  1. The lack of SATA cables on my VS650 is actually starting to piss me off. Its only got the 2 on a lone cable, plus 1 on each of the molex chains which makes them bloody awkward to use. It should have just been sold as a 500W PSU with a higher operating temperature.

      I hear ya :/ my AX760 is sorely lacking in the SATA connector department too. (Maybe it's cause I have like 28 SATA storage devices to plug in, plus another 11 IDE drives...)

      Also I wish mine weren't on chains, would love to have more flexibility on where to put drives.  For example, have an SSD behind the motherboard tray and a HDD in the top 5.25" bay (in an adapter, cause the Define R5 doesn't have enough 3.5" bays) both connected to the same port on the PSU.

      I saw a youtube channel (iirc HDD Recovery Services) plugging in HDDs on his workbench with individual cables that weren't on chains...

      That's more a case of most computers outside of servers needing that many connectors. With mine its a 650W PSU that only has as many connectors as a very low end 500W PSU/mid range 450W PSU. As it is the 2x lone SATA connectors are also the only ones which support 3.3V SATA devices.
