Upgrading motherboard

HP Recommended
hp pavilion gaming desktop 690-0073w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade the motherboard in this desktop without changing the case. I understand the motherboard in it is a customized size and a new one if it can be upgraded might not meet all the features. But I plan on upgrading the case later and just buying a motherboard right now.
