2)Antec Neo Eco 450C (80+ Bronze)

3)Antec Neo Power 500

4)Antec Neo Eco 400C 

5)Antec Earthwatts Green 380D (The Cheapest)

6)Corsair CX430(Green)

7)Corsair CX500M(Green)

------Some other brands------

8)Thermal take TR2 430w (Also the Cheapest)

9) Cooler Master Elite 460 (I think its soo bad to even mention here)

These are my only options.

one of these

So just read some reviews on newegg and many users were complaining of CX series being too risky and low quality.

These aforementioned PSU are both old versions (Like from 2012),

Just wanna ask Why not Antec?
