    The Corsair is a bit higher quality and should deliver the better performance I think.

    If you care about efficiency, then ET550-G's 80 PLUS Gold efficiency should be an obvious choice over CX550's 80 PLUS Bronze.

    Quality-wise, I don't think ET550-G is at a disadvantage. It's got Japanese main capacitor with rest being Taiwanese brands.

    Silverstone should be better.

    But Bitfenix Formula is better than both...so...providing you can get the 450W model for about 60€...i see no point going for one of those units.

    I have been told that my fixation on ripple makes no sense: a computer is unaffected by ripple below spec. The same is true for voltage regulation, I suspect. Good enough is good enough. Chasing after perfection will eventually evolve into better PSU's, but for our systems good enough is good enough.
    CPU: Core i7 8700k, HT enabled, all 6 cores OC'd to 4.8GHz, Vcore = 1.24v
    Heatsink: Noctua NH-D15 with one NF-A15 1500 RPM PWM fan
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370X Aorus Gaming 7
    RAM: 4x16GB (64GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM 16-18-18-36@3200MHz, Vdimm = 1.35v
    GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 with 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X
    SSD1: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB TLC; SSD2: SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB 3-bit MLC

    The CX550 is actually 80PLUS Silver certified, it's only sold as 80PLUS Bronze.

    I'm not a fan of Su'scon (MF series), CapXon (GF and KF series), ChengX (GR series) and JunFu (WG series).
