Enthoo Pro M Acrylic is my case. And MSI Z270 SLI PLUS ATX LGA1151 is my motherboard. The case came with 2 x Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 82.1 CFM 140 mm Fan (It's 3 pin fan - 1 front and 1 rear)

The question now is: Would I be able to add 3 x Original fans (Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 82.1 CFM 140 mm Fan 3 pin - 1+ front and 2 on top) Will my motherboard support these? How can I see if my motherboard will support 3 or 4 pin fans? Thank you.

I see. Generally speaking, I will browse internet, play games, do some video editing and streaming and transfer some few gb files at times (not always). Would I preferably need heatsink? If so which heatsink would be best combined with one of these Sabrent Rocket 1 TB NVMe (Not 4.0 version) or HP EX920.

Are you saying there is no difference in speed, read/write and durability when using SATA 2.5" vs NVMe SSD?? I want faster, better read/write and durable SSD that can last me 3-5 years... :(

Is this good SSD? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/rwcRsY/pny-xlr8-cs3030-1-tb-m2-2280-nvme-solid-state-drive-m280cs3030-1tb-rb

Also, is WD Black or Blue which is better? I have WD Black 4 TB in mind for 175$ is that too expensive? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dGHRsY/western-digital-black-4tb-35-7200rpm-internal-hard-drive-wd4005fzbx

What other reliable good HDD can you recommend?

Nah, its not virus or driver fault. When I open many browser tabs, programs often it would take 5-10 seconds to load. When I press on program whilst loading it goes to not responding and back to normal.

Anyways back to the topic. Can you please advise on my question? Thank you :)

Thanks man. Got another question if you dont mind - what is Zen 2 and how it has upgrade future? sorry for noob question.

I was planning to get 1660 Ti. RTX 2070 or 2060 better bang for buck?

You are absolutely right. I have a gaming rig and this one is more likely to be workstation with mostly photo/video editing, rendering and streaming as well as data spreadsheets etc.

What do u mean by save cables by going with MX500 SATA SSD comes in M.2? The Intel - 660p Series 1 TB is also M.2-2280 - is there any difference? Pardon if I dont know really know all these.

Intel and Crucial are both M.2 2280 right? Therefore I chose the cheaper one.

1 TB SSD is for OS and other 1 TB SSD is for running games, programs etc. I have planned another 3 TB HDD for storage.

Please advice if i can make some improvements :)

Intel is better for games cuz of strong single core power yeah? But as I mentioned, for workstation and little bit of gaming Ryzen would be a better choice?

How about Mobo - which mobo is better for Ryzen 7 2700X? My budget would be around 1500-ish....
