I have an Omen Obelisk 875 0160. I want to upgrade my motherboard so my cpu can overclock.

I am new to upgrading, and working on computers. I would like to upgrade the motherboard so I can overclock my CPU. Maybe add some better cooling options as well. Does anyone know of a good option?

@JoshStrunk , welcome to the Community.

 

HP has their motherboards made to the specifications.  Therefore, they are not necessarily the same as a retail board.  Using the case for a retail board may not work.  The holes in the motherboard may not match the stand-offs in the case.  Also, the front connectors in the case don't always match those on the board.

 

Most importantly, the i7-9700F can not be overclocked.  It doesn't have an unlocked multiplier.  The model with the unlocked multiplier has a K (i7-9700K).  There are numerous articles online that you can read to see the difference.
