Which one of these power supplies do you think are superior?

I had great experience with Corsair made by Channel Well, however for the TX550M they switched to Great Wall, and from the reviews it seems to have a high failure rate for a premium PSU. For Seasonic I had bad experiences with coil whines on their PSUs.

Let me know if there are good alternatives to these two.

I've used a couple Focus Plus's which is the original name for the GM-550, and had no issues with coil whine.

Thanks! I will give Seasonic another try, but I will get it from Amazon just in case.

The whine is also dependent on the type of hardware you have connected to it and the load. So that is a reason why some people get whine and some don't.
