English and short answer the lower the ripple the more stable and clean your PSU is

A high ripple can damage or even outright kill parts

I'm going to pull the trigger on the AX860, if I get bad coil whine, then I'll go for EVGA.

Still think its overpriced for what you get but all the other non Corsair options are overpriced in the US which makes a lot of sense...not

Here in Denmark the Newton R3 is between the Corsair HX and the old AX in price making it a killer deal in the US its 150$ for the 600 watts Newton R3 which is a rippoff

Corsair knows how to market. Those sleeved cables are a deal breaker to me.

I do it for the looks.
My cable management skills aren't the best behind the motherboard tray.

The Corsair Gen 1 cables for the AX650/750/850/1200 are not that good i know as i have them myself

The Gen 2 cables on the other hand sould be much better

AX1200 stock Gen 1
