I'm new to building my own PC. Long story short, I love the idea of a fully modular PSU, however the price is a little steep. I've watched YT videos and looked at a few websites, but I still haven't quite gotten it. This is my build, incase I need some of the non-modular cables for some unknown reason. If someone wouldn't mind explaining to me which cords come attached to a semi and which of those I'll need. I watched this video on the Corsair Builder Series CX600M, which is what I was looking at getting. It showed a nice list of which cables come attached to the PSU...but I've no idea what they do, besides the big 20pin one (the mobo, right?). I assume the floppy drive is the last one being referenced, but I haven't seen one of those since I was young. I'm going to take a guess here and show that I've at least tried to do some homework and say that the Molex cord looks a lot like the cord for optical drives, but I've no idea beyond that what it's used for.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
