I was looking for a decent modular PSU that could supply 600 watt clean power to my ryzen 5 rig. I've came across Sea sonic m12ii 620 evo+ but due to lack of supply it's no longer a option for me. Now I've noticed the Cooler Master MWE 650 80+ Gold is modular and almost in the same price range in here. VAT and taxes made my budget reduced and I would really appreciate some help here choosing the best option in the same price bracket. Can anyone help?

80+ Bronze, Gold, White, etc are just measurements of efficiency. 80+ efficiency does not directly relate to the quality of a PSU, although I would rule out non 80+ units and most 80+ white units as most are mediocre at best.

The newer Antec HCG models are very good, but there is a chance that it is an older model. Also, there are similar or better options.

For 6400 rupees the Antec EarthWatts Gold Pro 650w would be my suggestion. This is identical to a modern SeaSonic FOCUS Gold 650w.

If you want to save some money, the Corsair CX650 would be my suggestion for only 5200 rupees.

Look for Bitfenix Whisper Series, cost roughly the same and it's fully modular
Quality on par with cooler master or seasonic
Yeah googled it and there's no online stock available tho seems like a good option. However I will look in the local retails. But can anyone tell me why the MWE series is not a good option for me?

Also I found this psu from Antec that falls in the same price bracket-

It's 750 watt and I heard the High Current Gamer series is a pretty decent lineup. You can see these PSUs are also recommended here,


Although I don't know if the bronze or gold certifieds are 'very good'! If you have some insights then it will be really appreciated. ☺

Aye, I've heard about the 80+ myth. The two things bothered me about the HCG bronze series are the anonymity of the OEM and DBB fans. Your recommendations are really great. Though I would've gone for a fully modular psu, FOCUS platform is tempting indeed. Warranty's hefty enough also. So unless there's a fully modular psu available on par with the performance and price , HCG 750w Gold is perfect for me. Thank you @NightHawkRMX and everyone for the insights. You guys are awesome!
