Changing motherboard

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP 880-070no

I am looking to replace my current motherboard to an new mother board because the current on doesn't support 3rd Gen AMD CPUs. The current motherboard that I am looking to buy is MSI B450M Mortar Max but I have no idea if it is completely compatible with my current mother board, it looks like it will fit since it's a mico ATX 24.4.x24.4 cm motherboard. So it should fit right. But will there be other problems that will appear if I buy and install the new motherboard

You can use reverse logic and read this article.

Problems:  motherboard stand-offs, rear faceplate issue, front switch issues, and the present WIN 10 is locked to the original HP motherboard.  That is just a sample of the issues.
