@ImaNoob , welcome back to the forum.

 

Your best option would be to buy the same motherboard.  Unfortunately, HP no longer sells it.  I normally recommend searching ebay.  Here is the HP Part # 862992-602.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will explain why changing motherboards may not work: 

 

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Moving-HP-Motherboard-to-a-new-gaming-case/ta-p/...

 

It discusses moving your HP motherboard to another case, but you will meet the same obstacles if you try to upgrade the motherboard using the HP case.

 

Caution:  Make certain that you use an Anti-static wrist band when working on your computer:  https://www.newegg.com/electronix-express/p/1W9-0067-00012?Description=anti%20static%20wrist%20band&...

 

Otherwise, you may damage the new motherboard or other components.  You can most likely find one at Office Depot for a reasonable price.
