Upgrade Time - A Few Changes About Reusing Components

Looks like it might be time for a system upgrade. Not so much because my rig is performing badly - I primarily play Destiny 2 and am happy with performance as is. However, my daughter, who uses my old gaming rig, is getting more heavily into content creation via Photoshop and such. I'm pretty sure that the old Core 2 Quad setup she's on is not the best for this. I guess if I were a super generous parent, I'd just upgrade her rig, but... you know, nothing wrong with hand me down stuff, right?

I currently have a 3770k setup that's been running at 4.9ghz for years on end with no issues. I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard and use an original Swiftech H220 cooler in a Silverstone Raven case all drive by a Silverstone ST1000-P. I want to keep the same case, as I love it, it fits where I need it to and I think that the 90 degree rotated design is still one of the best out there.

I've leaning towards a 9900k based system (Although I'm still open to the 9700k - feel free to convince me one way or the other) with a Gigabyte Designaire Z390 motherboard. Obviously, this means new RAM and I'd add an M2 drive as well for the OS.

My daughter's rig is a Q9550 based setup on a EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i motherboard in a Coolermaster Cosmos case with a Silverstone ST75F power supply.

So, here's my questions:

1) My current rig has all custom cabling and sleeving that I made. Can this be reused on the new motherboard? Have the PSU connectors changed between the 3rd Gen I7 and the 9th Gen I9? I have checked out some photos of the two motherboards and am not 100% sure about the 4pin connector on the newer board. I'm currently at work, but hopefully can try to make sure that there is a 4pin somewhere on my current motherboard. I'd really rather not have to make and sleeve new cables if it isn't needed.

2) I have an original H220 from Swiftech. Will this just need a cooling block adapter from Swiftech if I want to reuse it?

2a) If I went with a new Swiftech H240, are those able to be mounted on the bottom of the case?

3) Is my ST1000P power supply up to powering this new build? I'd drop one of my HDD's with the addition of an M2 drive as well as ditching optical drives, etc, so I think the new build might use less power than the current one.

And a couple of questions pertaining to my daughter's rig:

1) Will the ST75F PSU be up to the 3770k?

2) Her rig currently has a pair of 660 Ti video cards. What would be a good single card to replace them with in her machine? I'm thinking a 1060 with high VRAM due to what she uses it for. (She does game, but mostly stuff like The Isle, which I don't think is too system intensive)

Thanks in advance for any help with all the questions!

Your PSU is fine to keep. ATX and EPS and PCI-E connections are all the same. If you have custom replacement cables and upgrade your PSU, no, you need new ones. If you have custom extensions, yes, you can move them to a new PSU.

9700K makes more sense for most people. If all you do is game, get the 9700K. If you'll use HT, get the 9900K.

1060 6GB or RX 580 would be a good upgrade from SLI 660 Tis.

I ran a Silverstone SFX-L 500w just fine on much higher end hardware than you're planning on running on a 750w unit. Aside from being a bit excessive, the ST75F is fine for your daughters build.

Look on Swiftech's site for what mounts it'll work on, but 1155/1150/1151 are basically always interchangeable.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)

Thanks for the feedback Pook. After looking at the manuals for both motherboards, it does look like the Designaire has a 4pin 12v connector that my current mobo doesn't have. I'm sure I have open spots on my PSU, so will have to make one new cable. Still, it's way better than a whole set!
