I'd take the Seasonic Prime GX 750, also it has a 12 year warranty.

The Corsair seems to have in-cable capacitors and a 10 year warranty.

You're spoiled for choice there, both are solid options and will be reliable. There are others who will voice an opinion, but In my professional experience both brands are top-tier and either one will provide a quality experience. So your real choices are: Price, features, appearance and design. Does one have more or better cable selection with it? Does it look good to you and will it fit in your system well?

Oh, and despite what some review sites might state, there is nothing wrong with in-line-in-cable capacitors. They serve a good function and have been proven reliable.

Both have a 10year warranty but the in cable capacitors and high ocp on the 5v and 3.3v rails with the Corsair scare me a little.
The seasonic's ripple suppression might be a good thing for poor electrical grids and the fact you can turn off passive operation might be good for hot countries but some of the cables a chunky.

I stand corrected the seasonic indeed has a 12 year warranty

From an electrical engineers point of view I would prefer my explosive parts inside a a separate metal box not laying about among my components.

Id go with the one that you can get the highest quality aftermarket cables, easiest,(i prefer cablemod) but that's just me :D
All things being equalish id go with the prime. The longer warranty is a bonus and i hate caps in cables. It never fails that one ends up being right where you need to bend a cable. Seasonic has never let me down (over many many units). Neither has Corsair but ive only used one of theirs.
If price is a factor just go with the corsair and save a few bucks.

What? Seriously, what the hell is that crap? Caps don't magically blow up. Their design excludes such a result in the context of in-line-in-cable applications. TPU is not a place for meritless fearmongering, knock it off.

@morapp90
Like I said, lots of opinions. There are no real advantages of one over the other. Pick the one you like and enjoy! Seasonic and Corsair both offer a quality product, you can't go wrong with either one.

Even so, there are still capacitors on the mother board and in power supply; one can replace the cables for ones without capacitors with little ill effect.

Nothing magically blows up, Capacitors explode due to over voltage and Afpc converters can only handle so much.

Say for example you live in a country (Cuba where op lives or Thailand where I live) and the power grid isn't so stable regular surges can happen luckily I have fitted my home with a SPD and shunt active filter but not everyone can afford or knows about such devices. Lightning strikes power line accidents and many other factors can cause over voltage and the grids here don't have the same safe guards. So sorry lex if you think it's fear mongering but please don't tell me it's meritless I do my research and would never spout junk I enjoy learning as much as possible.

Yes,is my case i live in Cuba here is very hot and humidity valor 85% or more and electric service is not stable

The seasonic's power filter sounds good but I would seriously consider getting a decent Ups as it would protect and filter your supply as well as allow you to shut down your system properly in any blackouts.

The only thing I disagree with in this is that not all brands have such top tier PSUs, The OP picked one model that is.

A UPS will definitely help in both places.

( uh what does SPD stand for here?)

I have a ups for my computer but as our home is full of inverters and electronics as well as a backup generator I decided a harmonic filter was needed.

( uh what does SPD stand for here?)
SPD is a surge protection device it's like one of the things you get in those little power stips but it fits inside your distribution board and actually works.

In that situation, I highly advise you get a UPS(Uninterruptible Power Supply) for your local power system. However, my original recommendation for the PSU is the same: Pick the one you like, enjoy!
