Which new highend PSU ?

Needing an extra highend PSU and for Black Friday deal I've found EVGA Supernova G2 1600W and Corsair HX1200i to choose from. The EVGA is $61 more than the Corsair.
Which would be the more reliable one ?
Going to power Threadripper 2950x and a pair of GTX 1080Ti's.

In my main rig I still use my 10year old Thermaltake Toughpower 1500w (RU133), and I want something just as reliable

The HXi is not worth buying its way overpriced and the HX1200 is newer is just as good if not better for $35 less on newegg

The HXi is actually $5 cheaper than the HX from what I can find among retailers that have them on sale.

The HX has better ripple suppression while the HXi has a tiny bit better voltage regulation
I would take the HX and not the HXi since its newer

EVGA's currently having an incredible sale on their higher end PSUs. I just picked a 1600W T2 up myself. They're also now offering an additional (+2) two years of warranty coverage, for a total of 12 years (not noted in the following screen cap), which you get once you register it online:

If shipping to Denmarks wasn't so expensive I would have considered one

Yeah, sorry about that, just noted where you're located. Great deal for those here in the U.S. though.

They are both a good deal HX and G2. Can't find anything good cheaper, those two shops have some good deals for those PSUs, probably because normally they sell them way overpriced so now they want to get rid of unsold stock.
