  • Is 520w enough for this build? Is Seasonic a reliable PSU brand? Should I go with this psu or Corsair CX-550W 80+ Bronze (66,90) ?
  • Where do i connect this fan hub in this motherboard? Can i control different fans (3 RGB and 1 non-RGB) in the same hub? Will it interfere in something?
  • Since i'm not going to overclock is this a good mobo or should i get a better one? (Ik that the mobo dont affect in performance)
  • Is the wireless card recommended? is it good?
im new to building guys XD

Go with the CX. The Seasonic is based on an older, group regulated design, that while still a very good psu, does have a few issues with newer Intel and low power modes. The CX is a dc-dc design that doesn't have that issue.

Typically, RGB fans come with 2 wires, one for the RGB and one for fan. If purchasing an RGB hub, that'll be what you control, the RGB, not the actual fan speeds. The only things you must be aware of is the actual RGB connector on the fans must match the RGB hub connections and the voltage. Some RGB fans use 5v, some use 12v. RGB strips typically use 12v. Also be aware of what RGB you have. There's older RGB where the fans are a single controlled color that changes and ARGB (addressable) where multiple colors are available from a single fan.

Mobo is fine, there are ppl who are leary of budget mobo's, especially MSI.

Wireless is up to you, most gamers prefer hardwire direct to the mobo, but situations change.

So I solved the problem related to the rgb fans. Thanks for helping but is 550w enough for the entire build?
