Inside the Box

Inside the box we find the user manual and box of modular cables sitting on top of the power supply.

Once we remove that stuff, we find the power supply nestled in some foam and wrapped in bubble wrap. The cables you see there are for the PCI-E connections.

Taking a peek at the top, we see that XFX has placed the I/O Specification label here out of sight.

On the side we can see that there is some extra venting and that the standard style case isn't used. It will be interesting to see what we can find once we open this thing up.

The back of the unit uses square vent holes similar to that of what Antec uses. It also has a large on/off rocker switch and the AC input.

Checking the front, we can see all of the modular connections for the power supply. Also note that there is a switch to control the fan. This allows you to decide if you want to have the fan run all of the time or just let it be temperature controlled.

XFX uses quite a different design for the fan grill. While this may not be optimum for airflow, it does add some flair that we don't normally see in a power supply.

Also included are the AC input cable, black thumb screws to mount the unit and the user manual.
