Just curious, which one should I use, I'm imagining the x variant? 🤔

You imagined correctly, but both PSUs are very good units.

If money is a concern, buy the cheapest one.

The RM isn't terrible, but considering that it has some sub-par components, there are better units for a similar price

I don't believe RM does anything significantly better. Moreover, i wouldn't be surprised if RM 2019 adopts a similar performance path by lowering manufacturing/assembly/component cost (as with previous models) which would demand a more thorough comparison.

If similarly priced snatch RMX. Not sure if it's official, but between the 2 variants the X has maintained the more authoritative approach in raw performance and component quality.

If RM is notably affordable, head over to Johnnyguru, Tomshardware, etc and check if these units have been measured up with a more detailed analysis.

If your build power consumption is moderate per use and you're not pushing for raw performance (overclocking, day-long rendering/encoding rounds, etc) it wouldn't matter. Go the cheapest route.

FYI: RMx > TXm > RM 2019
