    I have the revolution 85+ 1050 and I would strongly recommend it. It is almost completely silent with my setup and I have had no issues with it so far. However the corsair is supposed to be an excellent PSU also so I am sure you will be happy with either one. I would say get whichever has a better deal...

    I have the Corsair and would 100% recommend that and if for one reason only considering they are rated as good as each other Warrenty, 7years Corsair v's 3 year Enermax, no competition.

    I was deciding between those 2 PSU's and leaning towards the Enermax until I read the reviews (jonnyguru.com) and saw the price on this:

    corsair on the left, enermax on the right



    my enermax crapped the bed on me while I was doing mods on it, so I went with the corsair which has more efficiency and better all around line stability

    HX850 is incredibly efficient, around 90% for us 230V folks. I recommend a fan swap tho, the stock fan makes annoying clicking sounds and is too loud in general for a silent build.
    Yate Loon D14-SL fits perfectly tho
