@ZainE , welcome to the Community.

 

HP has their motherboards made to their specifications.  Therefore, they are not necessarily the same as a retail board.  The main concern is the hole spacing on the board matching the stand-offs in the new case.  Also, the front connectors don't always match those on the new case.  Your best option would be to choose a case manufacturer and contact their Tech Support to see if they can tell you if their case is compatible with a HP motherboard.
