You list "Not fully modular" as a con but I'd count that as a bonus. Hard-soldered connections will carry the current with less resistance and I can't think of any time when you wouldn't need almost every single one of the non-modular cables.

Damn nice supply though. :)

The resistance drop across the modular connection is negligible and does not decrease the voltage coming through in a measurable amount the last couple times I tried it. I understand that any break in a wire imparts an increased resistance value and can increase heat through the connection and lead to a voltage drop but its not an issue here. The main ATX connection is not my issue anyhow its the ancillary connections that must be hidden if not used.
