    Will This work out?

    Assuming it does, you'll probably bottleneck the GPU with that CPU.

    Power issues can cause input latency issues?

    When you upgraded your hardware, did you also upgrade your peripherals? If the same peripheral is causing issues across multiple machines, it very well just could be that. As for the power flickering issue, you could always to some research into buying an external battery(a power bank of sorts). Typically from what I have seen for consumer models, they usually give you roughly a 10 - 20 minute window after you lose power to save your work and prevent either the loss of data and the potential damage to your system(your system specs and power yield could possibly change how long this said battery will last after you lose power).
  3. I believe CAS correlates to the latency speed if I'm remember correctly. It is better to have similar CAS latency's I'd assume. Also make sure the voltages and timings are similar.
  4. In most cases if you want to add more RAM, you should make sure that the RAM is of the same manufacturer, and has the same speeds. Like the latency's and MHz for instance. The amount of RAM that you're adding doesn't matter a whole lot if you at least make sure that they are the same speeds. In the case that you added that 16GB 2400MHz RAM, it'd be recommended that you turn your 3000MHz sticks down otherwise you can get a whole mess of system errors.
  5. Are there certain types of games you are trying to stream?

    I disabled my GPU In device management

    Does your PC have onboard graphics? If so, you could just plug whatever display cable you are using into that port rather than into your GPU's. That might work.

    Graphics issues but can't determine what

    Could you elaborate on what you mean by PSU switch? I understand that you can turn on/off the main power but what do you mean by turning it on with a PSU switch?

    Graphics issues but can't determine what

    I doubt it would. Your PSU already doesn't consume necessarily all of it's wattage at all times. Most of the time you have to worry about how much power is able to flow through your PSU itself to your parts rather than the outlet to your PSU. Do you know your wattage for your PSU?

    It wouldn't hurt to check your thermals on the card? It could be getting too hot since you said it only happens while gaming. Also would be wise to make sure all of your drivers are up to date, especially your GPU drivers.

    Monitors won't sleep

    Did you change the sleep timer for each power mode? Like balanced, high performance, etc.?

    Oxidized heatsink recovery

    It is being operated in a really humid environment?

    Monitors won't sleep

    Have you tried going to power options in the control panel?

    gtx 1060 not working

    When I first got my GTX 1060 3GB, it did the same thing and I ended up having to RMA the GPU.

    New headset around $50 -$100?

    definitely would prefer the gaming oriented headphones

    Already, sounds good to me. Thanks for the recommendation!
