No, that's not great. The 11700 runs hot.

What is your motherboard currently? You may not need a new motherboard depending on what it is.
 

I am currently annoyed at Apple for making a stupid incompatibility between their iMac G5 ALS 1.8 GHz and iMac G5 ALS 2 GHz logic board models.

820-1540-A, while the same form factor (and is 95% compatible) does not work interchangeably with 820-1747-A because one has pins and one has pin sockets.

why not keep your current motherboard and jusy upgrade to the 3600 or the 5600x? you will get far better performance and much better temps. it will save money too because you will not need to change your motherboard

A320 doesn't support Zen 3.

To change your chipset you'll need a new motherboard. It's not like a CPU that you can just slot in (yet).

If you do want the 11700, and if u play to upgrade ur GPU, I STRONGLY suggest u get a higher wattage (and maybe higher rating) power supply. the 11700 has a high TDP under load, and you will also need a more sufficient cooler rather than the Intel stock cooler.

For the 11700 and maybe a 3070, I would get 850 watts and gold rated. If u get a 3060 ti or a 3060, 750 or 650 watts, respectively, should be good.
