What is the difference between a modular psu and a non modular psu

You will have all the cables in there permanently. Otherwise you can plug as many as you need and not the useless once. I hope you got one that can feed the Nvidia 3000 series and that is another advantage of modulars, you can change cables if something changes.

Also you can get sleeved cables for fun

Modular will have connectors instead of a bundle of wires.

Non modular will have a bundle.

There's also semi modular, which generally has a hard wired 24 pin, some have 4/8 pin as well, and then has additional modular connects.

Modular/semi modular help with cable management and less clutter. It also makes installation a bit easier on you. Other than that, there's no major benefits to one over the other.

sometimes, but in cases with lots of room it doesn't matter at all, they can just be tucked away

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

certainly appears to have a very large basement for excess cables. I've used cases similar to it and stuffed many a PSU cable down there.
