Upgrading CPU Fan & Heatsink

HP Recommended
Omen by Hp Desktop PC - 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently I've upgraded my RAM (from 8GB to 16 GB) and my CPU (i5 - 7400 to a i7-770k). However my CPU fan looks like it can't keep it cooled enough like it did with the other one (the i5 that is), so I figured that getting a better fan for it is better. But the problem is I'm not quite sure on how to go about deciding and buying it, especially when trying to figure out if its compatible with my mother board or not.

Welcome to the forum @ElusiveTwo1

 

Both the i5-7400  and  i7-7700 are 65 Watts

 

Intel Core i7-7700 (Kabylake) 3.6 GHz Quad Core
65 W
Intel HD Graphics 630
Intel Core i5-7400 (Kabylake) 3.0 GHz Quad Core
65 W
Intel HD Graphics 630

 

There should be no noticeable temperature change???

Well, sometimes my cpu will overheat if I’m playing an intense game (like battlefield V) which I can hear it running really loudly. Sometimes overheating. Any solution for that problem?

Is water cooling compatible with my motherboard? Because I’m not sure about it as I have no prior knowledge about water cooling.

It is not being compatible with your motherboard it is fitting it to your CPU and Exhaust Fan.

 

Try asking here if there is a fan compatible with your 870-224???

Just to point out that OP has upgraded his/her CPU to i7-7700k - which is more demanding when heat dissipation is taken into account:

 

Processor
TDP
Integrated Graphics
Intel Core i7-7700K (Kabylake) 4.2 GHz Quad Core
91 W
Integrated HD Graphics 630

 

Good to hear that you actually made it work - I am thinking about similar upgrade in the future (maybe).

 

When it comes to heatsink / fan - would standard, off-the-shelf units work really here? I was under impression that HP MoBos are difficult to handle due to possibly altered dimensions and require HP-supplied cooling assemblies? Perhaps I'm mistaken.

 

Perhaps @grzwacz will be able to help?
