    The Nitro N50-610 desktop has a proprietary Acer mainboard and its about the size of a DTX compatible mainboard form factor with dimensions of about 200mm x 321mm. so that is the type of board that you can replace it with, the oem Acer board has an Intel Chipset H470 paired with the 10th Gen cpu like the i7-10700 / i5 10400 / i5 10400F / i3 10100 CPUs.

    If you want to change this board measure your existing N50-610 internal spaces exactly first, and upgrade to an appropriate size mainboard that will be compatible with the Intel 10th Gen cpu and with the upgraded XMP type ram that you want for your N50-610 desktop, as you will also need to buy a new PSU as the N50-610 also has a proprietary Acer 300W-500W PSU power plug and this Acer PSU does not have a standardized 24pin power plug that a new replacement mainboard would have, as you will need a new standard ATX PSU for the new board to power up.

    Well, I upgraded the psu to a 650w, and after some research I am going to get a i7-10700 CPU to see how that works with my rtx 3060, I will look at mobos here after Christmas might be some good sales. Thanks for the input you're appreciated.
