    The Corsair RM series is not their best line of PSUs, as the AX are their80PLUS Platinum certified, and their only platinum line of PSUs. When it comes down to PSUs, the certification is what you need to look at, and the price. Because in my experience, once you look at the top-shelvers that are 80PLUS - Platinum, 850, 950, 1050, 1200, etc. PSUs, the manufacturer has little impact on the quality. Whichever one has the better price will normally be the better option there. The RM series is still very reliable, as it is Gold certified and fully modular but I would still have to recommend the AX series over the RM series. And on matters of the case, I wouldn't really go with either, but of the two I would pick the NZXT. Both cases have fairly irregular surfaces, which is not optimal in case modding, and in my opinion normally looks helluva ugly when it isn't a case mod that you designed yourself. The NZXT has more regular surfaces though, and NZXT cases are pretty good quality.

    P.S about the fans.
    2x 140mm Blue led fans on front
    3x 140mm fans on top of case
    1x 140mm fan to replace rare 120mm fan that will put on the bottom as well as one from the top.

    since there is no side fan to maximize airflow lolz

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think Trident X is the G. Skill RAM made for 4th gen intel core processors.

    It means support for the platforms. And I would say neither PSU. If you plan on using multiple GPUs, you need around 1000w PSUs.

    Quite a marked differance in price for those two PSU's in what is perhaps the cheaper end of the market. I have been reading of late a few threads in here that suggest the Corsair units are not as good as people have been led to believe, few callbacks on some products etc.
    You say that it has had a lot of good reviews but i suggest you stand back and take a look at that - In here ... ROG Forum .... the knowledgeable people always seem say that Seasonic are the best and most reliable purchase you can make, and also say never to skimp money wise on your purchase when it comes to a PSU as it affects so much and a bad PSU can damage other expensive componants. In Amazon .... you have what are probably just general members of the public, with far less knowledge in all likelihood, making what they think is an educated purchase based on the name of the company, and maybe with some, a degree of reading involving general computer pages from the net and/or magazines.
    I wish that i had known of this site before i built my PC ... perhaps i would have used other componants myself armed with the knowledge of the experts here. I had better state btw that i use neither Corsair or Seasonic in my build having plumped for an expensive Thermaltake PSU that is top end of the range. I have since read that it is maybe not as good a PSU as i thought when purchasing it but i guess only time will tell.
    Good luck in your purchases, armed with the right advice i trust you will be very happy.

    Just to put things in perspective. I am provided (Sponsored) with my benching PSU's from Enermax. And I use their PSU's exclusively for my benching. However I would love to be sponsored by Seasonic.

    Now what does that tell you?
