Hey guys,

I have a semi-modular Rosewill 1000W PSU

To power my GPU, I am using the non-modular 8 and 6 pin PCIE connectors that are coming out of my PSU. I am curious if it will make any difference to use the modular PCIE connectors to power GPU instead. My logic is that the modular connectors might have a separate rail and not interfere with the non-modular ATV12V (24 pin) motherboard connectors and EPS12V CPU connectors power delivery. With the separate rail providing cleaner power, I could improve stability and OC my GPU even further? Thoughts?

Doesn't matter performance will be the same.

If I were you I would pick modular PSU :D

I don't think I was clear enough. I already have a semi-modular PSU. When I am refering to modular vs non-modular, I am referring to the wires of my PSU. Since it's semi-modular, there are soldered connection (nonmodular) and plug in connections (modular). I wanted to see if there will be any difference between the two within the same power supply.
