Recently upgraded my pc. New case and upgraded to a 750w Seasonic Focus gx gold rated , Zotac 3070Ti OC Trinity edition and a Ryzen 5 5600x paired with my old motherboard a B450 Aorus M with 2 ssd's 1 is m.2 ,Problem i have right now is when I try to play anything I start smelling burnt plastic and might suspect the GPU and m.2 being too close to each other and I was considering of buying new fans to help with the cooling, currently using 3 fans on the front part of the case. Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

You should've invested in a higher wattage PSU when going with the RTX3070Ti. It's very likely that the GPU might be the device producing the smell.

Make and model of your case?

Just a plain cheap case, its the YGT b708, here's a link for the case. https://windnetpc.com/p/ygt-b708-white-matx-case-only/

Should i go for an 850w instead?
