Rated 4 out of 5 by Yamcha Great PSU but at a Cost
The RM550x is a great PSU, the build quality is excellent as you would expect from a corsair product and it has been completely silent since using it.
I bought this as a PSU for a PC Build for my Son for Xmas
I would recommend this if you are building a quality based system that you expect to last a good long while as it is an expensive option.
I have it happily running 6 HDD's, 16GB Ram, Skylake I5 and a GTX960 and there is still plenty of room to make system changes without going over the power capabilities such as a more power hungry GPU etc.
It doesn't have a large amount of power module slots but that's to be expected for a 550W PSU being modular it does mean that it was easier to cable manage the PSU than one that isn't but it's not really a selling feature as it would be on a larger PSU that you would be adding lots of system options to.
