Corsair RM650x or SeaSonic FOCUS Plus 650 Gold?

Corsair: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/Rp8H99/corsair-power-supply-cp9020091na

SeaSonic: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/WrNypg/seasonic-focus-plus-gold-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-650fx

The Corsair unit seems to be extreme in the Amazon reviews, it's either five star or blew up within months. The SeaSonic doesn't have as many reviews but what there are seem positive.

Which should I go for?

Both are actually quality PSU (quality components) ... if I had to pick one, I would pick the Seasonic.

EVGA Supernoa 650 G3 and G2 are good too ... but right now you can get Seasonic for better price.

I recently acquired the Seasonic Focus Plus Platinum and these new units from Seasonic are amazing. Their size is really small, giving extra headroom for cable wiring in just about any case. The RMx from Corsair dont really have any issues either but I never used/owned one so I cannot comment.

I would go with the Seasonic Focus Plus. CWT has come a long way since they partnered with Corsair for many of their PSU lines, and many of their units have positive professional reviews. However, they are still not quite as reputable an OEM as Seasonic, FSP, Super Flower, etc.

Corsair even uses Seasonic as the OEM for their highest-end PSU line, the AX series.

Thanks for all the feedback. I think I'll go for the SeaSonic unit; this will be the first SeaSonic PSU I've owned. I'm looking forward to seeing how it does.
