As the picture below makes clear, the Corsair RM750 is a fully modular PSU which lets you pick and choose exactly what cables you want present in your system.  The single 12v rail is rated at 62.5A which should handle two fairly powerful GPUs, there are four 6+2 PCIe power connectors to do so.  This unit is rated 80 Plus Gold and it did live up to that rating in [H]ard|OCP's testing.  Unfortunately the efficiency and silent operation were the only things [H] was impressed by as this unit really struggled in their testing and even those tests where it could manage a passing grade the PSU lagged behind the competition.

"We have all read about Corsair power supplies and it is quite likely that many [H]'ers have one in their computer case right now. Today we are looking at Corsair's newest RM series power supply rated at 750 watts. The RM is built, "fully modular and optimized for silence and high efficiency." Let's see how it handles our grueling power tests."
