A thermaltake smart series, and what’s wrong with the board?

Mediocre VRMs

 

That power supply will get by, but I'd prefer to have something a little more resilient

Has nothing to do with that. Whatever you're doing is using the gpu.

A thermaltake smart series,

People should learn that there arent many good 500W and 600W psu's out there, but they still recommend 500/550W or 600/650W when they could just say 550/650W. I mean most of the time people buy that smart crap because they got told that 500W is plenty so they wont even look at 550W units.

Not really, it's very low-end PSU, not fit for anything more than APU system.
