Yes i figured there was a chance it would as i said. The system was available with that CPU originally. Glad it works.

That system was available with the i5-3470 so in theory it should just work. However if youve searched HP forums and people are telling you it needs a BIOS update it needs to be done BEFORE installing the CPU. Put the latest one in 8.14
