Well the corsair is a platinum PSU meaning its more efficient so that one would be better from a efficiency point.
You are loosing 100W though so thats a negative.

wattage is a thumbsuck :p

1080 : 160w
1070ti : 120w
1060 : 100w
1050Ti : 80w

System power : 150w
Total : 710w

So on the 1200w, that would give you room for a few more GPU's. I try not to run a psu at more that 85% load 24/7 so that leaves about 300w left for more GPU's on the Corsair and 375w on the EVGA.

Personally i have the both, a EVGA 1000w and a few corsair 1000w 'i' models, which are great to be able to see and manage input, output and efficiency of the PSU's.

The AX1200 have a mixed track record with some of them dying after a few years so unless you feel like taking the risk dont buy a used PSU
