Non-modular

The PSU comes with ALL possible cables attached to it, ready to go.

This has the advantage of ensuring you're not going to need a cable.

The downside is that it's VERY messy for cable-management. Trying to find a place for all the excess cables can be a nightmare. Bad cable-management can mean the difference between good or bad airflow and consequently the operating temperature of your system.

Semi-modular

Only the essential cables come pre-attached. Usually this means, 24Pin ATX, a single PCIe, 8Pin CPU, and maybe one or two peripheral power cables (SATA/Molex). There's less clutter and it
is definitely much better than non-modular and a cheaper solution than going full modular.

Full Modular

Comes with no cables pre-attached. You only attach the ones you need.

It is more expensive, but also gives you more options, allowing you to only install the cables you need and keep airflow and cable management to a maximum. All newer generation HALE PSUs are fully modular.

Here's one of the most succinct answers I found: https://support.nzxt.com/hc/en-us..._site=true

That's faster than typing my own answer. In short though, semi has the "essential" cables attached and non-removable while modular is all cables can be removed. Most people don't really need fully modular PSUs.

Edit: it looks like I was beat to the punch.

Fully Modular; all the cables can be removed from the PSU
Semi Modular; essential cables typically come tethered to the PSU, with the option to add accessory cables.

Fully modular PSU's are way easier to work with, but if you dont really care about cable management, is an irrelevant feature to have.

Edit: I guess the rest of SD woke up with me, lol

I think alot of us learned something. It's not like people buy PSU's all the time.

I've been buying AX760 platinum refurbs from Newegg and they lowered the price to $89.99 on eBay yesterday. Great psu for those currently in the mining industry.

If you're only running dual 1070's or something I would just grab a 550w.

Why is AX760 so good for mining?

Would this be good for a Titan XP in a mining setup?

Likely the platinum rating for higher efficiency. All about the power consumption eating into profit.
