Been looking at these two for my new build

Silver Power SP-S650 650W PSU ATX 12V V2.3, 80 Plus Bronze, Standard, 4x 6+2pin PCIe, 6x SATA, 5x Molex

And

XFX ProSeries Core Edition 650W PSU ATX 12V V2.31, 80 Plus Bronze, Standard, 2x 6pin PCIe, 2x 6+2pin PCIe, 8x SATA

It has been difficult for me to find reviews, so I'm left to the forums.

Both PSU models are made by Seasonic based on Seasonic's S12II/M12II Bronze platform.

Both have the same maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 53 Amps.

Both have the same 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency.

The Silver Power SP-S650 has a 2 year warranty and the XFX ProSeries Core Edition 650W has a 5 year warranty.

I don't see any reputable reviews of the Silver Power SP-S650 since it's one of their new models.

Reputable reviews for the XFX ProSeries Core Edition 650W:
