Well, you can teach pinguin to flap wings, but it won't fly. I will trust CWT, when they get their designs and quality at least up to Enermax levels.
In Seasonic we trust. Enermax for non-critical machines (HTPC).
Also, I am not big fan of modular designs. Now I have a bag of wires to take care of, whereas it was inside my case before.

I trust the HX platform in that price range over any other PSU. I've built many folding rigs using that same PSU which all ran like champs for months on end.

I agree, Seasonic is in a league of its own - for Gold and Platinum PSUs. For Bronze, I'll stick to the Corsair HX series.

Corsair HX850 850W Review

Sorry mate but CWT is very good. The HX units are all really solidly built. I don't know why you wouldn't trust them.

Sure, everyone builds a crap PSU (Seasonic as well) but for the most part there units are very solid.

And to be honest, Seasonic has a lot to worry about with Flextronics and Superflower.

I just wanted to thank you all for helping me out, I ended up taking most of your suggestions. Still looking at monitors, but I want to make sure I'm well informed first.
