contrary in the notes, I will let you know.
