rm is made with more quality parts. and better design in order to archive higher efficiency.
if you have the choice for extra $40~50 dollar for a power supply with
longer life time, and better waveform. (10 year warranty vs cx's 5 year warranty)

it also has better voltage regulation, and due to the higher efficiency, produces less heat.

cx is okay for entry level gaming pc, 8400/1060 or 1070.
with your system, it better to use some better parts. especially it is used to power

Kingston SSD is already inside my current computer so I want to move it to a new one (I will use it for games I will play a lot).
Will 850W be enough? Also: Is my 650W not good enough to run this new PC? It is also inside my current computer.
I'm from Poland, so I'm still waiting for Aorus DDR4's.

If you are thinking of getting a m.2 drive, I would suggest a nvme based 960 or 970. Keep in mind that you have three data drive at the moment and you need to go over your manual to avoid m2 sata sharing lanes sata port.

Psu will work, but personally. If you got the budget, get a rm series instead of the cx series.

Everything should fit, and you should have no issues oc it to 4.7-4.8, anything higher requires a bit of luck and better cooling. It lags behinds the nh d15 by a fairly big margin.

Why rm? Why not cx? Is cx bad?
