I currently have a lenovo thinkcentre m92p Core i7 3770, I recently was gifted a GTX 1080 TI strix asus and a evga 650 gtq PSU. I just recently got a new case to start moving parts over to. But I realize due to the PSU and usb3.0 compatibility to the old motherboard I should just get a new motherboard instead of buying a bunch of adapters.

my question is, can I used the CPU and ram from the old computer? the CPU is as stated before core i7 3770, and the ram is i believe 4GB Module - DDR3-12800 (PC3-1600) 4 of em

will everything transfer over fine? is there a certian motherboard I need to get for this to work? the old mother board is a micro ATX does it make any difference getting a regular ATX motherboard or should i stick with another micro ATX?

I have recent experience moving a Lenovo M91P to a new case. What I found is that the USB3.0 have two extra ground pins at one end but the rest of the pins are wired the same as a standard USB3.0 header. It also had a temperature sensor that if you don't move across to the new case will cause the CPU cooling fan to throttle up to 100% making it very noisy. Thankfully the PSU connector on M91P was compatible with standard PSUs not like HPs that use a proprietary power connector to stop these upgrades.
