It more depends on how long the card is and where on the PSU the modular connectors are, I used a Seasonic G-series 160mm long semi-mod but the mod connectors are below the GPU card and it works.
I have a lightening (280mm) and I tried to install with an old Corsair AX750. The cables were smashed up onto the card, mind you this is a 149mm PSU and the GPU card was flexing. Not acceptable so I tried.........

I am hopefully going to stuff an almost 165mm psu when I grab it this summer. at least until I decide to get a new psu
I removed the bracket....and there really was not that much space. The built in 90 degree plug for the PSU on the other side eats up a lot of room. I will post pics if anyone is interested. I may pull the trigger on the Sparkle power supply, but I will go with the 700w version since it's the same length.
It kills me that Fractal makes PSUs but neither of them are suitable for this case.
