If you really need that much PSU, I'd probably go with EVGA

The warranties on both units are long 7 and 10 yrs. and extend beyond technologies.

Looking at the buyer reviews over at Newegg and Jonnyguru.com and the price differential ($259 and $309), I'd probably go with EVGA ($349/10yrs). Early on Corsair ($309/7yrs) seemed bullet proof but as time has gone by, it seems like their QC has declined.

Let us know which you choose and how it turns out.
