Is the modular version the same as the regular CX, just with modular plugs? or a different internal design altogether?

Duds happen. I've had/replaced DOA or young-death PSU'S from Corsair, Seasonic, EVGA, XFX, FSP, and Silverstone among others I can't remember... I wouldn't consider any of them to be bad brands or models, Just got duds. Being jostled during shipping is most likely the culprit.

From what I've read the x00 series are older and not very good. The x50 series are newer and are good to buy.

Will this be sufficient for an nVidia 1070 or AMD 480 on an Skylake i5 system with 16gb of RAM?

If you are someone who has a bunch of storage drives, fans, accessories, optical drive etc I wouldn't recommend a 450W power supply, as you may be cutting things a little close/not be able to overclock and the last thing you want is to have your future upgrade options limited by your psu. I suspect you could get by with 450W for a barebones skylake/ram/1060/480 rig, but I'd recommend looking for something more in the 500 to 650 tops range, just so you have complete piece of mind and never have to think twice when you install a new hard drive, overclock your cpu/gpu etc. luckily, power supplies go on sale very often and you won't have to wait around long for a good price on a 80+ XYZ psu Smilie

Looks like the rebate is for CX450M and CX600 only not CX450.
I would just get a CX600 to be safe for the rebate.

It's currently running my i7-6700k, GTX 1070, 16GB DDR, 480GB SSD, etc.

It should be plenty.

reading reviews on computer parts is basically listening to people bitch when something goes wrong and praise what they just installed

basically useless and a waste of time

real research can be found in rma numbers or in things that become common knowledge like what a POS the 840 evo is and why people avoid that drive. reviews on all that? no where to be found

The reviews document many people with denied rebates. I lost $20 due to a denied rebate. Waste your money if you like

no

will it work? yes

will the fans spin up? probably
will it have a short life and run hotter, probably. when you run a psu high up it's wattage range heat comes on and that = loud + shorter life

get something like the evga g2 550w for 79, much better psu and worth the few extra dollars

people who can't read the fine print or write legibly

again

garbage

if it were up to me any reviews without facts would be deleted. no opinions, no stupid people who can't figure something out. as it sits most reviews on most products are only for the herd followers and basically useless
