Fully modular indicates that every power connector is detachable and removable. High end power supplies tend to have a full modular design. It's no surprise given that they appeal to hardware enthusiasts and cable management zealots by allowing for total cable customization, such as changing the length, colour and even sleeving of the modular power connectors.
Semi modular units have a few power cables that are permanently fused to the power supply while the remaining ones can be detached. see less

Semi modular will have the 24 and 8 pin connectors wired in, you have to use them anyway so it's no issue, fully modular PSU will require you to connect all cables to power supply. I have a semi modular PSU and very happy with it.

Modular comes with no cables attached but spaces for you to attach the cables necessary and semi modular comes with the basic cables like a normal power supply but with space for other cables for you to plug in your own. Hope this helps.
