OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Bad motherboard and CPU. was just wondering what motherboard and cpu i should replace in my OMEN to get it to run again. I'm not sure what parts are compatible with the model and would rather get second and third opinions.

@jimbriggs , welcome to the Community.

 

Your best option would be to find the exact motherboard.  This will assure that all of the components will work properly.  HP has their motherboards made to their specifications.  Therefore, the stand-offs in the case may not be the same as a different motherboard.  Here are the Product Specifications for the computer.  Look at the section titled "Processor/Processor upgrade information" for a list of compatible processors.  They have all been tested to assure they are compatible with the motherboard.  You could actually upgrade to an i7-7700.

Looks to me like your motherboard is a standard microATX.

Perhaps the back IO won't fit perfectly and require some case modification, depending on the board you choose.
Your current CPU also requires the board to have a H170 chipset/LGA 1151 socket, but if you switch out the motherboard your future CPU would need to match it's chipset/processor socket.

I don't know how much you'd want to change, but the compatibility mainly depends on the motherboard you choose (I think).
