Good criticisms, although I don't think semi-modular is worth complaining about, as the only fixed cables are must haves anyways(disclaimer, I have nothing but fully-modular units in my machines, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy a semi, if the "deal" was right).

My only concern is that at this price level you get fully modular PSUs. Of course there is nothing wrong about semi-modular PSUs, although I highly prefer fully modular ones :)

I guess my question is, would that be a price criticism or a criticism of it not being fully modular? Because I agree with you, if they're charging fully modular prices, then it should be fully modular, or they should charge semi-modular price.
Aris, I think you do all of a us a huge service with your PSU reviews. New builders don't always realize that the PSU is the single most important part of their build. Keep up the good work.

The only reason you would need a fully modular psu ever is if you planed on replacing the cables with some color matched cables for a show type look.
Oh and madmatt30, it's actually a good amount more than 2cents. Figure 2% difference with say average user gaming load of 300watt is 60 watts per hour. Average 10hrs a week light load. 2.4kwh extra per month. At my electric cost that is about 2$ a month in savings for only 10hr usage.
