Tecware f3 Micro ATX Case


Basically i want to upgrade my CPU to r5 3600 so my cpu dont bottleneck and for future upgrade.
Will prefer to get a Micro Atx Mobo around $150 USD price range.
Thinkning MSI 450 series maybe mortar max becos it will be nice to have two m.2 slots for future upgrade.

My current Case does not support ATX so any advice on which are the motherboards recommendations.
Also any ideas on ram compatiblities on the recommended mobos as well if i can reuse the current one or need to buy new ones. Prefer to have 16gb.

3600 compatible out of the box, well under your budget with Wifi & Bluetooth.

I built a system recently using this motherboard and the following memory, no issues. Make sure they are in the A2/B2 slots so you can enable XMP so that the memory runs at the correct speed, voltage & timings. The motherboard BIOS is easy to navigate.
