    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.

  4. 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. :)
  5. Both PSUs will be fine

    But I am leaning on the Corsair for 110V
  6. I'll vote another for the Corsair, but either are great choices here.
  7. 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.
