Hi,

 

The 790 series PCs use non standard sized motherboards (MB) and proprietary power supply connections.

 

You can only use a HP designed MB in your PC's chassis. The Berks MB (Link) is installed in your chassis.

 

Regards

Hi,

 

The only solution is to buy new: case, retail motherboard supporting your existing CPU, power supply, and Windows 10 product key.

 

Now use other existing HP components such as RAM, CPU, and storage devices in the new PC build.

 

You can then upgrade other components as you wish using standardized parts.

 

Regards
