    Let us imagine that everyone has gone to ATX12VO. How is the 5V for standby and SATA generated? USB3/3.1, for that matter?

    Does he really need 750 watts? You could power what is left of Detroit with a 750W PSU.

    He has an in at the local MC. He chose the Fractal Design Define R6 for a case (I have a Fractal Design Define R5;it is a good case) and a Corsair RM850 for a PSU.

    I appreciate the additional info. One thing I did not mention was that in addition to the i7 9700 and the 2070, he has a 4-disk RAID with 4x2GB WD spinners.

    I can ask him about on-line, but he likes to deal with people. He likes the people at both places.

    What was it about the CX750M that "fried" two motherboards? That PSU is cheap, but it still functions within ATX specs, no? And if not, then it is within the warranty period, yes?

    100 Amps is a lot of current. It is surprising that a card would draw so much, especially because the wires and connectors are not rated -- even in extremis -- to carry so much current.
