Efficiency:
@220V input(N.Z.):
Corsair 650TX: 82% Min, 83.7% full load + 5-year warranty
Antec TP-650: Min not specified, 82% full load + 5-year warranty

@110V input(U.S.):
Corsair 650TX: 81.2% Min, 81% full load + 5-year warranty
Antec TP-650: Min not specified, 82% full load + 5-year warranty


@220V input:
Hence, I will get Corsair if their prices are very similar. Antec would be my choice if TP-650 is significantly cheaper.

If you are an American:
Since Antec is an American company, get TP-650 if the price difference is minimal. Everyone should support the merchandises from their mother country.

That's what I do. If the quality and price of 2 products are similar, I always get the one made in my mother country. :)

Both PSUs will be fine

But I am leaning on the Corsair for 110V

I'll vote another for the Corsair, but either are great choices here.

The Antec due to it's 2x6 pin and 2x6+2 pin connectors. It's also $5 less on newegg not counting Corsairs constant use of rebates. Corsair only has 2x 6+2 connectors

By that logic, Corsair is the equal choice as it too is an American company.

I'd find a trusted review site such as JonnyGURU or [H]OCP that does thorough PSU reviews and go by that.

You are right! I thought Corsair is a Korean company.
