Will an i7-6700 or i7-6700K run on a motherboard designed for a low power i7-6700T?

I have an HP Hamar motherboard that supports a 35W i7-6700T. I currently have an i5-6400T in there and would like to upgrade.

I am finding the appropriate i7-6700T to be difficult to find from a reliable source, though the i7-6700 and the i7-6700K seem to be readily available.

Will either of these other i7 processors operate on the Hamar motherboard? I don't need the full performance capabilities of the 6700 or 6700K, I just want the i5 to i7 upgrade.

As far as I can tell, the answer is no. You really need to be asking HP this question, however.
