The BitFenix Formula Gold 750 W is one of the quietest PSUs in the sub-$100 category, and it performs very well in all other areas. Its fixed cables are the only compromise - you clearly cannot have it all at such an affordable price.

1) How does it handle asymmetric load on 12V? I had here LC Power PSU that sh*t itself, cause I was using just one 12V. (GPU without PCIe connection)
2) Also I'm missing here review of Corsair VS series. Or is that one just for European market?

CL tests it does fine, since it has VRMs.

Corsair VS, I didn't have any sample of those yet.

Eh I'd rather pay the extra $3 for a fully modular PSU.

Yeah, why would anyone take this complete joke of a PSU over a Seasonic Focus Plus? Maybe Bitfenix should stick to making shitty mITX cases at the volume of full ATX ones.
