Is an i7 8700k compatible with my motherboard?

Hi forum,

I am looking to upgrade my processor in my prebuilt pc, an omen 880-001na. I was looking at the support page for it here to find the socket type and I saw the recommended processor upgrades and the one I am looking at the I7 8700k isn't listed despite the socket and TDP matching the spec of the others. I am new to pc gaming so I thought it best to ask here before putting down the money sorry if this question has an obvious answer.

Hello @Dunham97

 

The general rule of thumb when it comes to HPs is, what ever is listed in the upgrade of the specs, is the only upgrade compatible with that system. Reason being is that HP bios's are limited and locked down. So No, the 8700K will not work on your motherboard. Unless HP made a bios update to fix that, it wont work and HP isnt going to release such an update. Im sorry.
