I would say that in almost every aspect they are pretty much the same even though the PCP&C unit will be slightly louder.

so the legendary PC Power and cooling has meet its match...

I have read that the voltage is a little tighter on the PC Power.

I know you have done the tests. :) :)

I want 2 things
1. Not Modular
2. A Single FAT 12V rail.


Help me out :)

Thank you.

You're looking at two PSUs that meet your requirements. In the end, I would personally go with the one that is less expensive and doesn't come in red. That's just be though since I don't like the look of a red PSU. ;)

I'd go for the one that uses something bigger (and hopefully quieter) than an 80mm fan.

I would go with the Corsair. Buy from ncix.com & price match with bestdirect.ca.

If your budget fits you can take a look at Antec TP New 750. IMO is better than your both choices. If not stick with Corsair.

Either choice would be fine. I have one of each and they've both served me well. As far as the noise levels on the PCP&C goes, the 80mm fan might scare you away, but it's not overly loud IMO.
