The downside to a modular supply is mechanical wear on contacts, potential multiple points of failure, and power losses (however slight) at each connector. PC Power & Cooling had an excellent article on their website a few years ago about the drawbacks and benefits of modular vs n0n-modular PSU's. Not sure if it's still there after the OCZ remake.
