I found an error in the cabling description.

The text says there are five permanently attached cables; the main ATX cable, two PCIe cables and one cable with two 4-pin ATX 12V connectors (making up a total of four cables).
The picture shows one cable with one 4-pin ATX and one cable with an 8-pin EPS for supplying the CPU, adding one cable to the total.

Regarding the conclusion of choosing which PSU to buy out of this, Seasonic M12D or Corsair HX750W there's another factor to consider: Acoustic noise level. For somebody opting to build an extremely quiet computer that's the deciding factor! (And since the three PSUs use different fans with different temperature/speed regulation there's a difference between them.)

Cheers
Olle

The number of cables is terrific for the high-end user, supporting two very high-end video cards that require two power connectors each.
Kudos, that wasn't too hard was it??? The video card capability comment should be included in every review.

XFX cables and connectors supports the image that this PSU does have a separate EPS-12 connector.

If someone wants an extremely quite PSU in this range they should opt for the Seasonic X-750. The person who wants exteme quiet is usually willing to pay top dollar. In this case its $50 or $30 on sale.
