The RM750 is actually newer than those two and the same price.
CORSAIR RM Series RM750 750W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

Or you have the newer Seasonic 750 Gold.
SeaSonic SS-750KM3 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

The Seasonic has a 7 year warranty. Both PSUs have individual sleeve cable packs optional.

NICE I think I'll get the RM out of the 2 ATM with the $20 rebate, I DO like the Seasonic. Didn't have full modular checked off in my searches so those didn't come up. I'll blame it on searching with my phone lol yea that's it lol. I'll put the order in a little while and see if any other opinions or reasons come up to get one or the other out of the 2 you linked.

Take either, Seasonic was corsairs builder for the majority of Corsairs life.

Seasonic was only the beginning, then they went to basically all CWT besides the AXi line.

Well I just ordered the seasonic ss-750km3, One of the big selling points was the switch to turn on or off the fan mode for silent running. I keep seeing a LOT of complaints with different brands with that not turning on even when hot so if it has issues and does get hot I can just put it to normal, Minor quirk for me LOL But at least I good a good quality PS, Now I get to rerout all thos wires eek, On the plus side when I got my NZXT case they forgot to incluse all the rubber gromits and sent them to me AFTER it was all together and wires routed. This gives me the opportunity to actually put them in now LOL Maybe I'll actually get to put some pics in the wire management thread now.

Thanks for the feedback
Dauntae
