Seasonic FOCUS PLUS Gold 650W vs Seasonic FOCUS Gold 650W

I'm currently piecing together a build that maxes out at about 550W, with no inclination to overclock.

I am considering using one of the Seasonic FOCUS PLUS Gold 650W or the Seasonic FOCUS Gold 650W, and I'm wondering if the difference between the two is worth the extra $10.

Both meet all my requirements, but I am having trouble finding independent review sites that have reviewed both of them so I can make a level comparison.

My priorities in comparing the two are:

1) stable power outputs when subject to fluctuating input. (not the best quality electrical power)

2) general resilience

3) build quality

4) noise

They are the same base unit I believe.

So the cables You need attached are hardwired on one versus having to take the extra few seconds to attach them Yourself.

Thanks! I don't particularly need full modularity versus the semi-modular, so that benefit is negligible.

The Plus has a hybrid fan switch and a longer warranty. I think the circuitry is the same or very nearly the same. And as Gilroar noted, the Plus is full modular while the non-Plus is semi.

Thanks. Extra years of warranty (at least, from someone as established as Seasonic) could definitely be a benefit. I'll have to look into the hybrid fan switch to see if that's worth it or not.
