I'd choose the Corsair CX700 mainly due to reviews such as this one by Gabriel Torres of HardwareSecrets http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Corsair-GS700-Br... (linked to conclusion page)

Basically the answer you're being given is, "it's your choice, you shouldn't go wrong with either one" I feel the Corsair may be a tad bit better (personal thing) but I will ask, why the 'upgrade' to a 700W rather than a 750W which has a little more versatility?

...does a 750w make you breakfast as compared to a 700w unit?

they are rather close in performance (i assume you mean the corsair GS 700 v2 & CM silent pro M2) and even in parts, both use matsushita (aka panasonic) for main caps. with equal performance and quality, the #1 consideration for me on these two units (ive built with the corsair GS before and its a fine PSU) would be price and the second would be warranty.

cooler master offers a 5 year warranty on the M2 (according to their web site)
corsairs still only offers 3 years on the GS line although they are known for good customer support for north america

they both would handle your SLI/CF set up the same

if you like the multi-colored fan on the corsair get it
if you want the longer warranty, get the cooler master
if you don't really care, get the cheaper of the two

personally, I would have slightly more faith in the channel well platform used in the corsair then the cooler master M2 (i believe it's made by enhance) but would have no problem placing either in one of my PCs.

the AX850 is a better PSU then either the GS700 or M2 720

Well, i would go for the CM if that's the case, CM Silent Pro M2 has modular cables which keeps the case cleaner and less cluttered. Corsair has a nice fancy fan but less functionality.
