Unfortunately it has been a while since I've did the wiring on my case... and I've forgotten how much of a pain non-modular power supplies are D:

But once you get the cabling done... you never have to do it again (well for the most part) so it isn't so bad after that.

I have never liked having more cable clutter in the case than what was required. I love the modular power supplies, especially since now that most cases have a clear sidewindow. Probably didn't matter back in the day when cases were plain and boring and you saw nothing when you put the side panel on.

I have the Zalman Z11 plus with the Corsair CX600 which is non modular and it works great, plenty of cable management and not too messy, if only the case had rubber gromets in the cutouts. I am about to sleeve the power supply so hopefully that might make it look even neater!!!

Not enough type of plugs I need, so I had to use tons of adapters that didn't fit and couldn't put lots of cables in the back
