It's a shame they didn't listen and made it semi modular, could have been a sure thing to have gone full modular especially given the competition. Bad show BitFenix

I do like you fully modular "sell the cables separately" idea, it would be something that could have made bitfenix a little more unique and likely have made their PSUs a must for a great deal of enthusiasts.

if the fan is face down you could perhaps hide the black 24-pin cable behind the other required cables and use an extension to have the correct colour going into your motherboard, but that really highlights the need for a fully modular version.

As to the face up, face down issue; this one has to go face down. I hate that regulatory sticker with a passion, its flat out ugly. I also think they dropped the ball with the 24 pin design. For myself its not an issue as I can sleeve anything to how I want it to look. Also a quick comment on the sleeving itself from the video. There is much too much heat-shrink on those cables. I really prefer the heat-shrink-less method. Yet I realize its more time consuming and really an enthusiast thing. They could go with less shrink though I think.

I was hoping it would look nice in my Air 540 but the regulatory sticker will be on show in it .

As TTL said should have been fully modular, then they could have sold the cable as part of a bundle deal or separate

Surely you won't see the PSU in a 540? It goes in the back, the only thing you'd see are the cables...

Bitfenix should supply another sticker that you can put over the specs sticker if you want to.

I'm not a huge fan of the silver ring on one side. A power supply should be discreet and remain in its little corner without attracting attention, imo.

I admit I'm not really deep into asthetics in terms of cable-management and showcasing and maybe that's why I don't mind it to be semi-modular at all and why I love the corsair tx-series so much.
But I surely can think into your point in liking it to have fully modular in terms of colour schemes for the cables.
Elsewise I kind of like BitFenix's approach with the top cover a lot since I don't quite agree with the point that a PSU should lurk in the shadows.
I see a PSU as a fundamental part of a system and not a need-to-have nuisance so why not have show up properly.
Nevertheless I very much like Coolermaster's approach with their sides where the spec-sticker is gone and the logo is put on to have the right orientation independent of how it is mounted.
