Pro: It's very quiet and the build quality goes without saying, coming from Seasonic.
Cons: The two SATA cables are grouped together in a weird way, making it very hard for me to route them to my 2 SSD and HDD. Took me forever to set them up. PCIe 6+2pin cables are also grouped together while my GPU only requires one 6+2pin connector. I had no choice but to leave the extra connector just hanging at the front of my case.

As soon as I started researching this build I quickly found out SeaSonic makes the best PSUs you can buy, so I wanted one. They live up to their reputation, as this was completely silent.

Possibly one of my favorite components. Has amazing features and stays cool. Will never use another brand psu for any of my builds.

from completed build My first PC build: AMD all 'round mid-tier (pro tip: find your closest Microcenter)
Use the wattage calculators from trusted brands, such as Seasonic, EVGA, Corsair. Also, this was the recommended wattage according to the GPU specs. Minimum would be 550 W 80+ Bronze, but you want some extra wiggle room. 750 W would be the highest for any single GPU configuration if you wanted to future proof. Anything more than that is overkill. This 650W happened to be a better deal at the time of purchase. Semi-modular is all I need, but fully-modular is great for customization/management. There's also the concept of power efficiency and build quality that increases with higher ratings and wattage. PSU is a component that you don't want to cheap out on because 1 mishap can brick your entire rig. Better safe than sorry here, and I wanted peace of mind.

Unless you're going for glamorous cable coordination, there's no reason to get any more modular than semi. Seasonic sells a fine power supply whichever way you want. This one didn't have the auxiliary 4-pin 12V power for the ambitious overclocker — which I'm not, but I got a Molex adapter to deliver the current anyway.
