There's more of a chance of a new one failing than an existing one that is proven to be fine.

You're better off saving that money in case the board dies or the GPU which are the most likely to as those are the ones getting the hottest and most stressed.

Plus their value now is not worth paying to protect. Not when you can pick up Ryzen 1600 and B450 boards so cheaply.

I would think more about saving for a new rig rather than spending money to protect an old one.

4 cores alone are no longer enough to guarantee every game will run smoothly, so I would be more concerned about that TBH.
