If it's not on this comprehensive Tom's PSU list, I wouldn't even consider subjecting my parts to it:

The evo labs unit is not there. It hasn't been reviewed on any of the big review sites. I wouldn't even consider it.

Which Corsair model is it? HX? AX? Either way, between the two, the Corsair is the only one I'd choose.

A modular CX?

That is not a modular model.

I do trust the manufacturer, Channel Well. They made my TX950. A very solid power supply.

Corsair has the CX line and the CXM line which is modular. The CX line uses cheap Chinese made capacitors and are generally not a great recommendation for higher powered gaming builds as those capacitors are known to fail when stressed. The CXM line uses much higher quality Japanese capacitors and is much better overall. CWT is the OEM for both lines.

I bought this power supply on Ebay, and installed it today. It is pretty heavy, although slightly lighter, then my old cooler master 620w one. Company promises 80+ efficiency, so it shouldn't be just another power drainer.
Supply build quality looks about 7/10, installation is easy, cables are pretty much standard. It has 4 pcie 8 pin plugs, that are made of 2 pin and 6 pin connectors.

I have to say, the supply is not that bad.
