Default Which PSU please

Hello,
I have decided to go with Corsair PSU but i just cant decide between two models...
1. RM850i which is older but have great reviews and digital monitoring which i wouldnt mind at all :)
2. RM850x (2018) which is much newer but that doesnt have to mean better... right?

on Jonnyguru the RMi have a better score than new RMx...
Can you please help me decide which one to go with?

Thanks!

Both are excellent PSUs and you can't go wrong with either of them.

However, personally, I'd go with the 850i. I really like the monitoring.

would you choose the older model (RMi) even the newer one (RMx) have a lil better ripple? I mean... the monitoring feature is defo nice to have but quality is more important ofc

Alright... I have just noticed that newest HX series is quite new...
Would you choose HX over RMi?
Thanks!

Looks like there might be a new Corsair titanium by Seasonic on its way based on new Cybenetics certification which looks very promissing... the AX850
so i might hold on for a month or two... :)

Thanks anyway

Hey there, all the ones you've looked at are great PSUs. RMi and RMx are similar with the different being the monitoring via iCUE with HX being a step up and AX moreso.
