Just noticed that there are 2 listings for the Corsair HX850; What seems to be an older model - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu850hx And what seems to be a newer one - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-hx850
Initial research tells me that while the older is rated at silver (despite PC part pickers insistence that it is, in fact, gold) the new one is rated at gold. The newer one also apparently has a different cable design, I saw someone mention in another post that it was a flatter profile. I just wanted to know, is anyone aware of any other significant differences? It translates to significant savings in my region to go with the older one, but I'm not sure if what I've found is a savvy buy, or a potential trap. Would love to hear your input!
