    Default HP m2n78-la motherboard alternative??

    Hey guys, new here, but anyways I have an older HP Pavilion desktop with a m2n78-la motherboard that went bad. The tech I brought it into diagnosed this. I did some research but all alternatives are discontinued. He suggested a generic version because the HP motherboard is known for this issue of overheating and afraid it will happen again with a true replacement. Anyways, just wondering if anyone on here have any suggestions.
