We asked our regular contacts to send us a model within the 550-650 watt range

I'm using i5-4570 + GTX770, no OC planned. Case is a Lian Li PC-V353 and saw that the Corsair RM650 fits. Any input about this PSU ?

The other option is to buy a new one and put the corsair one in a secondary pc / pc for kid /pc for a friend ect..

Your ears would be happy, your volts stable.
