    Out of those choices there I would go with the modular Seasonic followed by the modular Corsair.

    Sea Sonic all the way man. Best OEM ever, modular of course.

    Is FSP Aurum any good? It is Gold rated. I have this PSU in a local store. Seasonic will be ordered from Manila.

    FSP's are very good quality too, I can't personally fault them.
    I recommend your check for a review on JohnnyGuru's site.

    Not all of them, but most of the high end Corsair's use Sea Sonic as an OEM.

    So if I go with FSP Aurum 600W Gold? This won't be a risky choice?

    I recommend the FSP AURUM S 600. I've got 2 of them and they do their work good. The hell of a good price and quality at 80+ Gold is all you need. I don't care if modular or not. 90 CHF here in switzerland. Included 4x PCIE.

    Thanks for the feedback. I am saving for a Aurum 600 watts. How many years have you been using these products?

    I am using FSP Aurum 500 about 3-4 years from now. Today I would buy the 600 one instead of the 500 because of the almost same price. I am also interested in the Aurum +92 Products that will come in europe soon. http://www.fsp-europe.com/aurum92plus_650.php

    Quick note- the Antec HCG-620 is a rebadged Seasonic S12 II 620. Great unit!

    Ran one for over a year crunching 24/7 before selling it to a fellow cruncher :)

    A platinum rated PSU will without a doubt have great internal components, if it didn't the PSU would not be able to reach those efficiency levels. I trust Corsair, Seasonic and Antec no question. With those two points pick the one you can afford and has the best warranty.
