An interesting feature of the MasterWatt V models is the use of 16AWG gauges on the PCIe and EPS connectors, something that usually is the case in higher capacity PSUs and not in mid capacity ones. Thicker gauges lead to lower voltage drops, thus they provide a small efficiency boost because less energy is wasted as heat.
That would be case if someone decides to span his PSU cables over 10 meter distances. In typical PC application, where at most, an ATX24 cable could be 1 meter long when routed in a weird way around the case, there is no significant difference between AWG18 and AWG16.
