Cant seem to find a PSU that would have enough power for me even if I plan to OC this rig. Any suggestions?

a good psu with at least 350 watts on the +12v would do for this build, but that's hard to find. the 960 is very lean on power (and muscle) and the locked i7 is as well. my system with a 4.4ghz/1.2v 4770k, 2400mhz ram and a GTX 980 SC with a custom BIOS is using 94 watts at idle (90% of the time it's powered on) and up to 328 watts from the psu during gaming and 375 during syntehtic stress on the cpu and gpu. both my multimeter and psu's digital software show the same results. your system is gonna draw alot less than mine in any task. that cpu is locked so you'll want the 4790k version.

I changed my build a bit, i5 6600! But do I need a atx12v PSU? Also is a full modual nessesery? Or can I get away with a semi modual for good cable management?

semi modular is fine.
