Check out the M12ii . It's the modular version of the S12ii.

Seasonic is the best. The CX is really bad because it's for budget builds.

Just a quick question... does the seasonic m12-II EVO 620W support the haswell cpu's? I cant remember what it was called, but it needed PSUs to support the feature for it to work and will it even matter much?
