XFX TS 550W/650W ( never heard of this one, is it any decent? )
Seasonic M12II 620W
Corsair VS 550W/650W
Which of the above ones would you recommend?
Thanks again for the all the help.
The XFX TS is the XFX Core Edition with a new name its still the same old Seasonic S12IIB.
The Seasonic M12II is the best unit but its also very loud.
The Corsair VS is trash and by far the worst one.

So you're saying it's best to stick with the XFX out of all of those right? Considering that the 550W will probably be good enough?

The Seasonic M12II is the best one but its also loud, so you either have to live with the noise or get the second best option which is the XFX.

Looking up reviews for the XFX some reviews are saying that it's also loud. Can you confirm?
Also, I might be able to find the Seasonic m12ii 750W. Is that one loud as well? I'll be willing to pay the extra premium if it'll mean a quieter PC.

All of the M12II units are known for being loud.
Dont think i have heard many complain about the S12II at least not from what i can recall.

XFX XXX Pro 650W - any thoughts on this one? It looks decent, semi modular, etc. But according to some reviews the fan is a bit noisy ( this sucks, why is almost every PSU noisy in reviews O_O? ) and there is ripple on 3.3V and 5.0V. While other reviews say that the noise is extremely low and the ripple is okay and not to be worried about. Any ideas?
In the end, it's probably gonna be between one of those unless I find something locally ( I'll have to order one of those from the capital ) :
XFX Pro XXX edition 650W
Seasonic M12II 620W ( I'm in love with it but the noise is kind of a deal breaker )
Cooler Master G650M
Corsair VS650W
Would love any input. Thanks in advance.

The XFX XXX Pro is a Seasonic M12II rebrand so its the same as the M12II and just as loud.
The Cooler Master GM is okey but forget the Corsair VS its trash.

Are you sure that the XXX is rebranded M12? Because the XXX is actually semi modular where as the M12 is fully modular.
XFX 650W Core/TS editions - XFX 650W XTR - XFX 750W/850W XXX Edition - EVGA Super nova 650W - Thermal take 850W Evo blue 2.0
and last one which is pretty pricey but I'll consider it in case nothing else is quiet : XFX 850W Pro Black Edition.
Thanks again for all the help so far.

Yes its an M12II as the original M12II the XFX XXX Pro was based on was not fully modular it was semi modular.
All XFX models are Seasonic.

The Core Edition aka TS bronze is a Seasonic S12II, the Pro XXX is a Seasonic M12II and the XTR 550-650 is a Seasonic G and Pro Black Edition is a Seasonic KM3.

I think I might be settled on the XTR edition since it's fully modular and gold certified, but the noise still worries me a bit.
The difference between the XTR 650W and the 850W black edition is around 100 LE, which is like 13 I think I might just pay the extra premium and get the black edition.
