  1. If it's just your WiFi that's bad then you could buy a new access point like something from Ubiquiti
  2. Correct, I'm not sure what kit you have but just make sure it isn't an EPS 8 pin, The PCI one will fit very easily whereas the EPS one will not.
  3. The braided one equivalent will be just an 8 pin, That's a 6+2 which only exists so that power supply manufacturers can save money and cater for two different connectors with the same cable. Example from my computer:
  4. Those chips have very poor single core performance, Most games can't take advantage of more than 4-6 cores let alone dual sockets. You'll need a whole new platform though since all of that generation's xeons are pretty crap for anything other than workloads designed for them. Ryzen 3600 is my suggestion.
  5. Yes, Give it some airflow - that's way too hot for an SSD Electronics always last longer with less heat.
  6. Pretty much all motherboards with the same chipset use about the same amount of power, If you want the one that uses the least you should look for the one with the least features. (no lighting, no wifi, no 2.5/10gbit ports etc) Asrock B450m Pro 4 is generally one of the better cheap boards, MSI tomahawk if you want less shitty fan control
  7. Buy a new power supply, If your power supply doesn't have two 8 pins it probably doesn't have the rated output to power a card that needs them.
  8. Are people still having difficulty getting WUs? Neither of my boxes is able to get one.
  9. I use it exclusively as the access method for my folding/server box
  10. The chilled block had refrigerant running through it which has a much lower freezing point than Mineral Oil or Water. Sadly it's not possible because of that.
  11. I use a 27 inch monitor on my computer with a 34 inch TV next to me (so i have some sort of sense of scale), The 27 inch is more than big enough and unless you're sitting further away, The 32 inch will cause you neck problems in the long run. - Or at the very least you'll be having to move your head around to see the screen.
  12. Counter strike is CPU bottle necked, Your CPU is mid range at best. The 1070 should get about 180-200
