I usualy feel corsair has better quality. ( I have not had antecs last more then 4-5 years in the past, maybe they got better)

 

also the corsair is a Single rail system (better for servering up drives).

 

And the corsair is cheaper.....

 

the only thing the corsair is missing of the two is EPS 12V (not important for desktop boards)

the 2% better Plus raiting is not enough to make me jump for joy.

For unRAID, a single rail is almost a requirement for a good PSU, so in this case the Corsair is a better option.  Multiple 12V rails means you only have part of wattage available for the hard drives, so the Antec could be considered a 250W (?) PSU for our purposes.
