Haven't heard of any of those brands. You definitely don't want to cheap out on a PSU.

If possible, I'd recommend avoiding all of those and getting something like an EVGA 500 W1 or another 80+ White or Bronze unit from a reputable manufacturer.

None of those sound good then.

Any chance for Corsair CX or Cooler Master MWE (v2 ideally)?

No they are not, they are unbranded Chinese ones, the labels are just for decoration.
At that brands you should go for 900W or higher so to get 650W from them.

Here's a tip, chose a PSU that is advertised as having the same wattage as the 12V rail alone. Lower quality PSU tend to be advertised as having the wattage combined from all rails.

All of those are garbage chinese brands for underdeveloped markets.
The only brand I've heard of is Gamemax, since I have 3 boxes full of their broken 80+bronze and 80+gold units. Architecturally they are fine, but the component quality is abysmal.
I'm not familiar with Indonesian PC parts market, but I'm sure that at bare minimum you can find something like Chieftec Proton or some other mediocrity. It may be a bit more expensive that that firehazard garbage, but at least it'll work and won't explode.
