    CPU/Mobo Should I upgrade from Phenom II X4 955 BE

    Haven't come across any major issues when using the CPU.Not sure about the onboard graphics card. Also since you would be using a dedicated GPU, how does it matter ? As far as CPU performance goes, it is very very strong.

    CPU/Mobo Should I upgrade from Phenom II X4 955 BE

    Overclocking non K CPUs with special BIOS has it's fair share of disadvantages. You should mention that too. Although overclocking Skylake non K CPUs is possible, it comes with caveats.

    CPU/Mobo Z170 - Gigabyte or Asus - Which has better durability and Support ?

    I have carried Motherboard with me, didn't face any issue. Had got the Asrock Z87 Fatal1ty Pro. Worked pretty well for 3 years.

    Budget 90k+ Building A Beast (Mainly for Heavy Gaming and Recording, Video Editing/rendering Short Films)

    GTX 970 has more CUDA cores compared to GTX 1060. Technically speaking, the 1060 is a successor to the 960 and not 970. 1070 would be the successor of the 970. CUDA cores matter in professional apps. I would stick with 970 if work is priority.

    CPU/Mobo Z170 - Gigabyte or Asus - Which has better durability and Support ?

    I wouldn't say that for a Motherboard though. CPU and to some extent RAM is fine. I personally would prefer purchasing a Motherboard locally. As for the original question, Asus and Gigabyte both make good quality boards. Choose whichever you prefer/ like more.

    OC & Modding Liquid cooling advice for 2x R9 280X

    Couldn't agree more. If you want to use a Universal Block then better get VRM heatsinks seperately and then stick em up with thermal pad and have a high cfm fan blowing air over them all the time if you want to see the card alive for a longer period of time.
