    [SOLVED] RX 6900 XT With Corsair CX750M Risks?

    Hey everyone, Yesterday I helped a friend pick out parts for a new build at Micro Center. We found some insane deals, notably a PowerColor RX 6900 XT Red Devil for $650 open box.

    So I have Masterbox TD500, yes there are better cases, but i have what I have.
