Motherboard replace

Omen #870-119
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to know if that is possible with the motherboard change on my Omen #870-119 desktop case. I am not sure if that will fit or not. I was looking at different vendor with B450 gaming motherboard also the memory rams and CPU processor. Will that work or not.

 

Thank you,

 

John

I'm not specifically knowledgeable about your specific computer, but a lot of work might need to be done and I would think you would be upgrading the ram and CPU as well.  Power supply could become an issue with the higher performance hardware.  I'd say sell your PC and put the money toward the computer system you want.  It can become a money pit, but it's doable if you want to spend the time and money.  I looked up the system and you should have the room in the case for it.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is.

@jpmackay1 

You can install a µATX motherboard in the case. The original 500W PSU is viable. The B450 Gaming motherboard at the following link will work.

https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-B450-Gaming-AMD-Motherboard/dp/B07Q5VJXK8

 

Using the original HP Omen  case will save you some funds.

Thank you to you, Erico for your message. That is my plan to keep the HP Omen case and already upgraded to 500 watts power supply on my desktop. All I need to do is to get the motherboard also processor.

 

Thank you again.

So if I understand you correctly, that would make my post the solution as it actually answered your question instead of the one that is marked as the solution. Is that accurate?

Don't forget you may have to upgrade you RAM to DDR4 as well.

@ejett 

If you look at the 870-119 motherboard specs you will see that it used DDR4.  If the new motherboard uses the same processor it will also use the same generation of memory modules.

Thanks for the Reply, Erico.  Because of it, I was able to find the answer to 3 questions regarding my MB.  Apparently some techs can't read the specs or know how to access them.   Unless, of course, they are too lazy.
