    Nice review very detailed.

    Not bad, but I would never buy a non modular psu. I think all psu's should be at least modular.

    I guess the only real upside for me is the fanless operation. But for that I would get one of the new HX units which have the same feature.

    Forgot to mention that you could remove the blue plastic on the psu and put in red or white

    First time i saw smth like that was only on this psu.
    I read that on page 3, but it is not mentioned in the value and conclusion as a pro.

    Sorry but for me it wasn't something worthy to add it to pros and to conclusion.
     
    Aleksander says thanks.

    You hate easy cable management? :wtf:

    Disappointing about the single EPS.

    Hello there, I think I dont need modular PSU because I can easily hide the cables behind the motherboard tray, therefore the "modular" feature in my opinion is pointless

    Not all cases are built the same.some don't even have space behind the motherboard tray for any cables. Plus it make cable management a lot easier when you only have what you need. Yet, if you add hardware later you simply plug in the cables you need.
