    So, I'm building my PC gradually (only have a RAM for now), and although my first build won't be really hungry for power, I'm going to upgrade it in the future and I want to keep my PSU while upgrading my CPU and GPU.

    What I learned so far is that all better (VRM-wise) motherboards have 2 power connectors for CPU - 8pin and 4pin, and PSUs start to have that additional 4pin connector only from 750W or even 850W (weird Corsair RMi).

    I want my PSU to be able to handle a Ryzen 3950X...
