Inside the Box

After taking the top layer of foam padding out of the box, this is what you are left with. Lots of foam doesn't always mean things are safe if it isn't in the right places.

The power supply is finished in a semi-gloss black and as you can see, it is quite easy to leave fingerprints on the unit.

As was said above, lots of foam doesn't do any good if it isn't in the right places. Thankfully just pushing on the raised area was enough to straighten things out. If I had bought this from Newegg or somewhere else, I wouldn't be happy to have received it in this condition.

The other side presents us with the product logo. There is no I/O specification label on the unit that we received.

Moving to the back, we find the standard honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and heavy duty on/off rocker switch. Also present is an unlabeled switch to control when the fan activates.

If you needed more confirmation that this is a Super Flower based unit, here are the cube connectors with rubber covers that we've seen on their power supplies for quite some time now.

Cooling is provided via the 140mm fan with wire mesh grill.

All modular cables are of the flat ribbon type.

Also included with the power supply is the mounting screws and AC input cord.

Rounding out the contents of the box are the warranty card and the user manual.
