"HP Pavilion 570-P078nl"'s Case and Motherboard

HP Pavilion 570-P078nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm planning to completely upgrade my PC, and just take the hard-disk and case from that PC. The problem is, that it has the Willow2 motherboard, it should be a microATX motherboard but it has a custom form factor. Do I need to also change the case?

"HP Pavilion 570-P078nl"'s Case and Motherboard

@paky586 , welcome to the forum.


HP has their motherboards made to their specifications.  Therefore, as you have found, the boards are not necessarily the same as a retail board.  This can present a problem with the connectors in the case; power button, etc.  They are not always compatible with the connectors on retail boards.  So, you should check this before deciding to keep the case.


Personally, I would buy an inexpensive case that will meet your needs.
