My favorite tweak to such today is

To drop the old HDD and put the money into the next size up SSD. I'm on a 512GB Samsung here and have plenty of space even after all the work and play apps.

Maybe check out the PSU

Isn't that a multi rail ?
I know you advise single rails ...

PSU looked to be a single rail.

While I have used dual rails the times we do it's usually rails over 20A and we check loads. For home builders I don't expect them to have the gear to check this.
