I am looking for replacing my current PSU as it is from a non trusted brand and I am thinking of getting the Corsair RM650i 80+ Gold. Is it a good choicr for my build? And is the fan quite?

MSI MPG x570 Gaming Plus
Ryzen 7 3700x
Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super Gaming OC (Overclocked with Afterburner curve)
Gigabyte 2x8GB DDR4 2666Mhz
2x1TB SSD SATA
1TB HDD
Aerocool Lux 750w 80+ Bronze

Will second @maxamillionfeettall regarding the Corsair unit.

Especially in light of limited choices.

However another factor to also consider is that the Corsair has the higher wattage (850 watts).

Leave room for future growth and expansion on your system.

Another suggestion: Go to the manufacturer's websites and read the applicable PSU User Guides and Manuals. Check FAQ's and Forums (if any).

You may discover another factor or two that influences your choice.

Look a bit beyond price before making the choice.

I am buying from a local store plus in my country Corsair and Cooler Master are the only known PSU brands available so I'm very limited in choice, I'm also thinking of:
Corsair RM850x 80PLUS Gold
Cooler Master V650 80Plus Gold
I don't know about the second one - Cooler Master's got a lot of crappy PSUs, but I don't know if the V650 is one of their few good ones.

The RM/RMx series from Corsair is an excellent model, though if you can get a 750 or 650 watt version, it should be cheaper.
