Question Replacing motherboard- stupid questions (help me please)

Hey guys!

Speccy says my motherboard is overheating (122°C). I'd like to replace it but I have no idea what I need to know / take into account.

I'd figure I need to know the new motherboard is compatible with all the other components of my PC and with the case. How do I figure that out?

Speccy gives me "G11CD" as the model of my motherboard. That is the model of the PC sold as a complete, ready-to-use unit. How do I know the model of my motherboard? And, how do I know if it is full ATX or Micro ATX?

Is there anything else I need to think about before buying a new motherboard? I feel lost and can't find a lot of information online.

Huge thanks in advance for a reply to even one of these questions! My specs are below:

Speccy most likely is lying.
It is a generic software. It may not be able to read every possible hardware sensor on every computer correctly.

If your only consideration is, what Speccy is telling you, then just ignore.
Check temperatures in BIOS or with some hardware specific monitoring tool (if there is one available at manufacturer support site).

Hi! Sorry for the late reply. I checked the temperature in BIOS and while it didn't show a temp for the motherboard, it did have a CPu temp which said 44 degrees. Thank you so much, your reply literally saved me some money I don't have. I hope you have a great rest of the summer!
