Inside the Box

This is just how we found the unit packed inside the box. There was no foam protecting the top half of the PSU. It simply sits in a cradle of foam for the bottom inch of the unit.

The top of the unit gives us a great shot at the matte black finish used on the power supply. The only information here is the serial number and the QA stickers.

The I/O specification label can be found on one side of the unit for the Centauro 1000W unit.

The other side simply has the Centauro series logo plastered on it.

Turning the unit a bit more, we find the standard honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch present.

Spinning it some more brings us to the front which shows us the modular connections. The pin out for all of the connectors is labeled here.

Flipping things over reveals the 140mm fan that actively cools the Centauro 1000W power supply.

All modular cables are fully sleeved with nylon mesh.

Package contents also include the AC power cable, user manual, zip ties and mounting screws.
