Buying a XFX 850W modular PSU.

 

Do modular PSUs come with all the same cables that a normal PSU has, or does it have fewer cables and you have to buy specifically what cables you need on top?

That looks like an awesome model for people who might need a secondary PSU to power additional drives, possibly in an external SAS/RAID setup. Most modular PSUs I have used still have the motherboard and CPU power cables hard wired to them.

All half-modular and fully modular units I've seen have always come with exactly as much cables as there are connectors on the modular board. It'be a shameless rip-off if they didn't, and I would prompty remove it from our listings, too.
