4 out of 5 eggs Long thick modular PSU cables are a turn off but not a deal breaker 07/15/2016

This review is from: CORSAIR CX-M series CX750M 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply

Pros: small and compact
easy installation
affordable (got it for $50 w/ $20 rebate)
decent warranty

Cons: long thick modular cables leaves excess cabling
No braided sleeving
Type 4 PCIE cables (uncommon for most PSU's)
semi-modular

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a PSU to complete your budget build this is it. However you may wanna use other modular cabling other than what the PSU comes with especially for cable management's sake.
---EDIT---
Had an issue where I was trying to troubleshoot a potential PSU problem by switching out this PSU with another one from different system of mine. I left the cables from this Corsair PSU connected to my peripherals in the same system while I only switched out the PSU. When I started my system, I was prompted by a BIOS error screen and it was only recognizing my mouse and keyboard. Come to find out, the proprietary cables from the Corsair PSU fried my peripherals which included a 512GB SSD, 3TB HDD, and 1TB HDD. When I pulled the peripherals out of the system, they had a burning smell coming from them. I should've never ditched buying an EVGA PSU this time around. Never again will I buy a CORSAIR PSU.

This review is from: ASUS Z170M-PLUS LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: PS/2 ports available necessary to install Windows 7
Capable of installing OS X with (hackintosh)
UEFI BIOS with a lot of modern beneficial features
Supports both legacy & UEFI simultaneously
Q-Fan Config's auto-setup
Able to maintain modest overclock via BCLK w/ non-K CPU (G4500 @4.2GHz) (Google for flashable BIOS)
Very affordable compared to other brands (*cough*cough*EVGA*cough)

Cons: Not plug and play for hot swapping disk drives
Error each time a new disk is connected w/o prior setup in BIOS
I hate the ASUS splash logo included with Windows 10 initial loading screen

Other Thoughts: For use as a budget build HTPC in the living room
