Default Help with finding a motherboard? That fits certain, CURRENT pc parts

Hey Tech Forums! This is my first post/thread here! So "bonjour" and all that.

I currently have a Packard Bell iXtreme m5800 PC. IThis also means that the motherboard I am using is an iXtreme m5800 ( I have searched endlessly on the web for information about this mobo to find NOTHING! )
I am using an NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 660 Graphics Card (2GB)
With an i5 650 CPU - Not overclocked
I also have 11 GB of RAM


Now, for the question :
I have recently bought a CPU upgrade for this PC, and purchased the : i5-4460 CPU. upon installation I concluded that it didn't actually fit. Thererfore I am in need of a motherboard that will fit this processor AND all of the other bits and pieces I already have!

I am in need of you motherboard geni to help solve this issue!

I will also attach some pictures of my PC! (hopefully they are useful!)

Basically you need a LGA1150 mATX motherboard that has four DIMM slots, as the i5-4460 is a LGA1150 chip and you have four sticks of RAM. Something like this:

I notice that in this instance you said "mATX"? This means micro ATX right? So will my Graphics card (the GTX 660) fit into that?

You can also go cheaper and grab an H81 board since you don't have a K series CPU.

H81M-P33 V2 Intel H81 S1150 MSI Micro ATX Motherboard - Scan.co.uk

One thing you need to check is see if that HP case has proprietary connections. It doesn't look like it does. And for the love of god clean the dust up.

When I was installing the CPU i didn't want to risk any erroneous occurances whilst fiddling around in the case therefore I only cleared up some of that dust! But don't worry I will clear it up!

Also I don't think that the Case has any proprietary connections and looking at the backplane, seems to be considerably normal!

mATX is just a smaller motherboard compared to regular ATX, exactly what you have. (mATX that is)

Being an OEM case, it might not have the mATX riser screw holes for the new board. Some OEM cases use pre-formed risers and you might need to pull your ATX board to see if an mATX is compatible with your OEM board tray
Alright, I'm living in the UK right now, so I will check this tomorrow, will update this thread when I find out!
