HP OMEN Desktop 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

I own an HP OMEN 870-224 desktop with an Intel Core i5-7400 on an Odense2-K motherboard I am wondering if 

     1. the CPU is unlocked and overclockable?

     2. what cooling/power supply upgrades I may need in case it is possible?

     3. if it is all possible, what software would you recommend for me to use?

Greetings,

Welcome back to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

Only Intel "k" processors are unlocked such as a i7-8700k processor.

 

HP does not usually provide BIOS overclocking even if you had a "k" processor.
