    Hi @HaykAvet1syan these are the characteristics of the service manual of the compatible processors, i don't think it would be interesting to put in a larger processor because its memory is limited to 8GB and the performance of a larger processor would not be noticeable in general, in addition to the cost of a change.


    All the best.

    So the key takeaways here are that you can't put a 7th gen processor in, only the 2nd gen the motherboard supports, with the same TDP as the stock versions due to the cooling requirements, but you should be able to take it up to 8GB of memory.
