    So glad I got at least a semi-modular. Love the flat black CPU and PCIe cables that come with it, but it comes with ketchup and mustard 24 pin cables. Added some sleeved cable extensions and it looks fantastic.

    Great PSU. Have had no problems so far. Really nice clean design. Comes with everything you need and is very quiet.

    Good cheap psu. Beware of overclocking with this unit. Use a wattage meter to test your system to make sure you don't push past its normal limits and operating temperature. Otherwise buy another psu that has more power and is made for gaming.

    This has been powering my system for a solid 7 years, I do not power down my system but rather just let it go into sleep mode. No issues. This is a 2013 model very much hated across the internet, but I have had no issues with it. The CX series has since been improved and is receiving great reviews now. This for the most part still is the value price to performance budget pick, But at the right price.. Consider EVGA BQ if cheaper is what you really want.

    Four out of five dentists recommend modular power supplies for their patients who purchase power supplies. That would have been funny if I wrote this review twenty years ago.
