As you would expect, the same packaging is used for the new 850W power supply. On the front, we find the 80 PLUS logo has been updated to reflect the Gold rating the new units are rated for.

The left half of the back gives lists of both technical and I/O specifications.

The other half of the back explains more about the dual thermal control system. You can set the fan mode to Silent Mode or Normal Mode. Normal mode ensures that the fan is always running and thermally controlled. Silent mode forces the fan off until the unit reaches 50% load at which it then becomes thermally controlled. This is made easy by the selector switch on the back of the power supply.

One side of the box contains a great list of cables and their length and the other is blank.

Both top and bottom mimic the front of the box.
