It will not. The 7890K is FM2+ which doesn't work in a FM2 motherboard. Also according to the specs on the computer the best CPU you can get in it is the A10-5800K https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03343058
Right now I have a AMD A8-5500, would that AMD A10 5800k even be worth it to upgrade to or am I better off buying a newer mini and get a new cpu from there. I am on a budget and did not want to spend a ton of money but if the 5800K just doesn’t make sense then it doesn’t make sense ya know? Thanks for any help and input!

I am working in adobe premier making videos and I would like to add I tried to save a short 1 minute video and the program crashed wiping all of my work. The cpu loaf was showing 100% what would you suggest?

The difference between the two is clock speed with the A10 have a 600MHz higher base clock and a 1GHz higher boost clock. You would be better served with a new system than doing that minor upgrade on a 6-7 year old system.
