Wrong on both counts. I don't know where you got that notion.

cleaner physically, the corsair has fewer cables that are not modular. and I would assume that if it is cheaper it is probably lower quality in some way, however corsair has a good name so they could be using that for a markup.

There's a certain saying about assumptions that is quite accurate in this particular instance.

yes, I know assumptions are a bad idea, which is why I found reviews of each as soon as I posted that.

corsair HX850W

Seasonic M12D 850W

according to that, they are both really good but the corsair still wins in efficiency and how little electrical noise it makes. and as I said before it has fewer fixed cables, the corsair has 4 while the seasonic has 7 that I could count.

The Seasonic that Wolf reviewed was actually an old revision with a few design flaws. The current model has better ripple suppression and I believe better efficiency as well. This review is more representative of the performance you'd get from it: XFX 850W Black Edition Review
