Upgrade CPU

HP Recommended
Omen By HP 870-121no
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello! I have an Omen By HP 870-121no and i wanna upgrade my CPU. On my computer's productspecification it says that i can only upgrade to an i7 6700 or i3 6100, but i think it's because my maximum Cpu TDP is at 65W. Can the motherboard support 6 cores/6 threds? 

 

Do you guys think that i will be able to upgrade my CPU to an i5 9500F/i5 9500? Or do i need to upgrade to a 4 cored cpu such as the intel Core i3-9100F?

Greetings,

Welcome back to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

The 6700 is the best you can do.
