Hey guys. I'm building my first pc and I'm in need of a bit of info/help pertaining to rather or not this PSU is any good or not. I've heard that it has faulty capacitors on the non modular version. But the modular and semi modular versions are ok. Can anyone confirm this? I'm not even entirely sure what modular/semi modular is. Anyhow. Any help would be much appreciated here. And heres my build aswell.

What is your budget?

On a tight budget, forget modular.
