You might have better luck in the power supplies forum: http://www.overclock.net/power-supplies/

Basically, I like them, a lot of other people do as well. Sometimes people say that they are sketchy due to the connections. Not really sure.

The other forum would be a better place to ask, but regardless:

Pros, less cables to wrangle. Looks pretty. Good for tight spaces (depending on the model - HiperX has HUGE connectors)

Cons, connection prone to mechanical failure. Generally not much to worry about.

I guess it's just a case of which one you get, the connectors on my Enermax are rather like the connectors for PCI-E graphics cards, there's no way they're going to fail/disconnect.
