Inside the Box

Taking a look inside the box, we can see the packaging material for the ST50F-P. It is quite lackluster to say the least as the only protection the power supply receives is some cheap bubble wrap. The power supply shifts around freely in the box and isn't held in place securely at all. Even the bubble wrap was of low quality as half of the bubbles were popped.

The ST50F-P comes in a semi-gloss black finish. The top of the power supply has the SilverStone logo and name stamped in it.

One side of the ST50F-P houses the I/O specification label.

The other side of the PSU houses the identification stickers.

The front shows the available plug-ins for the modular cables. They are rather close together and proved to be a pain to remove cables once they were all connected. Simply rotating them 90 degrees would have made this much easier.

On the back of the ST50F-P we can see the large honeycomb style grill to maximize airflow and vent hot air from the PSU.

On the bottom of the power supply is the large 120mm fan with wire grill to keep everything cool.
