Hi
I was just wondering if the Corsair CX550M, 550w is compatible with the XFX RX 590 Fatboy. With compatibility I mean the cables from the psu to the gpu.
Some specs if needed:
MSI B450A Pro Max
Ryzen 5 2600
G.skill ripjaws V 3200 mhz
Seagate barracuda 2 tb
Kingston 120 gb SSD

There's the CX/CXm power supplies, and then there's the 2017 CX/CXm power supplies.

If yours isn't one of the later ones, I'd be wary of it.

The RX590 is a power-hungry GPU. That said, I think your total system draw wouldn't even hit 500W under sustained full load. Might be pushing things a little close, but the PSU should be able to handle it.

You can read up on more if you look at the first link in my sig.
