Every PC needs a high-quality PSU, though sadly not all of us can afford high-end 80+ Platinum series models. A lot of us build PCs on a tight budget, making affordable, yet reliable solutions a must.  
 
Cooler Master has now launched their MasterWatt Lite series of 80+ certified power supplies, offering efficiencies of 85% under typical loads and wattages ranging from 400W to 700W.

What the MasterWatt Lite aims to deliver is cheap reliable power to PC gamers, though the downside there is the PSU's lack of modular cables and the PSU's 80+ white certification. 

Many will be very willing to pay a price premium in order to get a competing semi-modular PSU model or a model with a higher grade of 80+ certification. That being said the PSU does deliver 85%+ efficiencies under most standard loads. Below is a table showing all currently offered 80+ power certifications.

The myth about only with modular power supply is possible to achieve better airflow and better cable management is just a myth, I always use fully wired power supply in all my computers and if the fully wired cables are properly hidden behind the motherboard tray, the fully wired power supply can easily match and surpass the cable management the people can get with modular PSU, below we can see an example of fully wired power supply

Yup that would totally work in an ITX case or a case with minimal space.Quote

Looking at the example given - yes a fully cabled PSU works in a massive case with a back panel running one HDD, one GPU and a passively cooled CPU.

My 460X would be out of the question. I struggle to get the back panel on with just the minimum required cables. Modular is good.Quote

I managed a reasonably tidy build in a BitFenix Prodigy M with a non-modular PSU, never again though, life's too short.Quote
