I probably shouldn't answer this as I'm a noob Robert... That being said....

I don't know that adding "gaming" to many pc products means anything to be honest...

The question is do you need a motherboard running at stock because your setup runs fine in regards to frame rates and temps now....

Or do you need to overclock your setup for better framerates....

Cheap motherboards have questionable power deliver for overclocking, but are fine for normal gaming...

More expensive boards generally allow better overclocking because of more expensive power delivery components

Yes, you can go smaller than Atx, there are some very good smaller form boards.... But best value for money seems to be in the ATX format........

Tank you for your oppinion. And yes i was stupid few years back when i thout that word "gaming" adds something. But main problem is still that my ethernet port does notwork, my gpu port durned and few usb ports dont work. Mainly thats the reason why I want to change it. and it would be nice to get small one

Given your air cooling, running a graphics card under its own cooling.... and want to game for long periods..... I would stick with the atx format for price, options of boards and the fact your current cooling will support a moderate cpu overclock..... Your components will definitely transfer to a small form factor system fine, but you might struggle with cooling under an overclock with those components.... Liquid cooling is pretty much needed for small form factor machines with any kind of decent overclock running......
