New modular power supplies for computer enthusiasts

OCZ Technology has announced the addition of the new Silencer Mk III power supply that is available in both 750 W and 850 W models. The company says both of the power supplies meet the 80+ Gold certification for energy efficiency.
Both versions of the power supply promise over 90% efficiency with typical workloads. The PSUs also feature OCZ’s Dual Thermal Control System that allows the power supply to switch between normal and silent operation modes. The power supply works in conjunction with load and temperature controlled fans for the quietest operation possible.

The power supplies use a single +12V rail, premium components including 100% Japanese 105°C capacitors, protection circuits, and more. The high-end components allow the power supply to provide continuous stable output at 50°C ambient temperature. The power supply also uses a modular cable design allowing users to only plug-in the cables needed.
Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

...and not OCZ designs, then they should be good PSUs, as in the past. The aircraft style screw-on cable connectors are a nice touch if you're going with a modular design. The PCPC Silencer series has always been good PSU designs so these should be also - if priced competitively.

Would seem safer if the female connector was on the psu...

Nah, don't worry so much. Just cover the unused ones off with something if you wanted to. Like, say, a penny...

You beat me to it. Think I'll be sticking with my Corsair-branded Seasonic.

It's actually quite funny, Hiper used to sell a modular PSU using the same type of connectors, I had one about 6-7 years ago roughly.
