Swapping motherboards

Pavillion: 500-277c
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have an HP Pavillion m7480n Media Center of which I really like the case.  Will the motherboard for a Pavillion 500-277c fit in the Media Center case?? 

 

Thanks,

-Chuck

Swapping motherboards

Both motherboards are uATX , but everything on the new motherboard will not align with the case from your ancient HP Pavillion m7480n Media Center case.  The I/O shield where the ports are on the motherboard probably won't line up either.

 

With that said, it isn't such a great idea.

Swapping motherboards

I suspected as much... and after asking and then evaluating further, the only thing it would add is some TV connections for which I have no use and a portable drive cavity -- which I never used.  I just liked the looks of the 'old' cabinet.  Thanks and I will leave things alone.
