and is one of the best 650w psu out there. Also this unit is Partially MODULAR which I believe was what you was looking for.
It's $150 because the unit performs well. I'm currently reading the JonnyGuru and HardOCP reviews on it. Jonny gave it a 10/10 in performance.
Performance (40% of the final score) - when the Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550W arrived at my house, I figured it would sacrifice performance for extreme efficiency. I figured wrong. Not only is this little guy exceptionally efficient, it's also quite the workhorse. It doesn't mind getting hot, it regulates like a beast, and is among the best units I've tested for ripple and noise suppression. I'm having trouble seeing a downside, here. Is it the best performance of all the units I've ever seen? No. But, it's close enough for me to want to reward Kingwin with a nice shiny 10 today.
- unbelievably efficient
- very low ripple and noise
- better than 1% regulation on all main rails
- goes fanless at low temps and even some higher temps
