Question: What is the point of "full 100% modular" for a "gaming" system when there's no way ya can build a system without:

24 Pin connector
8 pin EPS
1 SATA Cable
1 PCI-E 3.0 cable

OK, if not gaming ya don't need the PCI-E cable, so why wouild you refuse a great PSU that had the other 3 hard wired when a hard wired connection is superior to the "modular" One ? Read the article below:

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/power-supplies-psu,news-3...

Modular connectors introduce a possible failure point, more expense, inefficiencies, slight voltage loss, corrosion point. Yes, absolutely I want modular connectors for the "optional" cables but I'll take hybrid modular...... where the absolutely essential cables are hard wired over 100% modular any day. It just makes a better PSU.....liek the Corsair HX850 (10.0 jonnnyguru performance rating). See pics here:

750 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
650 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Seasonix X Series versions of the above are full 100% modular .... which I why I buy the Corsairs.

So the corsair hx750 would be a good pick then with the possibility of running 770 sli?
