Depending on your case design too the PCP&C unit may be a better choice because of the rear fan....

The Corsair should be fine. My Case is the Original Antec P180 so the PS mount is raised up with a hole for the bottom mount fan type.

Nothing but good things to say about the PC Power & Cooling 750. I don't see how the Corsair could possibly be quieter because the PC is practically silent enough that it's hard to tell if it's running. When I was choosing a PSU last year I narrowed it down to these two and found that this one was generally considered to be better quality at high loads than the Corsair but that was then and I'd go with whichever is cheaper at this point.

'Cept it's got 4 +12v Rails. Anyway, I recommend getting the TX750w, Fantastic Power Supply, I find you cant really beat corsair on the quality of the power supply's, and they're made by seasonic, so, that's also a plus. Also, that's what all the cool kids are doing these days.

Just buy the cheaper between the two (be sure to use PriceCanada.com and get the lowest price for both, then pricematch at NCIX.com). They are both extremely good PSUs and meet what you want in a PSU so you will be very happy with either. I personally own the PCP&C Silencer 750W and I find it quiet, but they will both suit your needs just fine.

Not all of them. TX750 is a CWT PSH.
TP New is a Seasonic...
