    IIRC the reputation actually comes from a higher wattage model (850?) that uses a different fan.

    Due to certain reasons I had to postpone the purchase til around late December. However, that could allow me to maybe increase the budget a bit. So, is there any reason why I should consider a Seasonic PRIME 650W Gold (SSR-650GD) model?

    I mean, the power rating is overkill for sure but is it worth the extra 30% price increase compared to the RMx (which is my primary candidate at the moment) for build quality, components, noise, etc.?
    I'm assuming it isn't worth it, but asking just in case.

    Personally, if i was about to choose a PRIME unit, i would go only for its highest-end Titanium units.
    Otherwise, for a Gold unit i would also stick with the RMx units, which have the big advantage that besides the reviews, are tested throughout time as well , so it's a safe(r) bet !
