Dells are proprietary.  This isn't supported ever.

You can probably find another board but will also need to replace:

The case

the power supply

the heastsink assembly and fans

Along with purchase a retail copy of Windows (the OEM copy will activate only on the Dell board).

RE: Inspiron 3847 motherboard upgrade

You'll need a board that supports the CPU you have -- not all 1150 boards have the same CPU support.  And as above, you won't be able to re-use your existing Windows license on a non-Dell board.
