Why the FUCK are non-modular PSUs still produced? These fucking chtulhu spawns need to be put in the fucking oven.

I just replaced one of these pieces of shit, since it was 10 years old and it was about time to replace it, with a Seasonic Focus+ Gold 750W, and it's so much better from a cable management perspective. Holy shit.

To be fair, it was actually a pretty good power supply, but my fucking god I hate non-modular PSUs.

It's not about looking nice, it's just that it's a fucking clusterfuck to work inside a case when one of these cthulhu monstrosities are in them.

I don't. I care about how easy it is to work with, and non-modular PSUs always create a god damn clusterfuck if you don't autistically arrange all your cables.

It's only really a problem on higher wattage power supplies because they tend to have more lines coming out of the PSU.
I have a non-modular PSU in my computer and it wasn't that bad to work with. I was stuffing all the cables behind the motherboard tray anyway.

Well, the pinout on one brand of PSU could easily be different to the pinout on another so it could be an issue.

Jayztwocents, go back to school.

This is actually a pretty strong argument against modular PSUs. That, and the simple fact that the cables aren't attached. I switched to always use modular PSUs for everything some years back. Kept the excess cables in a bag with a label since day one, kind of annoying to have several of those bags. Many don't do this and the cables are usually differently pinned. Probably only a matter of time before I screw that up even though I use labels.

Also, the simple fact that the cables are attached to the PSU is an advantage. I bought modular when I built for my nephew and ended up putting the cables inside a bag attached to the 5.25" bay because he might need them some day when I'm not around. You don't have the problem of "I want to attach more HDDs but I don't have or can't find the cable" with non-modular.

>> No.68111972

I just replaced my 6 years old XFX PRO550W, that was making a very weird and annoying noise, for a Seasonic Focus Plus 750 Platinum (I'm still wondering how PSU are fucking priced, because I found it for less than the 750 Gold). All in all having a modular PSU makes your building and cable management a little bit easier, but you don't really save that much space since at least in my case I used almost all cables.

>> No.68112009

>weird and annoying noise
what is sort-of like crackling? I replaced a 10 year old Corsair TX some months ago because it begun making that crackling type sound and that's indicative of arching going on.

anyway, good call on replacing it, if a PSU starts making a noise it never made before after years then that's a sign it's become dangerous

I'm complaining about the fact that you HAVE to do this to not make it a clusterfuck. Then when you need to undo all your cable management to replace the PSU it becomes a clusterfuck.

Have you tried reading comprehension?

>> No.68112434


Nigger literally just wrap the unused cables in a bundle and rest it in front of the psu. Are you using the remaining cables to draw a Mona Lisa at the back of the case or something?

>> No.68112579

It was a constantly clicking noise, sometimes louder than others, that increased in frequency with load. You can find videos of this phenomenon. It was something that started happening randomly and then it disappeared on its own after a while like a year ago, but in the last months the noise never went away, and most scary of all you could hear the same ticking in the circuit breaker panel, and in the back of the TV on the other side of the house. The mix of annoyance and actual safety concerns convinced me in getting the new one. I'm actually happy because a 750w 80 plus platinum PSU for €110 shipped is an actual good deal.

They are reliable, produce less heat (less resistance) and with decent cable management and chassis that permits it. The extra cables are really a non-issue.

The thing is, Seasonic supplies the actual PSU for other brands too. If Seasonic wasn't reliable you'd all be fucked because a lot of PSUs are just rebranded Seasonics.

Seasonic and Superflower are both two excellent brands with great track records, and most other good brands are rebrands of their PSUs.

It's model specific. For example, EVGA's entire line-up pretty much consists of either Seasonic or Superflower rebranded PSUs. Pretty much all of Corsair's good PSUs are rebranded Seasonic too.

Those are also mostly rebrands too, though I don't know if it's Seasonic. I know they use FSP a lot.

Most PSU "brands" like Silverstone, EVGA, Corsair, Antec etc. aren't actually manufactured by them. For example, EVGA:


>> No.68114982

Let me put it this way, Seasonic is probably the only PSU brand you see in stores that's actually made by the brand on the box. Corsair and EVGA and Cooler Master and probably all the other brands you see aren't manufacturing PSUs and they are also not manufacturing most the other products they are selling. They do design some things to a certain degree.

If you buy a high-end (not garbage) PSU then it's probably made by either Seasonic or Superflower.

Not that anyone asked but I thought it might be helpful if I passed along the fact that I built three pc's with the SeaSonic 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply in the last two years including the pc I am using right now. Those psu's were a pleasure to build with, they are absolutely silent with not a hint of coil whine, they come with an absurd variety of cables, and they look really cool.


>> No.68115871

silverstone is good but worse. Seasonic titanium line is the world's most efficient psu line (96%+ at 50% load @ 230V). It's objectively the absolute best. 12 years of guarantee.
It also has a very nice passive fan system that only turns on above some temperature. The fan has the lowest expected lifetime of all components because it's mechanical (even though it's very good fdb) so a passive system easily increases the total lifetime 3x.

If you want quality get a seasonic titanium.

modular PSU are less reliable because they have more failure points while servicing the hardware using them that's why servers don't use them or mass builders like dell they increase returns and faults.

they are kewl thou I just got my first modular psu very nice but really just for case window faggots.
