  1. Orientation doesn't matter. Just make sure the hoses at the radiator are above the pump.
  2. 6 years by itself is not really the issue since you can purchase power supplies that have 10 or 12 year warranties. With that said, the power supply is far out of warranty, and I would advise you to replace it.
  3. As stated, you can use a soft brush to wipe them off, or you can use canned air if you can get any, and you can also just use Q-tips as well.
  4. A decent power supply will ideally just shut off because of having overcurrent/overvoltage protection kicking in.
  5. A pillow you can buy from the LTT store. https://www.lttstore.com/products/cpu-pillow
  6. I tend to drink alcoholic beverages that are very tart as it helps to kind of hide the alcohol. I personally hate the taste and feeling of alcohol, and I definitely do not drink to the point of being drunk. Not only do I find it dumb, but I hate the feeling of being dizzy. Just isn't fun to me.
  7. I'm confused as to what you mean when you say that you accidentally touched the PCB of the motherboard. I mean, you have to in order to install it, no? You probably mean pins, not PCB. Either way, you're most likely totally fine. Honestly, when you go to build your PC, just occasionally touching a metal part of the case should be fine in order to fully discharge yourself. If you want to take full precaution, you can attach a wrist strap to your power supply, preferably unpainted metal if possible, with it plugged in(with a properly grounded outlet) and turned off, and use that to keep yourself
  8. Generally speaking, you can reuse coolers, but in your particular case, you cannot.
  9. Yes, you would be able to swap out the fans for others. Sometimes, people do swap out the stock fans for aftermarket ones that perform better.
  10. Honestly, my cards look like garbage after a while. I'm surprised my debit card chip still works. It looks like trash.
  11. Looks like you could use some motherboard for your chassis.
  12. Larger chassis types typically support various motherboard sizes. While I wouldn't necessarily consider it an issue, if you get a chassis that's way oversized for a motherboard, then it's probably a waste of money. Depends though. In this case, I would say it's fine. But you do have a bit of room for expansion in the future.
  13. I've never purchased any Razer product, and honestly, I have no intention of doing so ever.
  14. Personally, when I switched from Intel(Ivy Bridge) to AMD(Ryzen, I did not do any fresh install or reinstall any of my games. I just went into Windows 10 to see what would work or what wouldn't.
