    They are both in tier 1 and the EVGA is made by FSP. I would go with whichever is the least expensive when you purchase it. If prices are equal, I'd go with the semi-modular unit.

    Interesting. Thanks for that :D Will probably go for the FSP because it's fully modular.

    The only other difference is that the EVGA is semi-modular if that is a feature you would like to have.


    EDIT -- left out a word:(
    EDIT2 -- was right the first time:sarcastic:

    The FSP branded model is neither fully modular or semi-modular. All of the outputs are hardwired. Look at the pictures in your link. There are no modular output connectors on that PSU.

    The EVGA model is the better performing product.

  5. EVGA is better, aside from the cables being semi-modular, it was tested at 50C rated oper. temps and the PSU has an ECO mode (makes the 135mm fluid dynamic bearing fan spin only after 40% load).

    HydroX, on the other hand, is non-modular (all cables, even the cables you don't need, are attached to the frame), rated at only 40C oper. temps, and the 120mm double ball fan does not have a zero-rpm mode (it will constantly spin at ~750rpm producing 15dBA noise from 0% load to 60% load, and revs up linearly to ~1500rpm/~35dBA as it approaches full load).

    Thanks for that. I did a search for that PSU(prior to asking this question) and a newegg link was the first. I failed to see the X in that PSU's model.
