Which Power Supply is better, and why?

I've narrowed my psu choices down to these 2 top contenders. Both amazing, but i need assistance in the choice. My case is the phantom 530 if that helps. Please tell me why in detail you'd choose one or the other.

NZXT HALE 90-- http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/67-hale90-750w-power-supply

COOLER MASTER V 850-- http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/powersupply/enthusiast-v-series/v850.html

Both are similarly priced. I'm aware of the 100W power difference. My suggested power is 519 watts, so either is able. Thanks in advance, Daniel

They're both very similar. However, I would probably prefer the NZXT brand over Cooler Master. For the PSU, you want to make sure the manufacturer is reliable, and while I generally like Cooler Master (I'm typing on one of their keyboards right now), I don't know if I'd trust them with the component that powers the rest of my computer. Just my 2 cents.

If you want a PSU with the color scheme similar to the HALE, PC & Power Cooling is a great brand, known for top notch PSUs. Their 750W version is also $30 cheaper than the HALE. Personally I have one in my computer, and literally you can't hear the fan when you turn it on. One of my favorite components in my build.

Thanks for the input, i'll go with the nzxt. Your choice of psu is very nice, except that I cannot have the screw-in type of power connectors with this build due to some of my accessories. Thanks again for your time, and also I really like your build.
