Corsair, it has a higher amperage in the 12v rails.

thanks for the input i did have a look at that and that is generally the determining factor as for the effiecency i found the cooler master to only be about 4 to 6 percent more efficient which is marginal. The corsair also runs cooler by about 5 degrees, is louder however.

Thanks for the input.

Im running a Gigabyte Odin 585 Watt PSU which i think i causing a power consumption issue with my GPU the GTX 460 so it is a replacement i am not looking for the quieter one im looking for the more reliable and most future proof model =)

Corsair, by all means. Although, the CM PSU seems to indicate that CoolerMaster is finally learning to sell pretty good PSU's.

It's not really 585 watts, that's the "peak" output.
Check your label, it's a 460 watt psu.
According to the specs it should be enough, but they're low quality units, Gigabyte should never have given them the Odin tag.

Another vote for the Corsair

Lol dont worry i already no this after i bought the thing 3 years ago its consistent Psu output was just under 500 watts its a pathetic thing and damn rite not sure what the OIN badge was put on for but ok! Sweet so we have 3 votes to Corsair this is becoming a pretty solid case thank you guys for all your input please know it is much appreciated!

The Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold series is their premium series so you would expect it to have some quality to it.

The problem is that their eXtreme Power Plus and Elite Power series hasn't had any improvement and is representative of the garbage that is still out there on the market.

eXtreme Power Plus and Elite Power series?

Are these series within the Cooler Master PSU series sorry for the ignorance =)

The Silent Pro M Series is the only other one I would even bother considering.

The Silent Pro M2 Series, which is the successor to the Silent Pro M Series 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified PSU's, is beginning to be introduced to the market. This new series consists of 80 PLUS SILVER Certified single +12V rail semi-modular PSU's. There's no history on which to base an opinion on this series yet.
