    i would reccomend getting the cheaper supply
  2. Best answer
    The Corsar Builder Series CX500 is a good value-oriented PSU. The S12II-520 is a phenomenal, top-tier PSU with two more years of warranty and outstanding power...it is - hands-down - the better qualiy PSU between the two.

    That being said, the Corsair is less expensive and a decent quality PSU. I wold't have an ssue recommending either PSU depending on the circumstances. If it were my money and I could afford the S12II-520 then that is the route I would go. I have the modular version of that PSU and it's awesome.
  3. Top-tier? I would only describe the S12II/M12II Bronze series as top-tier in comparison to the CX series.
  4. it's not top teir so much, but jonnyguru's sample surpassed it's 80+ bronze rating which is pretty sweet... either way they are both good supplies
