HP Omen AMD Upgrades

Hey so HP left me in the dust and won't confirm nor deny if the later AM4 processors like the Ryzen 7 and 9 series will work in my HP Omen 880-010z.  If anyone has been successful in upgrading they desktops, please let me know.  I understand the Ryzen 9 3000 series are backwards compatible with AM4 B350 motherboards.  My HP Omen has a Higos HP motherboard with a Ryzen 7 1700.  It can be upgraded to an 1800x, but the a Ryzen 9 is enticing to me.  I understand the regular gaming boards with a Ryzen 7 1700 can handle a Ryzen 9.  The 1800x is 105 watts I believe and so are the Ryzen 9's that I am looking at.  Can anyone confirm that the Bios won't hinder the upgrade?  If I try it out to see if it works, will it blow up per say?  If it doesn't work I will simply build a new computer from scratch with the new Ryzen 9 unless the Ryzen 9 can be return for a threadripper, given they are close in pricing compared to a Ryzen 7 to a Ryzen 9.  I can confirm that my 2080ti upgrade works in my Omen if that says anything.  Any help would be awesome.  Thanks guys!
