Nice to have

Pros: great to pair with PCIE-4 NVME motherboard and Corsair MP600

Cons: have not found any issue

Overall Review: a lot faster compare to my old quad core CPU

must have it

Corsair Force MP600 M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express Gen 4.0 x4 NVMe 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F500GBMP600
Corsair Force MP600 M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express Gen 4.0 x4 NVMe 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F500GBMP600

Pros: a lot faster than 2.5" SSD

Cons: no issue

Overall Review: try this one before upgrade CPU

Nice Motherboard

ASUS PRIME B560M-A LGA 1200 Intel B560 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS PRIME B560M-A LGA 1200 Intel B560 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Pros: quality looks good - made in China, 13 years old LGA775 heat sink works, old 3-pin case fan works and the speed can be lowered according to temperature, PCI-4 NVME slot with Corsair M600 is very fast, restoring 4GiB Linux system on same drive takes 14 seconds, 13 years old PC case also works 2 USB2.0 on front panel, HD audio can be set up 3 ports back + 2 ports front, I tried 5.1

Cons: Cons: the power light and hard drive light not work because the PC case is too old, if case fan connected to CPU_OPT it would run in full speed

Overall Review: This board has one DP two HDMI that support 4K x 60Hz, if no plan to play game no discrete graphic card is needed, it's affordable and extendable
