I've got these two PC:

Dissi Stock AMD
MoBo Asus TUF Gaming Pro B450
GPU on-board
RAM 16GB DDR4 3200Ghz
PSU CM MWE 450 White
CASE Zalman S5 White + 3 fans

For (in this order): Internet; YouTube+Movies; and Gaming (very, very seldom).


CPU Ryzen 5 3600
Dissi Arctic 34 eSports
MoBo MSI X470 Gaming Plus Max
GPU EVGA 1660 Super
RAM Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR4 3600Ghz
PSU EVGA 650 GQ 80 Plus Gold
HDD Toshiba P300 3TB
CASE Corsair 275r Airflow+6 fans (3 Arctic F12 PWM+3 Noctua 12 PWM)

For (in this order): Gaming; Internet; Office.

Which SSD of these should I mount in the first PC and which in the second one:
- Crucial MX500 500GB CT500MX500SSD1

- Kingston SA2000M8 500GB SSD M.2 2280 NVMe XTS-AES?


Should I buy and mount a cooler on the Kingston NVMe? Which one?


THANKS!
