  1. Depends on the socket I guess. You probably won't find anything modern anymore with PCI slots, but motherboards 5 or 6 generations ago still supported them. You could also look into PCIe/USB to PCI adapters.

    SSD optimize

    Yup. If you type "defrag" into the windows search, you will be able to check the TRIM intervals. I think it's set to use TRIM once every week.

    SSD optimize

    No, when deleting files on modern operating systems, TRIM will tell the SSD controller, that the blocks that are affected by the deleted files, can be re-written. Usually, the controller wouldn't get notified about that. Manually trimming just updates the SSD controller. The point behind it is, to evenly write to all the available SSD cells and therefore increase the lifespan.

    SSD optimize

    That's wrong. It has, in fact, the exact opposite effect and lengthens the lifespan. That is also why in Windows 10 (and probably also Linux and MacOS) it is automatically enabled by default on all ATAs.

    SSD optimize

    It's a nice little feature but there is no need to use it manually, as Windows 10 will automatically take care of that.

    Router restarting randomly

    Oh, then it must be related to either the physical DSL connection from the wall to your router or simply your ISP. I'd definitely contact your ISP and tell them that they should send out a technician to at least check the connection going outwards.

    Installed new GPU Cooler Problem.

    Maybe it could be an issue related to simply not having any fans plugged into the fan header on the GPU's PCB. You could try to connect the fans from your old GPU cooler and see if that fixes the issue. Other than that I think it could only be an issue related to the install of the cooler. I would uninstall the cooler again and put the old one on, just to see if it's related to that.

    Help! squealing psu, should I be concerned?

    Yup, that's fine. If it's only a slight humming or squealing then it's not an issue. But if you're still not sure whether it's okay or not, you can always contact Corsair here: https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/support
  9. You could give GPU-Z a shot. That should be able to show you information about the integrated Intel HD GPU and the NVidia one. At the bottom, there is a drop-down menu to select each. https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/

    Help with upgrading ram

    Your old RAM does already support XMP. XMP just provides a selection of profiles for higher frequency RAM. What you are looking for is simply higher frequency RAM. I would like to know why tho.

    Which Will Last Me Longer?

    Probably the best comment here, considering it'll cost less than upgrading the entire platform and increase gaming performance as well. And if he already has a decent graphics card, he'll just need to enable NVENC and try that for himself.

    Help! squealing psu, should I be concerned?

    It's entirely normal for that to happen. My Corsair AX760i does it and my Corsair SF450 does it as well. It usually stops after a while or as soon as they are turned on.

    Router restarting randomly

    Which LEDs specifically turn off when it is resetting? All of them or just the ones on the ports? You said you changed the router. Do you mean you changed to a different model from a different manufacturer or to the same model? Also did that change anything? The first thing that comes to my mind when hearing that a router "resets" its connection, but doesn't fully power off and on, is that the individual ports your PC is connected to is powering off, because of an issue with either the cable or the port itself. So if it's only happening when your PC is connected over an ethernet cable for example, then it might also be an issue with your PC's LAN port and the switch is simply resetting the port to save itself from damage. If you have a switch you could try to place that in between the router and the PC and see if that changes anything.
  14. We don't really know how hot it is getting, so it is basically impossible to judge for us. I would say just replace the cable and/or the charger to be on the safe side, even tho it is probably just fine. But I don't want to be the one that tells you, that it is fine and then suddenly it goes up in flames.
  15. I don't know any software with which you can stream one OS to another, but what you could use to at least control both with one keyboard and mouse and also seamlessly drag and drop files and copy links between both computers is Synergy: https://symless.com/synergy Maybe that helps in case you don't find a better solution.
