    you can pick from these. of course pretty much any psu made by a good manufacturer like corsair, seasonic, antec ,etc, will be fine

    but this is hands down THE BEST 850w psu out there - and it is very quiet because it turns its fan off when its cool.

  6. What advanatge do you expect from being 100% modular ? Most hi end PSU's are hydrid modular. The "optional" cables are modular but the ones that absolutely must be used are hard wired to a) reduce failure points b) cut unnecessary costs, reduce resistance and d) increase efficiency. The last two are marginal but having a modular cable that must be used anyway provides no advantage whatsoever....so even marginal advantages offset 0 advantage in having those cables modular.
