    Mixing memory speeds

    It probably wont post if the speeds dont match up.
  2. As @fasauceome said the newer zen2 chipset will be coming out soon, and a 1700x or 2700x would be a good option, as the zen2 will be same AM4 platform. I went with a 2700x knowing that I will be upgrading soon.

    New PC build with some old stuff

    You should try out https://pcpartpicker.com/ Are you doing water cooling loops? What's the use for the EATX case? yes it'll all work together.
  4. That's not on bestbuy to give that, that's on the manufacturer. The whole system comes in one box and we put it on the shelf. Just take it back, and explain. If you are within the 14 days of return policy, they should have no issue returning it regardless if you tried to add a different cooler.
  5. I work at BestBuy. Do not take what I say as customer support or on the behalf of bestbuy in any way shape or form. Did you but the computer as open box, a shelf display, or as new in box?

    27" Apple Thunderbolt Display

    If you are trying to use the iMac as a second display for another computer, it won't work. EDIT: Did not realize this was the monitor, not mac

    My internet router isn't working as it should.

    Is it a modem/router combo? Is the router fully working when only hardlined and not using wifi?

    Should I overclock ? (Newbie)

    Bottleneck is when your CPU isn't able to keep up with usually your GPU. If you notice any FPS loss, stuttering, light freezes ect, you are probably bottlenecked.

    Should I overclock ? (Newbie)

    If you haven't done it before, I always encourage to do some research and then play around with overclocking. As @Jurrunio said if you are not bottlenecked, no real reason to OC, but for learning, all the more reason to.

    Buying new graphics card and using it later

    Of course you can, but why?

    Printer paper

    Do you want glossy or matte?
  12. No you are underclocking it to match. Slower performance. I would just look at getting 3200 again, itll save a headache. EDIT: Did not see @Enderman's post above. Same thing. Yes you will see issues if you don't underclock it.

    Right now I have the LG 32GK850F but I will be switching that out, not entirely sure what I will switch it with just yet.
  14. The program itself is not illegal, it's what they choose to do with it. If their intention is to watch copyrighted content for free, that is what is technically illegal. Will they go to jail for it? Most likely not. Will you go to jail for installing it? Most likely not. Will they get a nice letter from their ISP for watching copyrighted content, and being fined a hefty amount? More than likely at some point.
