Although Coolermaster is slowly getting better, I still would not use there PSU units.

Get a Corsair.

That CM (IIRC) is a "co-developed" unit made by Enhance. Its a good PSU. BUT that Corsair....is VERY sweet (when possible....I use Corsair AX'ers in all my builds). Its a (IIRC) Seasonic built beast. I personally would pick the Corsair, but both are good kit. :)

YMMV

A lot of it now is Seventeam and other OEM makers. Enhance does there higher end stuff and normally is much better than what CM gets, but then again the OEM specs it to the Customer. Its why Silverstone Enhance = good, CM = Enhance = meh.

Corsair ala Seasonic except for the 1200ax which is a darn fine power supply.

Could just cut out the middleman and buy seasonic though.

Sometimes yes, but a lot of times there are more incentives to buy one of there OEM labeled ones instead. That, and doing an RMA with Seasonic Direct was not nearly as pleasent as other companies.

To boot they have some stiff competition comming too from CWT and Superflower. Which makes looking at other brands more lucritive.

I would have suggest the HALE series or Rosewill's if they were easier to get. Good units.
