I get what you mean.
By the way, if you are considering the X-1250, I'd suggest you check the cables. They come in at 2 different sets of cables. One is using all black, flat ribbon-type wires, the other comes in with colored wires.
The one using the colored wires is very modding friendly. You can sleeve individual wires esp on the GPU. The PSU side is a 16 or 12 (can't remember well) wire socket. So each cable can be sleeved without crossing paths. Well sought out.
