Right now I'm stuck between 2 PSU's. First is the NZXT hale90 750W. My main reason for this one is I think it would look killer in my white NZXT Phantom 410 and all the reviews and specs I have read on it are all positive. The only downside, well more of a personal thing, is that is isn't 100% modular. The second PSU I'm looking at is the Corsair AX750. This one is fully modular and also has awesome reviews and specs about it. Just the gripe is that it is black and not white haha. Roughly the same price on amazon, like a $6 difference so that really doesn't bother me at all. Any and all input would be helpful, thanks!! thumb.gif

The NZXT one, because it matches your case! thumb.gif
Plus i was iffy about a non fully moular but i bought it anyway 'cause of the price. (It was on sale). I'm happy i did because there is a single cable that i don't use (that isn't modular). I'm sure you'd be in the same situation.

Corsair do have an amazing warranty/replacement policy though, you'll be happy both ways but i think you'd be happier with the NZXT one.

You don't need a 100% modular PSU anyways unless you are going to be sleeving all of them yourself. The hybrid modular ones are basically all modular except like 4 basic cables which you will be using no matter what.

Go with the NZXT. wink.gif

Popular opinion is a poor way to choose power supplies...

Well I was actually thinking of individually sleeving the wires. BUT I could always cheat and buy the Corsair set they have for their power supply rolleyes.gif

I wasn't necessarily basing what I choose off of popular opinion. I just wanted some insight on what people thought. I was already leaning 80/20 towards one but just wanted to know what people thought or any advice.
