    I'm a fan (excuse pun) too. Usually, I go for Seasonic or Enermax due to (touch wood) having never yet been let down by one.

    PS. I just KNOW I'm going to regret saying that.

    Seasonics cables are annoyingly short. I have a mini-ITX chassis for one of my computers but the SATA are fart oo short to go round the back. I've just had to dump them in a pile.
    With my larger case below, all the cables except the main 24pin one have to go round the front, but to be fair in this chassis they would have to be exceptionally long to go round the back and in between each disk in the way that I want them.

    They also don't bend or flex very well making the SATA power cables difficult to plug in when disks are immediately next to each other. It can also leave a large loopy bit in the way of the side panel.

    I wish you could choose the type of cables in a modular design. I.e. buy a PSU without cables, then add a cable pack.
    I'd go old school every time, longer and more flexible, yes they looked horrible but I don't look at the insides unless I'm working on it.

    +1 to that.
    Silverstone did (may still do) a short set for their modular PSU's for an ITX build.

    Agree. I'm still using an Enermax Liberty 400w which, in theory, should have been upgraded years ago.

    Never got around to it. It just sits there and works.

    If the Enermax dies tomorrow which, as you imply, it probably will, I'll probably go for a Seasonic. A 10 year warranty is very appealing.

    I also like AGTDenton's comment about buying a PSU without cables.
