Which PSU would be better?
Which PSU would be more preferred out of the two, This would be for a Cooler Master HAF 912 case.
NZXT HALE82 HALE82-750-M 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Power Supply
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power
There both the same WATTS but the NZXT is modular. Modular is better IMO. But maybe the Corsair would be a better way to go.

This is the correct way of determining which PSU is better:
NZXT HALE82 HALE82-750-M 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Power Supply - $120
+3.3V@23A, +5V@25A, +12V@53A, -12V@0.5A, +5VSB@3.0A
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply - $105 ($95 after rebate)
Up to 85%
+3.3V@30A, +5V@30A, +12V@62A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@3.0A
CONCLUSION : as you can see, the CORSAIR 750w has higher EFFICIENCY and OUTPUT CAPACITY especially on the +12V RAIL which is 62AMPS while the NZXT has only 53AMPS on the+12V RAIL.
Thus the Corsair brand has better quality and is more heavy duty.
You see guys, having a modular PSU is nice, but it doesn't really improve the OVERALL capabilities of a PSU, it is good to have a modular type due to better airflow (if you are one of the few people who are incapable of proper cable managment) but having better efficiency and HIGH OUTPUT CAPACITY must come first when choosing the right PSU, being modular should just be an added BONUS, good to have but not necessary.

Modular is fantastic, but the NZXT is much worse quality-wise, only putting out 636W over the 12V line while the corsair psu puts out 744W.
Power (watts) = Voltage (volts) x Current (amps)
Just look at the specs for the 12V line and multiply it by the rated amperage: it'll tell you how much it actually supplies.

Corsair is the best but I would get the modular designed corsair. Nzxt makes good cases and fans but bad psu.

there is no damage in procuring a used one in basic terms make positive you recognize your gadget criteria. the CX430 is a good kind however it wont do you any good in the experience that your gadget desires a 600W means grant.
