What is a good super reliable fully modular PSU?

Time to build a new computer! Last build I did (9 or 10 years ago) I used a 1000w ULTRA PSU because it came highly recommended at the time by many people. After many years it crapped out on me so I bought a 750w ULTRA which is still in my computer. Since this new computer is for my work I want to be absolutely certain about everything I buy, plus it has been way too long since I looked into this stuff fully.

ULTRA seems to be no more as I can't find them anymore, so as the title says, what is a good super reliable and fully modular PSU? Probably no less than 650w.

I have been using a Corsair HX750i for years. Very happy with it. I just did a NEW build and even though the 750i was working fine I wanted to put a New one in so I did the HX850i and can use my 750 in another build. Very happy with these CORSAIR HX series Platinum Power Supplies. 10 year Warranty. Good customer support compared to some others.

Basing this entirely off Newegg ratings, it looks like their Gold series may be a better buy, but I don't see a difference between the two. Read below though as I might be going with a Seasonic.

I found their GX750 and it has a 5 "egg" rating with over 600 reviews, plus it is on Neweggs Black Friday sale for $100 so this may be the winner.

What's the difference between their gold and platinum? I'm not seeing a difference.

I typically stick with EVGA's rebrands. I like the finish, warranty, and US based customer support center.

I typically go overkill on my PSUs though. Not sure if its as important as it used to be with how things have changed, but you'd get better efficiency @ half use on a 1200W, in comparison to maxing out a 750p.

Thats not true the bigest OEM´s are Delta, FSP and CWT where Seasonic and Super Flower are tiny OEM´s and EVGA has broken up with Super Flower and moved to FSP which are worse
As for the Corsair HXi thats not worth buying it cost more than the RM/RMi/RMX/HX and its worse

The best option on the market right is Fractal Design Ion+ which is a High Power made unit
Slightly better than the Seasonic Focus and in the same price range

As for Ultra they are dead and gone and thank god for that as most of their units where made by Andyson or worse ShenZhen RuiSheng Yuan
