HP Pavilion CASE UPGRADE

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 590-p0081c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, 

I am trying to find out if there are any alternative/gaming tower cases on the market that I could move my HP Pavilion 590 into so that I can upgrade my PSU, or at very least give the machine better ventilation. My understanding is that the Linc's motherboard (24.9 x 26.7 cm) being proprietary can make this process difficult. I've replaced the factory GPU Radeon RX550 with a Nvidia GTX 1650, as well as upgraded my 12GB RAM to 16GB. I worry about my GTX 1650 both being under-powered and over-heated.

Any suggestions on how to find a case that would accommodate this machines parts, or where to look would be very much appreciated, as I'm a novice at PC builds.

@michael_flora , welcome to the Community.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will explain what to consider when trying to move your HP motherboard to a new case: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Moving-HP-Motherboard-to-a-new-gaming-case/ta-p/...

 

The two main things to consider are: 1) the holes in the motherboard matching the stand-offs in the new case.  This can cause a lot of damage if it touches other parts on the motherboard, and 2) the front connectors in the case matching those on the motherboard.

 

Your best option is to choose a case manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help.  They are the experts on the products.  They may be able to tell you if their case is compatible with your HP motherboard.

You are very welcome, @michael_flora!

 

You will definitely save yourself time and frustration by contacting the manufacturers.  I don't know about you, but I don't like paying to return a component that doesn't work!

 

Good luck!
