    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.

    It now comes to me that the Corsair was Seasonic-built and that although 850W was as low as the PSU went, Seasonic made a lower-wattage one.

    And the whole bit about being able to boot up and run -- doesn't sound like a PSU issue.

    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.

    Be sure that if you get a Dark Rock, do NOT get a Dark Rock TF. I reviewed the TF and found the mount to be bad. I personally would opt for a Noctua NH-D15 or an NH-D14 with new fans.
