Default Corsair 620HX as good as

I know Corsair makes some great PS but I just noticed they have Modular one now, Do these compare to the others they have that are so great. Let me know what you think of this one because I'm close to ordering.

Thanks
Dauntae

I have a 520hx (modular one), and it's a highly recommended one around here.
