Cooler master or Silverstone Power Supply??

I've come down to these two power supplies due to my budget.
SILVERSTONE STRIDER ESSENTIAL ST40F-ES 400W
Cooler Master MasterWatt Lite 400W

Many people say silverstone is more reliable in their reviews but I couldn't find reviews of MasterWatt lite series.
master watt lite has erp2013 certification, what does that mean??
and my specs are
Intel core i 3 7100
Asus B250G strix
8GB Gskil DDR4 @ 2400MHz
Asus strix nVidia GTX 1050 ti OC edition

and I will be doing a little bit of gaming btw.

Still a nod to the Coolermaster.

Reason: more amperes on the rails.

One has 25A, the other 30A. One is better spec wise. I will give the Coolermaster my third nod.

I bought the cooler master one and because of the 30A on 12v rail I can use a VGA that has a recommendation of 450W psu.THANKS!!

That's not good.

You don't have much CPU in this one, don't hamper it further.

(NT) can u expalin it a little??

Sure.

In reply to: can u expalin it a little??

The short little explainer is you are cutting the bandwidth to both CPU and GPU by 10 or maybe more per cent. Here the cost of a 2x4GB set and the 1x8GB stick is a dollar or two.

It's not a good place to skimp.
