Inside the Box

The packaging for the Tauro series from Xigmatek certainly leaves something to be desired. The only protection the unit receives is from the very thin bubble wrap surrounding the unit. There is no foam inside the box and you can see the damage that the connectors have done to the back and side of the box. It is very obvious that the power supply won't be able to take much abuse during shipping and handling.

The top of the unit gives us a great shot at the matte black finish used on the power supply.

One side of the unit simply has the Tauro logo stuck on it.

The I/O specification label can be found on the other side of the power supply.

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 and reveals that things are rather brand. Not that some of sleeving extends all the way inside the power supply and some stops just short. We aren't sure why this is the case as it would just take a little more care to make sure it extended all the way inside the unit.

Flipping things over reveals the 135mm fan that actively cools the Tauro 700W power supply.

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