This PSU seems damn near perfect!
The fixed cables are just what you need and nothing extra.
The one improvement I can imagine is adding another modular PCIe-cable or alternatively add another six-pin connector on each of the existing cables. That would allow the use of three lower-middle range of graphics cards (with one connector each) or two upper-middle cards (with two connectors each).

Cheers

Efficiency was terrific for a product that is going to be introduced on the market for less than USD 85, above 85% when we pulled between 40% and 60% from the labeled wattage (between 260 W and 390 W). When we pulled 20% of the maximum load (130 W) and 80% of the maximum load (520 W) efficiency was still high at 84%. And at full load efficiency was at 82%. With these numbers it would easily get an 80 Plus Bronze certification but curiously Ecos Consulting, the company behind 80 Plus, gave it just the standard 80 Plus certification (curiously this unit comes with the 80 Plus Bronze seal printed on its label).

According to the product label image you tested the Free Style 85PLUS (85EP model), which is the Bronze certified model.
