Anything else and it's probably craptastic. PC Power & Cooling kind of went down hill after OCZ acquired them.

This only applies to mostly top end PSU's:

XFX, Corsair = Seasonic
Thermaltake Toughpower = Channel Well Technology
NZXT Hale90, KingWin Lazer = Super Flower

Lots of rebranding, none of these companies actually make their own PSU's. In other cases they get these PSU makers to create them a custom PSU for their specifications.
You can't "rank" OEMs. The concept itself is just totally flawed.

Superflower has only recently stepped up their game to the point of being able to compete with SeaSonic. Some of their older and lower-end platforms are pretty meh.

Corsair uses both SeaSonic and CWT
Thermaltake uses CWT, HEC, and FSP

The new Antec High Current Pro uses Delta Electronics. Haven't found many reviews of new PSU's that use Delta though. The Antec is rated very good, it got a Gold award from HardOCP.

Not flawed, all I have been seeing is Seasonic getting gold awards and top honors. CWT got honorable mentions with TT reviews with silver, and Super Flower barely having any of their PSU's available i.e. KingWin and NZXT only getting silver awards.

Your PSU is probably better unless he have an OCZ Gold series....the Golds are pretty good I think.

Yes but seasonic get gold because they are the market leader... doing it first, i mean if we reviewed a hale 90 3 years ago it would have been the best thing in the PSU world, but now we come to expect units to meet at least 80plus it kinda takes the edge off the impression. However it dosent mean its an inferior unit by any means.

If not Corsair by a long shot; then who are universally better than Corsair PSU?

But in this case you have the better unit.

Silverstone?

Silverstone/Enhance generally are great units. Still on balance, Silverstone do not make universally best PSU.

It's not a case of Corsair being bad or anything, it's just that *most* of their units are from old and outdated designs (i.e most of the older TX/HX series) which do not hold up to the current competition. As for their newer units, they have the usual Corsair price tag and so end up being poor choices.

Antec Neo ECO 400w > CX430.
M12II-520 > HX520.
M12II-620 > HX620.
Antec TPN-550 > VX550.
Antec TPN-650 > TX650.
XFX XXX 650W > HX650.
Antec TPN-750 > TX750.
XFX XXX 750 > HX750.
XFX XXX 850 > HX850/TX850.
Enermax Revolution 1050w > HX1000.
Antec HCP-1200 > Corsair AX1200.

Those are just off the top of my head.
