Inside the Box

This is the Joule 800W exactly as it sits inside the box. The power supply is held in place by the cables and that is it. There is no foam padding, simply the bubble wrap around the power supply for protection.

The other side of the power supply is black with nothing on it, but gives you a good look at the color and matte finish of the unit.

Here again we see the I/O specifications of the Joule 800W and it lists only a pair of 12V rails.

The bottom reveals the 120mm fan with wire grill that cools the Joule 800W.

Taking a look at the back, we find an extremely open grill design that allows for maximum airflow out of the power supply. Of all the things that we've seen so far with the Joule 800W, this is probably the best. It would be nice to see more manufacturers follow this open design.

Also included in the box are some mounting screws, the AC input cord, a pair of zip ties, a pair of reusable Velcro cable ties and the owner's manual.
