I have the omen obelisk gtx1060 model. I am wanting to upgrade the motherboard but don’t know if I could move up to an atx from the micro.

Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

The Obelisk is a very new product by HP.

 

Why do you want to change the motherboard (MB)? You may void your HP warranty if you change the MB.

 

HP generally uses uATX MBs. HP also uses proprietary MB designs. A ATX MB may not fit in your HP chassis.

 

You may (most likely will) have to purchase a new Windows product key if you change the MB.

 

Regards

Because this mother board is super basic no other usb headers to run fans on or anything. And I want to go to z370 chipset. And I have my os on my ssd I should be fine. The current mb is micro are I don’t really see much more room to fit a bigger board. Well guess I’ll have to upgrade the trash case too. Case fan is 80mm which is super odd ball. Only one slot for a 120mm fan so it gets super warm inside the case. Idk for how hyped these omen obelisk PCs are I am upset I didn’t just build my own. And they freaking market it as easily upgradable but everything is a pain honestly lol. Just want like 1 extra fan for exhaust and some rgb / usb headers
