Corsair CS650M or EVGA Supernova 650 ?

Hi all, I'm currently in the process of choosing a power supply for the following build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/Qfw4P6

Right now I'm hesitating between those two PSUs:

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-120g10650xr

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cs650m

These units are within £5 of each other price-wise, so that's not too much of a concern but rather which would be best in terms of reliability/ease of building ?

I don't plan to overclock and any upgrades would be an ssd or extra ram so 650W seems plenty to me.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I bought the EVGA one for my build, and it is the better PSU. It has a whopping 10 year warranty, 80+Gold efficiency, is fully modular, and looks really nice. Another bonus is its efficiency lets it shut its fan off a lot during gaming without overheating.

Agreed. I'm with Lukus on this OP.

I don't rate the Corsair PSU's very highly, although EVGA and XFX are pretty solid without spending crazy money on a SeaSonic.

EVGA. Corsair's high end PSUs are good, but their mid-range and budget ones leave a bit to be desired. I have an EVGA and it is totally silent. The fan doesn't even spin unless it's under full load.

The supernova units are rock solid. Get that.
