I am owning a Medion ERAZER ENGINEER P10 (MD34911) but the manual that comes with it does not mention anything about the internals of the PC.
As i will be a second RTX 3070-card to my PC, i need to know the following:
1. What is the name of the PSU, and how many Watt is it classified for?
2. How many PCI-E cable ports does the PSU have? Does it have enough ports to be able to add another RTX 3070-card? (this one is a GIGABYTE RTX 3070)
3. What is the name of the motherboard, and how many PCI-E x 16 slots does it have?
Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your reply, however i am not sure that you provided the correct specifications.
I opened up the side of the Medion ERAZER ENGINEER P10 (MD34911) and i see that it is powered by a INWIN B55E 550W PSU, not a 650W PSU.
I was hoping to see some unused 6-pin PCI-e power cables, however there was none.
All i could see was one pair of unused SATA-cables, as well as one pair of unused MOLEX cables.
As i want to connect the PSU to a secondary GPU (GIGABYTE RTX 3070) thru a riser, it probably wont be sufficient to use the SATA cables, as they only provide around 54W, while the PCI-E riser draw around 75W.
However the MOLEX cables might be useful, but i am unsure how much power the MOLEX cables which has been attached to the PSU in the Medion ERAZER ENGINEER P10 (MD34911) what effect they have. Molex cables can draw different effect depending on the PSU they are connected to.
Normally one should probably connect a RTX 3070-card thru a 6-pin PCI-e Power cable which draws 75 W, but i see in this case that it is not an option.
Altho the GPU for which the computer came with has 2 6-pin+2-pin PCI-e Power cables, i cant any more of these available to connect to the PSU.
You tihnk it would be safe to connect the riser card to the unused MOLEX cables for the secondary GPU?
I could overclockl both of the RTX 3070 GPU:s so that they both use around 125W, that would be 125+125+around 100 for the rest of the PC which equals to 350W for a PSU which can take 500. Using the 80% rule the amount of wattage to be put on the PSU limit would then be 400W.

Here is the 550W PSU installed in the PC:
The unused MOLEX cables connected from the PSU:
The riser-card i am thinking of using.
This one has connection for both SATA,MOLEX and PCI 6-pin cable. SATA wouldnt work for RTX 3070-card as the SATA draws 54W and the 3070 75W. Perhaps MOLEX would work but it depends what V the PSU has.
The second GPU i want to install on the PC using the riser. As the PC only has 1 PCI-E X16 and 1 PCI-E x1, and the X16 is already in use with the primary GPU (ZOTAC RTX 3070) i have to use the riser to connect the PCI-E x1 to the PCI-E x16

Hmm ...MD34911 / MSN 10023716
according to the database it has a 650 watt power supply.
but how does it say: the manufacturer reserves the right to make technical changes.😎
it may have been changed and the data has not yet been entered.
we ask a moderator. hello @Andi, you can take a look ! Thank you

Didnt get any answer but i found it out myself now.
The PSU 550W is not able to mount a second RTX3070 GPU as the number of PCI 6-pin cables are not enough, so i had to buy a new PSU (Corsair 750W RBG) that had space for 4 GPU:s
Now, can one use Molex cables for GPU? One can use MOLEX to PCI 6-pin cables, butnot recommended. So better to just get a new PSU. Which is bad considering the motherboard can accept 2 GPUs (1x16-pin PCI-E & 1x1-pin PCI-E)
So please, close the thread, thank you for the help.
