Which of these 2 would you choose?
Looking to order tonight/tomorrow.

Have had the Seasonic under consideration for a long time but just wondering if the OCZ would be the better choice.

How about the Seasonic M12 600?

Seasonic are best for their low noise levels so if thats a requirement then thats what you should choose.

OCZ - very quiet (I own a 700W one) and extremely efficient. OCZ powerswap warranty - new for old, no quibble for 3 years. Excellent support on XS forums.

Both with 120mm fans. Similar: build quality, 12v current, efficiency (a little better with the OCZ@83% vs S12@80%) and PFC rating. Apart from the £12 difference in favour of the OCZ, the only thing to tip it for the OCZ is the 4 rails, an advantage with high loads.

Think I'll go with the OCZ right now and try one of the new Seasonics when I upgrade the next one.

Current power supply collection=

3 x Trueblue 480's.....sans PCI-express connectors.
1 x Seasonic S12-430.....very happy with it but it's on a lightly loaded rig anyway.
