Hi.
Im a video editor and I want to upgrade my pc a little bit.
my current system is:
3400G + asus b450m-a.
rtx 3060 12gb
DDr4 3200 32gb Ram.

I want to get this case:ASUS Prime AP201 MicroATX Case|Gaming Cases|ASUS Global
I want to get the most out of my GPU and i Think that the current cpu isnt good ebough for him.

I was thinking about two paths i can go.
Staying with the current system and just replace the CPU for 5600x/5700x and This case.

or get 13600k with new DDr4 mobo.

  1. Is 13th gen intel get performance hit with ddr4?
  2. The b450m-a mobo have front usb 3.1 gen 1 connection, will it be able to plug to the usb c of this case?
any suggestions will be great.

thanks

No. Read page 13 in the case's manual, here. You would need a physical USB 3.2 Gen2 connector on the board to tether to. You could get an adapter but they lack the speeds in spite of allowing you to take advantage of the ports(not it's speed).

Is 13th gen intel get performance hit with ddr4?
You would need a Z690/Z790 chipset board to get the best out of that 13th Gen i7 K suffix processor, you should ideally be on DDR4-3600MHz.

Thanks! Can you refer me to this kind of adapter?
