The Cougar is a Series by HEC. Fitseries said it is built by Enermax and they make good stuff. Go with the one which has all the plugs you need and may need in the future.

Watt amount =! good powersupply. Check the +12V-line ratings and overall reliability and quality. In this case the Corsair is the obvious choice because of the great ratings and excellent OEM (Seasonic). A jonnyguru (one of the best PSU sites in the net) review: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=21

E: didn't know about the Enermax. They also make very good PSUs e.g. the Modu and Pro +82 series.

After looking at them, it's not junk.. I would rather go with the corsair one tho. Unless the HEC is a lot cheaper that is.

Its fine enough.

I'd go for the HEC if its cheaper then the Corsair.

But then I like buying cheap things XD

I have a cheap PSU that everyone thinks is junk, I'll guess I'll find out in a year when the warantee runs out! he he

Most of HEC's hardware is going to be fairly reliable. Some of the low-end stuff has bloated output numbers, but the mid-range and high-end stuff is pretty reliable. Consider the fact that they're an OEM, versus Corsair, who simply buys their hardware from other manufacturers and brands them. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as Corsair has quite the reputation on 90% of their units, but honestly I'd go with the HEC just because you're getting more power/functionality for your money.
