This is true, modular power supplies do have slightly more resistence on the lines than do non-modular. Which means an increased likelyhood for flucturations on the voltages/amperages. BUT, its nothing to worry about so long as its not a cheap POS PSU.

Just ating the facts not saying he should not buy it but anything can happen even from reliable PSU manufacturers just like Asus can send out faulty motherboards :P.

Right, but, its LESS (How much is up to much debate) likely to happen with certain brands compared to others.

But I would go with Enermax or Corsair for modular!
