Semi-Modular PSU

So I know what semi-modular means, you can take out some of the cables in semi, and fully mod. has the bare necessities and stuff. I just have a question about the cables you can take out. 1. Will taking out some cables necessarily help in any way, cable management-wise? 2. What cables am I allowed to take out? All help is appreciated.

yes, this is the whole point. :)

What cables am I allowed to take out?

depends. on most semi modular units today everything except the main ATX 24 pin and the 4=4 pin EPS cables are modular. some older units have more fixed cables.

Another benefit to a fully modular supply is that you don't have to disconnect anything on the component side if you decide to upgrade the PSU to a similar model since the connectors would be all the same. For people that commonly mod their PCs, this is a big benefit to not have to rewire everything by making a small change.
