Soon I'll be starting on a new build with a Ryzen 7 3700x CPU and I've managed to order all of the parts needed except for the PSU due to the shortage and price gouging. I was looking at the Seasonic Focus series of power supplies but it doesn't look like they'll be in stock anytime soon for retail price. There seems to be a decent amount of Rosewill, Thermaltake, and EVGA power supplies available for decent prices but I'm not sure if Rosewill makes good ones and I've heard that EVGA is hit or miss with them. I'm looking for one in the 700-800 Watt range at 80+ Gold or better.

So, I was wondering what available power supply or brand in general is good in terms of performance, noise, temps, and reliability?

We use EVGA G series exclusively with our customers and my personal builds. Superflower and Seasonic platforms are good OEM options too.
Do not skimp on PSU it is the backbone of your system with a decent UPS.

We have had bad luck with Corsair products a PSU, a M.2 SSD and 3 keyboards failed. Only good note was the RMA process was fast and trouble free.

I've had a Corsair mouse fail on me and the firmware for it was sketchy after that. However, my H100 AIO cooler is still going strong. I might give their PSU a try.

I managed to get a CX650 right before they went back out of stock but was DOA. Their RMX series does get good reviews; do you think between an RM650X Gold or a Super Flower Leadex3 Gold 550W which is better, both around same price and in stock, or is there a better option in the around $100 range? I don't do any heavy gaming, is just a simple build: i3-10100, Asus Rog Strix B460...no gpu yet but won't be anything that'd use more power than an rx570 4gb. Just want a quiet reliable psu that's not likely to fail on me. Thanks.

Would you be able to RMA the CX650? That might be the easiest route to take.
