What is most powerful CPU upgrade for a Legion T530 Desktop that currently has a Ryzen 5 3400G?

What is most powerful CPU upgrade for a Legion T530 Desktop that currently has a Ryzen 5 3400G?  I know it has an AM4 socket, or at least believe it does.  Is the CPU limited by the chipset or BIOS?

Could this desktop take any AM4 processor other than what parts Lenovo sells for it?

Technically, yes. As long as the board's RAM is compatible with the new chip, you'll be fine.

 

If 4th gen Ryzen was out, there may be compatibility issues, but 3rd gen should be fine.

So could you put in a Ryzen 9 3900X version, not just the 3900 non "X" version?  I do see a wattage difference between the variation 65w vs 105w.
