Inside the Box

Once again we find a very well protected unit and even though our packaging was received with a bit of damage, none of the damage made it to the contents of the box.

The top of the unit gives us a good look at the semi-gloss black finish used on the power supply as well as the I/O specification label.

This side simply has the product identification label.

The other side is just the same except it has the warranty sticker.

Looking at the front, we find the same modular connectors as the 550W model. Everything is neatly labeled with the exception of rail distribution.

The back houses the standard honeycomb mesh grill. There is an on/off rocker switch present and you can see the anti-vibration material on the back as well. You'll need slightly longer than usual screws to mount the unit, which are included.

The bottom houses the 135mm SilentWings2 fan that actively cools the power supply.

Included with the power supply is a box of cables. All of the cables are fully sleeved.

Included with the unit is the overclocking key or OCK. This is what allows you to switch the power supply from using four individual 12V rails to a single 12V rail. Two different keys are included in case you prefer to just insert the key into the power supply and not utilize the expansion slot key.

Also included with the unit are the manual, AC power cord, zip-ties, Velcro cable ties, thumb screws and regular screws to mount the unit to the case.
