    Default PSU Suggestions

    Black friday let me upgrade a lot of my parts and I believe my PSU is sufficient, but I'd like to upgrade as it was a hand-me down and is over 5 years old I believe. I had a 750W CX750M power supply that burnt out after 3 years, but haven't had many issues with the 600W besides occasional crashing if I overclock over whats listed below, not sure if that is from unstable GPU or just not enough power, but I do occasionally crash when launching games or in the middle of playing them with an overclock setting on. I'm fine with corsair recommendations but I'd prefer to stay away from the cheaper quality PSU's like the CX series I currently own. I'd also like a fully modular power supply. Lastly, I am from Detroit, MI, I have access to a Microcenter really close by, and online shopping would preferably be Amazon or Newegg. I'd prefer to keep it under $130 if possible.
    Build with new parts will be:
    CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x
    GPU: MSI 2070 Super Ventus OC to a 120+ Core clock and 120+ Memory Clock Boost
    MOBO: ASUS prime x470-pro
    Current PSU: CX600M
    SSD's: Inland 120gb, Crucial P1 1TB M.2
    HDD's: 1TB Toshiba 7200rpm
    Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro M
    Fans: 3 anidees AI Tesseract 120mm with RGB controller

    If you don't believe I need to upgrade, please let me know as well, as I don't have great PSU knowledge and you guys are the pros!
    Thanks, Jake.

    Couldn't you have RMA'd the CXM? I thought even the green label, older CXM had a 3 year warranty...

    I took it back to microcenter than they told me I no longer had a warranty on it, so I gave to my brother in law to scrap it.

    Your warranty is with Corsair. Not Microcenter.

    Wasn't aware, they told me to just bring it back if it ever broke under warranty, either way its scrapped and it was 3ish years so I may not have been able to RMA it either way.

    After Black Friday, PSU prices turned to garbage again... so I'll recommend the Bitfenix Whisper M 450W
