The Deepcool DQ550ST 550W PSU is not even slightly modular, however it does ship with flat cables to make cable management much more effective for you. This also helps with the pricing, you should be able to find the unit for ~$50 which beats out the competition. This was [H]ard|OCP's first Deepcool PSU but that didn't deter them from strapping it into their torture chamber for some serious testing. The PSU passed all of their tests and showed itself to be a well build PSU which would be a good basis for a mid-range system. It did not come off with a reward, something to blame the marketers on as when you advertise a product as "one of the greatest PSU of DEEPCOOL" you raise expectations to a level beyond a mere pass. Check out the full review if you are in the market for a ~500W PSU that will give you good value for your money, even if it is not quite the greatest.
"DEEPCOOL is not the first brand that comes to mind when you think about PSUs. But when a company gives you a feature set like this, "120mm FDB Bearing PWM fan with specially designed fan-blade, enjoys higher wind-pressure, super silent and excellent performance," we have to take a look. I loves me some wind-pressure."
