The Fury-750G is 80 Plus Gold certified and can, according to its specifications, deliver its full power at up to 40°C continuously, which is contrary to the 50°C the ATX specification recommends. It is equipped with all available protection features, OTP (Over Temperature Protection), which is crucial, included, and uses a high-quality fan that is quite strong for a Gold-certified 750 W unit. This PSU doesn't utilize a semi-passive operation.

As far as Haswell compatibility is concerned, Bitfenix backs FSP's claims by mentioning that this unit is compatible with the new sleep states (C6 & C7) Intel's Haswell processors introduced, though our relevant test based on Intel's guidelines says otherwise. We actually made a point of fully investigating this paradox by running the corresponding test multiple times only to find out that the PSU would have passed our Haswell compatibility test with a maximum of 100 W combined on its minor rails, which is enough for a modern system. Bitfenix chose to leave the combined power of the minor rails at 160 W, which had the Fury fail the test, and we ultimately only have the unit's official specs to work with, so, yes, the Fury-750G is not Haswell compatible.
The provided warranty is long enough at five years, and the MSRP looks very stiff, but you have to keep in mind that the individually sleeved cables are expensive, which affects the price significantly. Some companies sell such cables as incredibly expensive, separate kits that cost anywhere from $80-$90 in addition to the PSU itself.
As already mentioned, the minor rails are unnecessarily strong for a modern 750 W unit, and the single +12V rail cannot deliver the unit's full power alone, although it is close with 60 A maximum current output. The 5VSB rail was a pleasant surprise as it is much stronger than what we usually come across in a PSU of this capacity.

The PSU feature nicely sleeved cables and comes with an adequate number of connectors for its capacity. Only the ATX cable is affixed to the unit. Every other cable is modular. All of its cables are long enough for even large full-tower cases, while the distance between connectors is spot on, with the SATA connectors closer to one another than the 4-pin Molex connectors, which will make cable management a breeze because HDDs are normally close to one another while peripheral devices, lights, fans, etc., are usually further apart. Bitfenix also includes an extremely long SATA/Molex connector, which might come in handy. All cables use standard 18AWG gauges, which is as the ATX spec recommends.
We have nothing to comment on when it comes to the PSU's power distribution because it features a single +12V rail.
