Shop for an I5-7600.
Give you a little more muscle for the same cost.

Motherboard not compatible

In reply to: Add-on

Thanks for the advice! But it seems that if I were to upgrade the processor, the motherboard would no longer be compatible. Am I wrong? Is it still worth it, and in that case, what motherboard should I get?

The msi site does not show a problem with using an I5-7600.

Where did you see incompatible?

You might want to test this using the stock cooler.

If it does the job you save a buck.

If not you can order the after market cooler.
