Modular or non-modular?

- Corsair 550VX
- Silverstone ST50EF Plus

Does not matter whether it is modular or not. Having the cables sleeved is more important.

Then see my recommendations above.

I was looking at the Corsair, the review from Johnny Guru was very good. I like the fact that when they tested it the Corsair VX 550W it exceeded the rated power.


Anyway, I'm impressed with the VX550W. She puts out 556W at a load that calculated by A*V for all rails driven (at spec voltages) should have been 548W. Neat, it actually exceeds it's rating which is a refreshing change. - Johnny Guru
