Seasonic showed us a unique new innovation that could change the way you manage your cable clutter, particularly python-wrestling with your 24-pin cable behind the motherboard tray. Called simply the Seasonic Connect, the accessory is a PSU connection hub, or a disintegration of a conventional modular PSU's connector back-plane. A ruler-shaped structure runs behind your case's motherboard tray, with your PSU's various connectors (ATX, EPS, PCIe, SATA), on its either sides. Shorter-than-usual modular cables handle the "last-mile" connection to the various devices. A single ribbon cable runs between the Connect and the PSU, with high-capacity wires for the various voltage domains (+12V, 3.3V, 5V, etc.). Those into PSU cable modding would be breathing very heavily. The upcoming Prime GX750, an upper-mid range model with 80 Plus Gold chops, could be the first to implement this concept.
