You can take care of that with smart wire management
The whole point for modular psu is for better wire management. Also i don't get your point of putting down what i said "i" would get?

^ I said I would get one...Basically i was implying that IMO it is a good idea by my to get a modular psu. They can be found for very good deals... better wire management, generally easier to use...for about the same price with a little less performance. Basically what you said was there is no need to get one and that they are not good...which is untrue in my experience.

I recommended a friend to get a modular Silverstone, since his case is incredibly small. Worked out really well

You took that the wrong way, that's not how i meant it. I meant that i like Modular psu and was just putting in my 2 cents...Not like i was trying to convert you to a modular user. Acctually i wonder if i could do that to someone...but thinking im a god and not modular. Muaaaahahahahaha. Yes im nuts. Carry on.
