Which one should i choose?

According to the forum's PSU tier list, both these items are B tier. So it's just a question of price and warranty since they have similar quality.

 

For $85 100W more... I'd go with the Cooler Master.

Feel free to mark my answer with the checkmark under the post. It'll help to reference this solution in the future if need be.

Since the CXM is semi modular, it will be easier to manage cable clutter. I'd take that one.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

I think I've seen your build in other posts. Budget ITX/MicroATX build, yes? Still, might help if you post the system specs for people to be able to give the best advice on which PSU to choose.

Either of those PSUs are fine. Since it's $10 cheaper, I'd probably just go with the CX450M. Or, better yet the CX550 is currently AUD$77 https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/FdRFf7/corsair-cx-2017-550w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-cp-9020121-na

Both the MasterWatt 550w and Corsair CX450M are semi modular...

You end up using most of the cables anyway. The modular cables for the CX450M are 1x PCIe cable (2 connectors), 1x SATA cable (4 connectors), 1x Peripheral cable (3 connectors + 1 Floppy). The only set of cables you might not use is the peripheral (molex) connectors. I think the Masterwatt has 2 SATA cables (3 connectors), so you could maybe get away with not using one of those to save on another cable.
The other advantage to modular PSUs besides cable management is the advantage of having custom cables. Though, that isn't really there either as both units are semi modular so the motherboard 24pin and CPU power cables are fixed. IMO not really worth spending $25+ on a set of custom PCIe cables if the motherboard/CPU cables are still going to be stock.
