Question Motherboard for i7-2600k

I do not know of any motherboard for LGA1155 that supports M.2 SSDs.

I suggest you keep your current motherboard and add a 2.5in SATA SSD. Preferably a good one like a Crucial MX500. The performance difference between a good M.2 NVME and a good 2.5in SATA SSD is not noticeable in normal usage, especially with such an old system.

Thanks, then I'll probably just upgrade to a SATA SSD and more RAM. I need this because I will have to read, write and chrunch some number.
