seasonic makes psu's for corsair, so that very well may be the exact same psu

Not to be rude or anything but yes, I know that part. Besides the 7 and 5 year warranties are there any differences between cable lengths or what cables are hardwired?

Corsair HX650 (CP-9020030 / 75-001217) has the following cables (according to Corsair's website):
20+4pin, 1x EPS12V, 2x PCIe, 8x SATA, 8x 4pin peripheral
Corsair might have a pdf which states what the cable lengths are on this unit, but I personally don't trust that pdf because in the past I have found that their numbers do not agree with multiple reviews.

The Seasonic G-650 (SSR-650RM) has:
20+4pin 55cm, 2x ATX12V 55cm, 4x 6+2pin PCIe, 8x SATA, 5x 4pin peripheral

Wow, thanks for the info. Now both units have a temperature fan right? Like, they don't turn on until a certain temperature?

They both use a temperature controlled fan.

I don't think there is a fanless mode. I haven't been able to find any published info, from either Seasonic or Corsair, on the cooling fan profile for either model.

What info I was able to gather, based on reviews of the 550 Watt model, the fan starts off in low speed mode until the power draw reaches 50% when it is suppose to increase linearly to maximum fan speed when 100% power draw is reached.

Alright thanks for so much help. I think I will go for the HX since it has longer cables and longer warranty, or maybe Seasonic, they're basically the same.
