Forget about that Cooler Master, it's low quality. The Corsair is far better.

Corsair for sure. Cooler Master's can't always do their rated wattage, and the Corsair would be more efficient and quiet. Well worth the money!

By Corsair standards only. Nothing like Cooler Master's Extreme Power Plus units.
