No, the B1 is not a good PSU. The CXM is much better and its cheaper.

You sure? It has an average of 4.4 stars rating and many people say its reliable, because I want to be able to Overclock my CPU and GPU and am afraid that 550W may be too little

I'm 1000% sure. User reviews mean nothing when it comes to PSU's since they can not even do a remotely proper review.

The CXM is much better in every way.

550W is PLENTY .

You would be lucky to need more than 350W.

Yes, absolutely. 550 watts is fine, but the quality of the PSU is more important. Almost never trust user reviews. Look at JonnyGuru.
