Hey Guys, I am building my first pc and am stuck on whether to get a:

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M2 720Watts [...] 6817171067


CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650M 650W

I have considered a HX650 but I have noticed that they have problems with the fan.

I Prefer the TX as I know it is made by Seasonic and they have a great name but at the moment I am leaning more towards the Cooler Master as I love the quietness of it and it is 70Watts more.

The main things I want are reliability and quietness over anything else hence why I am leaning towards the cooler master.

If there are any other better power supplies for a little more or for the same price would you please let me know.

Thanks guys :)

It totally depends what computer hardware you are powering if you need the extra wattage

Links broken on the Coolermaster.

Hehe, reliability and Coolermaster dont go hand in hand when it comes to PSU's. Also just because it says silent in the name means nothing.

Heres a slighty cheaper PSU that is actually made by Seasonic (XFX are re-branded Seasonic units).
