Get a Enermax 1250W, those are beast of PSUs and they're top notch.

I think the Ultra X3 is the best you can do in that wattage range for what you want.

When you say fully modular, I don't think I know of any power supplies that don't have a few hardwired cables.

This is a very good point.
Maybe the cables would be easier to sleeve?

the silverstone strider series are good psu's i think they go from 750w all the way to 1500w, they are all "Fully Modular" every cable is modular, i'd go for them if you want a completely modular but if not enermax psu's are really nice and are modular but a few cables aren't

There are a number on the market and it's hard to say which is the best. In my estimation the Enermax 1050W and 1250W power supplies are the best in that wattage range; but there are other good options. The Corsair HX1000W is popular due to the Corsair brand name, but it's only an average performer and there are betters for the price. Also consider Silverstone, Thermaltake, OCZ Z-series, and Antec power supplies.

There are some ~$100 1kw PSUs on the market, such as the Rosewill Bronze 1000W and the Huntkey/Rocketfish 900W. Those two in particular are ok; some others such as the Athena Power 950W and CoolMax RM-1000B are garbage and to be avoided at all costs. My philosophy is, if you need a 1000W PSU you can probably afford a good one. If you don't need a 1000W, and 99% of the people reading this thread don't, then you'd be better served getting a quality 650-850W power supply.

Bottom LINE
There's a lot of misinformation out there about power supplies, and a lot of people wasting money on 1kw+ power supplies when they don't need them. Use common sense. Go with quality, brand name units. If it looks fishy, it probably is. More power isn't always better; nor is it always worse.

I hope this was of some use.
