    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.

    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).
