Hey guys.. I realize that there are plenty of roundup threads for 1000w power supplies, but they seem to be non-modular.. I'm most certainly looking for a modular one and would like to know the best one for a reasonable price... If anyone knows please drop me a quick line.
Here are some of them I was looking at lemme know if one of those are rated good or suggest another one please
Is there a particular reason why you want modular?
With a properly sized psu, you will be using most of the power leads anyway, making modular of less value.
There is a plus for neatness if there are enough leads that you will not be using, or if you have a case with poor cable management capabilities.
That's a load of crap. Why would anyone be plugging and unplugging the end of the cable connected to the PSU enough to make it deteriorate or become loose? If you really need to detach the cables, how will a hardwired PSU help? Why won't the connector at the other end of the cable deteriorate or become loose?
Considering that you can purchase all the PSU ends for anywhere between $0.10 and $1 (molex, fan, aux 6pin, floppy, atx 20pin, p4 12v 4pin,...) each, all you need is needle-nose pliers, some electrical tape, and a pair of scissors and you can make any psu modular... Really, BETTER than modular, since you can adjust your PSU power-cable lengths perfectly. svc.com, moddersmart.com and frozencpu.com all sell the parts and tools. Change them to UV colored ends, or if you want even more customization, replace the individual wires with UV colored wires... Make all your electrical UV-Red, use UV-Blue for your water cooling, get UV-Green SATA Cables for your drives...
anyway, PSUs are pretty easy to mod. and you can cut off and cap the cables you don't need if you don't have a case where you can tuck them away...
