Dell Inspiron 5378 upgrades

I've recently bought an Inpsiron 5378, and I was hoping to do some upgrades to it. What would you guys recommend for parts? I'm looking for: - a replacement screen, preferably FHD or 4k, doesn't need to be a touch screen - Memory upgrade (I think I need a 8gb stick @ 1200MHz) - Processor upgrade/overclocking? - Converting SATA to M.2 connection? Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

Re: Dell Inspiron 5378 upgrades

As far as the memory is concerned, that is DDR4 2133 although Crucial shows 2400 as compatible.. And total RAM is either 4, 8, 12, or 16 GB.Storage is one 2.5" HDD or SSD. Conversion to M.2 is not available. FHD screens (your screen is probably 1920x1080)  are available I have been unable to source a 4K screen and keep in mind that the GPU on this system is one of the Intel integrated types (UHD 620 etc.).

As far as a CPU upgrade or overclock, the CPU is locked and cannot be overclocked. And to upgrade the CPU you would have to replace the motherboard. The CPU is not removable.
