  1. I would give the Corsair +1 for its 7 years warranty...
    But in terms of performance both are very similar...
    Check for combos,...go with the one that has a good one...
  2. I would go with the XFX Black Edition 850W since it is manufactured by Seasonic.

    The Corsair HX850 850W is manufactured by CWT who has a very good reputation for build high quality PSUs. But they are nowhere near Seasonic.
  3. I thought all these power supplies were made in conjucntion with seasonic and based of seasonic products?
  4. Corsair started with Seasonic, but Channelwell makes their PSUs now. I agree that both are good and to just buy the cheaper one. No point in spending the money if you don't have to.
  5. well if you decide to go with a corsair and have the money i would suggest going with the CORSAIR Professional Series AX850 850W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply its based off of the seasonic new x-series 850
  6. You should have made it a poll.
