FSP does a great job of packing the unit as it is padded on all sides.

The I/O specification label can be found on the top of the unit.

The FSP logo can be found on one side of the power supply.

The other side also displays the FSP logo. Notice that both sides have a little additional venting.

Things are slightly different than what we are used to seeing back here. Other than FSP's "Arrow Dynamic" design and the AC on/off rocker switch, we also have a heavy duty C20 inlet instead of the standard C14 that we usually see with power supplies.

Towards the front, we find the nine modular connectors available. Unfortunately the fourth PCI-E cable shares the same output as the second EPS12V connector. This is something you need to be very aware of when considering this power supply for your system.

Moving to the bottom we find the 135mm fan that cools the AU-1200PRO.

Eight modular cables are included with the power supply as well as two cables meant only for fans.

If you look closely, you'll notice that the cables are sleeved to be flat instead of round. This will help when routing behind the motherboard and helps provide a really clean look. They are also sleeved different than the natively wired cables, as those use the standard mesh sleeving.

 

Also included with the AU-1200PRO are four thumbscrews for mounting the unit, an AC input cord, several Velcro cable ties, a case badge and the user manual.
