I would have to say the COOLMAX in terms of performance and the thermaltake in terms of reliability because I have a thermaltake PSU myself and it works great and I’ve never had problems with it yet.
I don’t really know if COOLMAX can be trusted by myself but if you trust them go for it and get the COOLMAX.
