swaping the computer to another case

HP Recommended
875-0039
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good day to all,

I am trying to figure out how to take the left side panel off on my omen obelisk model # 875-0039. I know the glass side panel pops off, but it looks like the left side panel is riveted on?

I am new to building / upgrading so I appreciate the help. Perhaps its something very simple I over looked

 

Thanks in advance

 

Matt.

@Pud87 , welcome back to the forum.

 

Before you decide to move your motherboard to a new case, here is a HP Knowledge Base article that you should read.  This will help you decide if you should do it or not.

 

If you decide that it is possible to move your motherboard, here is a video to help you:

 

 

It appears that you don't have to remove the back side panel of the case.  If you have further questions don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for the reply. I watched the video, and only showed how to remove and replace the motherboard in the factory case.

I did morning digging on the internet and didn't find much in the way of removing the left side panel. The left side panel needs to be removed in order to remover the power supply cables as the connectors do not fit through the openings. I had to do this by drilling out all the rivets, unscrew one at the bottom and then pry the panel off as it was glued on to the tower. I now Have it in a Deepcool Matrexx 50 and have 6 RGB fans. 3 are hooked up as intake with 3 as exhaust. I also replaced the stock cooler as the computer seemed to run pretty hot for my liking. I installed a Cooler Master master Hyper 212 with a duel fan set up. The CPU no longer hits above 70 degrease. with the original set up from factory it was hitting temps of 97 degrease. 97 degrease was how it ran from new. I am much happier with the configuration now 🙂

 

Thanks  again for your insite 🙂

You are welcome, @Pud87!  Thank you for the additional information.

 

I knew that the video didn't show how to remove the side panel, but thought you were just interested in removing the motherboard.  I am glad that you were able to do what you wanted to do.
