I might be wrong but i dont think that most tech enthusiast care too much about building a Green PC...

Although its nice to know that they very efficient..., i own a Corsair PSU myself...
I'd say you're wrong, I personally strive to try and make all my machines as energy efficient as I possibly can. I don't increase voltage or leave my system on when it isn't needed. I guess a lot of people take electricity for granted.

Seasonics psu's are awesome too granted they manufacture both...but if you want more options look at the 'S' n 'M' lineups with the s being their standard psu and m being modular.

Corsair PSU's are awesome, I own one and it's been the best PSU ever. It's EXTREMELY quiet, incredibly efficient and I've NEVER had any stability problems. Ask any Corsair owner, and they'll tell you how satisfied they are with their PSU. :)
Agreed 100%

I :love: my Corsair power supplies. I have 2 vx450's, vx550, hx620...
