    -Focus has longer warranty,
    -Focus is semi-fanless while Core is not,
    -Core uses cheaper components here and there, not sure how much of a practical difference it makes.

    idc about fanless fan and the warranty since im not going to use a psu for 10 years or even 7 years, My worry is what kind of cheap components they use ? because i asked a lot of people they just said the only difference is just the new features they added and the warranty.

    That's a lot of ignorant people, then. The Core has A LOT of cost down, right down to the single layer PCB.

    You already have it?

    Well... you could have done a lot worse. As long as it was a good value. I understand that quality computer parts are slim pickings in Jordan.

    As you can see i ordered the Seasonic focus gx one but i received CORE GX, i contacted them, and they apologized and said if i want a refund and it was website mistake, i was like nah since i know i wont get any better psu, but its solid unit [i guess] and still better than EVGA BQ 650w with the same price.

    You should get the difference refunded to you. There's a considerable price delta between Core and Focus.
