Exactly as the titel suggests. I newly bought an hp pavilion elite hpe 330 sc and since case looks pretty cool and the processor is kinda meh, I'm wondering whether it would be possible to replace the motherboard with one from optiplex 790 ?

Pavilion Elite form factor = Tower

OptiPlex 790 form factor - Mini-tower

Should be okay but I suggest doublechecking the cases and motherboard specs along with reading the applicable installation documents.

May be some restriction or other limitations in the fine print.

Details matter.

I read a bit about them online. It said they were the same form factor, micro atx I think. I'll have to open them up and check
