Default MicroATX Power Supply Upgrade - Need Advice!

So I bought a MicroATX form factor motherboard, case, and all the other parts for my system. It works beautifully, but it is really crammed in terms of the wiring so i decided to try and clean it up as much as possible to help with some (minor, very minor) heating issues with my hard drives. I am going to get rounded cables and also upgrade my power supply.

Now, to my question, are there any MicroATX modular power supplies out there? I Don't use a CD-ROM nor a floppy drive, so the power cords are rather useless and just take up room. I want to get one of the modular ones so I can eliminate as many power cords as possible. Any links/recommendations would be great.

Check out the Hiper modulars, I heard they're pretty good.

Looks good, but will it work in a MicroATX case? My problem is space limitations.
