I'm not to fond of the Modular PSU's. Although they are pretty cool for modders... They do present a problem.
The fact is, modular plugs limit power by adding to electrical resistance. The voltage drop can be as much as would occur in 2 feet of standard wire. Worse yet, modular plugs utilize delicate pins that can easily loosen, corrode, and burn, creating the potential for a major system failure.
In system I just sold, I had a PCP&C Turbo-Cool 510w SLI PSU and I removed all of the wire sleeves that came with it. Then I put on all new UV Blue cable sleeving. It was kinda of a pain and took a few hours, but it looked great. Also, the sleeving that comes with the PCP&C PSU's is really, really stiff. It makes bending and wire management a real pain.
