Everything is on socket LGA 1700 now (since 12th gen in 2021) including the new 13th gen chips.
You'll also be missing the option of using newer faster ddr5 and PCIe 5 NVME ssd's and the potential % increase in performance.
Just my 2 pence!
You can get a 10400f for under £100 and you're only losing a couple of cores and perhaps a couple of hundred mhz - cclonline.com/bx8…pu/
If you actually need the extra cores then you are better spending a bit more for a newer platform as it will be a LOT faster. Competition has really kicked off in the last couple of years between AMD and Intel.
My new laptop has a Ryzen 5600H CPU, and it does handbrake encodes a little quicker than my i5 10500, and uses a lot less power in doing so!
