    I don't get why people are still considering the ancient S12II-Bronze after almost 10 years without real changes on the electronics...
    Only people who got blinded by capacitors, the Label but otherwise are not very involved in PSU stuff...

    Buttom Line is:
    two of them regulate 5V independantly from the 12V, have OCP on at least minor rails and OTP. One of those does not. (hint its the Seasonic).

    So that makes it pretty clear wich one of the three NOT to get.

    As said, there are other sources that are cheaper for the be quiet, that would be my choice.
    Both Corsair and be quiet are independantly regulated, electrically fine and nothing wrong with it.
    THe only negative thing about the CX450: only one PCIe Connector and a bit on the louder side.

    Think about the Warranty!
    When getting something off of eBay its often without any manufacturers Warranty. Not recommended at all.

    I'd stay away from it.

    Used Games for Consoles, yeah, why not. But PSU? Nope.
    The price advantage isn't big enough to overcome the lack of Warranty. Things where you don't have Warranty anyway, that are cheaper, different story.
