Hello so I am doing another build for my little cousin, he wants a gaming pc with an intel i5 10400 10th gen, an amd rx 6600 dual- dual fan 8gb and will have a micro ATX B560M motherboard, i know for the gpu they recommend a 500 watt power supply but with all the other parts, is a power supply of 550 bronze enough? overclocking on cpu will be done. please help
another question i have is i want to do some liquid cooling on my 1070 overclock, but i have no idea how to do that or how much it cost, i want to do it so i can get my temps lower on my gpu and get a bit better performance as too i feel like i'm starting to fall back on fps for most recent games, bought brand new 1070 back in 2019. any tips/ recommendation?
Greetings. What's the specific model of your video card (the rx 6600), a link to it or exact model would be great to help us determine the exact requirements.
Unforunately we do not sell any sort of water blocks for the 1070's at Micro Center. You might be able to find a place that still sells for that card, such as EKWB but with those cards being nearly 6 years old now it might be difficult to find. Keep in mind it would need to match the specific model of card you have.
this gpu is the they will be using, and oh so is there any other way i can get my gpu cooled to get a cooler temp and boost performance?
Yes a 550W supply should be fine.
As for the 1070 cooling, we wouldn't have any options for that at Micro Center. I would suggest to see if EWKB or another video card cooling source still would have coolers available for your specific model.
oh alright thank you, so for the pc I'm building for my cousin I have to ship it out a good distance, do guys have any foams or recommendations so i can ship out the pc to him without taking out any components and having him install it. so i can just send it prebuilt ready to use but also so the components safe ?
We do not really have materials like that, I would suggest to look over this computer shipping guide from FedEx. It should be helpful for computer shipping tips: https://www.fedex.com/en-us/shipping/how-to-ship-computers.html
i have another question so sorry for asking for so much help, so for my cousins build i forgot to buy him a motherboard that can connect to wifi, any i wanted to know, if he can't connect to his wifi with an Ethernet cable. do you guys have any good network cards that can connect to wifi wireless
Any PCIe wireless card would work fine for you. Stock would vary by your local Micro Center store. https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntt=PCI+wifi&Ntk=all&sortby=match&N=4294966871&myStore=true
So yesterday i bought a 650 watt gold plus bronze power supply for my pc build. and it doesn't fit, its too big.
the link above is the power supply i bought but it's too big for my Mid tower case, i told the worker the power supply was going to be for a mid tower, so if this powerspec doesn't fit, will any other power supplies fit? I'm not sure if there any that are a bit smaller that should fit. it would normally fit but at the bottom right of the case there's this 1 corner that is higher and it wont fit cause of that reason.
the case i'm trying to get a power supply for is a corsair 220T,
What do you mean by "one corner that is higher?" The 220T is much like the Define Mini - fitting normal ATX PSUs is entirely possible, but an absolute migraine. The unit you linked is 150mm deep, so should fit. But it will be very tight, just like the rest. You're probably catching on something.
I would recommend completely removing the 3.5" drive cage and trying again when you have more room to work.
