It'll still fit in the vast majority of cases, though, and the modular design at least means that you don't have to connect the cables you don't need, reducing clutter. Having a larger case means that there's room for a 135mm fan, rather than the PSU-standard of 120mm. Large fans can shift more air while spinning slower and quieter.
