now i will buy an i5-12600k with Asus prime z690-p wi by (ddr4), the purpose is 3D programming and design. in 3 years I think I will start the computer engineering degree course and I asked myself SATA this build which upgrades I would need to do in 4/5/6 years, during the degree course as the calculations and the workload it always gets a little heavier. what I would like to do is not to change the CPU and motherboard, but I don't know if it would be worthwhile for a good upgrade

thank you very much for your availability !! with the storage I'm thinking of getting a nvme m.2 pcie 4.0 SSD with good casual reading for Windows and Linux and a SATA SSD with good writes that also heats up a lot but has high thermal throtting ranges, that is, I don't want it already at 70 degrees begin to drop performance, programming and gaming use, 3d design

I suspect either the 12600K or 12700K would last you pretty well. However if your talking 5 years solid use or potentially more, if you can afford it you will be better served by the i7. NVME drives should run fairly cool if covered with a large heatsink, without it they get extremely hot. My advice would be to get a good motherboard, CPU and PSU. You can easily add more RAM and storage later.

thank you very much, that's just what I wanted to do. It is not worth thinking about changing the CPU or mobo, there are 2 very limiting upgrades.
