    Hey, it is around $20 AUD different (Corsair one cost more)
  3. I believe the Corsair is rated one tier higher (Don't know much about the RGB).
    The RGB has a few issues but nothing major.

    The Corsair is the better product but honestly I would go with the Thermaltake, take the $20 and go have a burger. Both will do well.
  4. Get neither, they're not good value in aus, and the Thermaltake isn't fantastic, although it is reasonably good.
    What's your budget?
    What specs are you running?
    Budget for the whole build?
  5. MSY have terrible prices. :P
    For $159 I believe you can get a G2 750w, or for less elsewhere you can get a good quality bronze 750w.
  6. wow, so many answers! thanks guys! anyways here is my specs:
    i7 6700
    msi Z170A-G45
    4*2 8 Super Luce DDR4
    gigabyte gtx 1060 6gb OC
    Corsair Carbine Spec-03
    samsung evo 750 120gb
    hybird 2tb hhsd
  7. You'll be fine with a CX450M or XFX TS 550w (they cost the same).
    However, I'd go with the CXM due to the semi modular design and the small space for cable management in the SPEC.

  10. Best answer
    CX450M is a improvement to the CX430M. You will be fine with the CX450M. However, If you really don't care about aesthetics or cable management, I'd go for the XFX TS 550w. Seasonic-made and has more juice. You sacrifice a bit of functionality, yes but it allows for some aggressive overclocking and allows you to upgrade to higher-spec GPUs.

    I'd only go for the CX450M if you want a clean build and less head-ache at the back of the case. But if you don't care, the XFX is a much better option. Having to swap PSUs down the road because of power limits is annoying IMO. You'd want to buy a PSU with some headroom that will be adequate for future upgrades.

    I spend with the impression that my investment will be worth while. If I get something I know is good enough atm but not good enough for something more powerful, I'm basically investing in a liability. Assuming the PSU makes it to the point in time where I decide to upgrade. Which the XFX PSU will.
  11. Ditto, if cable management isn't a problem the XFX TS 550w is much better.
