The Packaging

Our first look at the packaging shows a huge box. We've seen microwave ovens come in smaller boxes, but the AX1200 comes with a whole lot of power, cables and connectors, so it warrants the size. Surprising there's no marketing on the front of the box. It's kept simple. There is the model number and that's about it.

Checking the back of the box, we find that they have crammed all of the marketing information here. It almost reads like a white paper. There is a good list of connector availability, although it does lack cable lengths to go with it.

The sides of the box are just like the font, devoid of anything useful about the power supply. Both of them are the same.

Moving to the bottom, we finally find a little bit more useful information here. There is the warranty logo that lets us know that the power supply has a 7 year warranty and the 80Plus Gold logo telling us that this monster has great efficiency. Surprisingly, Corsair hasn't chosen to display the CrossfireX or SLI logo's on the box, despite it being certified for both.
