I’m going to build a pc with gtx 1660, i5 9400f, 2x 8gb vengeance pro, Msi z390 A-Pro, H100i platinum, 2x LL120, 2x LL140, Corsair lighting node pro, Corsair carbide spec omega case. This is the first pc I’m building. I don’t know how much power supply I need and which one to choose.

A AIO and unlocked motherboard for a locked CPU...

Anyways a good quality 550W would be plenty for that build.

I really wouldn't recommend Intel at this point. 6 cores with no additional threads won't last long and with the 10th gen Intel's being on a different socket there is no upgrade path. With AMD the Ryzen 3600 performs pretty much identical to the i7-8700 for much less and AMD is coming out with the 4th gen CPU's which should work on existing B450 boards. I don't know your budget but I'd take this CPU/MB/RAM over your current choices easily.

Disregard the error message as the board ships with updated BIOS. Also you can swap the memory to RGB version if preferred. For a cooler a AIO would be a waste on the build but you could just go with a mid range aftermarket air cooler and just use a RGB fan but the stock cooler is sufficient.
