I've always had a question about these fully modular vs semi-modular PSUs. Practically all the semi-modular are modular except the 24pin cable and given that's mandatory for every motherboard what's the point making it detachable anyway. It seems like a "I'm more modular than you playground game".

If you want custom cables in your build then the fully modular is one of the best ways to go if you don’t want cable extensions in your case which can get very cramped.
Snake oil.... there's no difference between these and a ten quid one, it's the apple marketing model all over again, put a premium price on anything and they'll queue up ;-(

If you intend to draw 600w from your 650w PSU then a cheap one will completely fail. For a computer drawing on the region of 150w then you probably might get away with a cheap PSU as long as it's a better made one but it's far more likely to start spitting out bad voltages and could even fry something.

lol yeah ok bud ! i've got the 750 version of this and when you spend over 2k on a build you don't want to be putting in a £10 PSU lol
The 850w version is around £90 on Amazon at the moment, cheaper than they sell the 750w if you need something more po

Please tell me that's just a troll post. There's literally only one component you REALLY shouldn't skimp out on and that's the PSU. It delivers power to all of your components. If it isn't efficient enough to deliver to all components then the system won't be stable. Also, the PSU internals will be made of cheaper parts more likely to blow etc which can cause huge damage.

No.. I'm serious, I have worked in the computer industry for 30 years, and built hundreds of pcs with the cheapest case/psu available and had a return of less than 1% with psu faults, and zero % that had caused hardware damage !
Yes expensive psus will be better "made" and have more protection circuitry, but our country has a good (for now!) electrical supply.
Do you think your new expensive TV won't have a £5 psu ? or that new light bulb with its 4p one !
Either you know electronics or you're guessing... and rely on the spin.

I don't see your point in bringing up TVs and lightbulbs. They're completely different products. It's not like I can use my 4p lightbulb PSU in a PC nor would I expect a TV PSU to do so. The power requirements are completely different in terms of wattage, voltage, transforming, rails, safety/protection etc.

The point is a well designed cheap PSU will work...

If you don't mind me asking, do you have a link to what PSUs you use when building PCs as I don't think I've ever seen anything that cheap.

We used to buy in bulk from distributors, and the cases were like razor blades
Quality has in fact improved.. bought a 20 quid case recently from a local shop, and there were no sharp edges (yes, it has a psu !)

Ah ok, bulk is a very different scenario though imo There's other benefits to these as well as they're likely better aesthetically (i.e. cables and the unit itself) and will have a better warranty.

Were the PSUs at least 80+ rated? Personally that would be the minimum I'd use but for a build myself I'd look for something modular and 80+ gold such as this one. (Currently use an EVGA 650GS and probably will for the foreseeable future)

On a personal level, you can buy whatever you like... I was trying to put the point that by spending more, you dont necessarily get "better" !

As for 80+ rating... No I very much doubt it, the brief was "as cheap as possible" !!! LOL
Besides, the 80+ rating is voluntary ... really means nothing, and as a ton of our stuff is made from chinesium... they are hardly trust worthy when it comes to labling.
