Compared to the second-gen RM850x, this PSU employs different FETs in its PFC converter and another boost diode. The combined capacity of its bulk caps is lower as well. We didn't spot any differences between its secondary side's major components and the RM850x's, though.
All in all, this platform utilizes a modern design. We like seeing a microcontroller handle the fan's speed profile, facilitating lower noise output.
The photos above illustrate the RM750x's major components, while the following video shows its internals.
