The only way to be sure of having no "connector problems" when replacing a Dell motherboard is to replace it with an identical motherboard.


Any other Dell motherboards that may physically fit in your mini tower case (assuming that you are correct about your current motherboard) will not necessarily connect with the front panel USB/Audio/power switch/indicator light  board or it's cable. Dell PSU connections can also be a bit unpredictable.


Fitting anything other than a Dell motherboard to a Dell case is not something to attempt if you're looking for an easy modification.
