    Psu suggestions for upgrade

    Both the EVGA and Corsair have zero fan modes at low to medium loads. In terms of reliability, they are both great and you aren't pushing them to their limit by any means.

    Psu suggestions for upgrade

    Both are good power supplies. I would go with the Corsair because it has a 10 year full warranty while the EVGA only has 5. To me the 5 more years of warranty are worth the extra money.

    Different GPUs running together

    You can, but the only thing that I would be using them for is something like mining.

    iPhone 8 issue

    I agree that he should try resetting it and change any setting he can to get it working, however, I wouldn't do anything that could have even a slight risk of permanently damaging his phone. All my opinion, do whatever you feel best.

    iPhone 8 issue

    I haven't ever done it. But if it is something wrong with the phone (though I don't know what hardware issue it could be) then Apple will just give you a new iPhone 8 for free.

    iPhone 8 issue

    I would get with Apple and see if they will fix it for you or replace it. I would find that to be more worth it than doing it yourself because if Apple messes something up when reinstalling IOS, they will give you a brand new phone for free.

    That drive is a good one WD greens are good as well. But that one will work very well for desktop file storage!

    Water damage on Black Widow Chroma

    I mean it wont hurt to try I guess. If you can open parts of the keyboard then I would help it dry out and would also definitely give it 24 hours to dry before trying to use it.

    Water damage on Black Widow Chroma

    It might but I doubt it. Its all up to if there was a short when the water was poured on it and if any components inside got damaged.

    HDMI to VGA... need help 'bout this

    I have always had bad luck with those sort of adapters. They generally do something funky like that. you can try to use the adapter with a different monitor but Im thinking your adapter isnt working properly. I found one that I really like that is 20 bucks from Walmart and have bought several and all of them work flawlessly. https://www.walmart.com/ip/V7-CBLHDAV-1N-HDMI-TO-VGA-ADAPTER-CABL-WHT-LAPTOP-TO-VGA-PROJECTOR-LCD-TV/34937690

    Pc not working after i swapped my cpu

    The BIOS update should be on Lenovo's website. And unless your motherboard supports it (which i doubt), you will not be able to overclock your new CPU.

    Windows 10 Glitchy, Slow loading login screen. Fix?

    They have already tried updating windows and they are using an SSD to boot. So it wouldn't be either of those issues @Matty2048 and @AngusBrown unless his SSD is failing which wouldn't make sense because the rest of the boot up is working fine.

    Windows 10 Glitchy, Slow loading login screen. Fix?

    I would say that it could be something wrong with an update? How long has this been happening (did it just start all of the sudden). It could also be a lot running in the background during boot. I would go to the Startup tab in Task Manager and see if there is anything that you can disable. If that doesn't change anything, there could be tasks running to login, go to task scheduler and see if there is anything running at login, that could explain how the rest of the boot up process is working normally and the login screen is having issues.

    Soundcard bent?

    Yes, being bent is fine, as long as the capacitors are in contact with their contacts on the board, it will work.
