Inside the Box

Inside we find that the power supply is protected on all sides with foam or the modular cables.

As always, the top gives us our first glimpse at the unit and a good view of the color. The unit is finished in a semi-gloss black.

Each side features a different logo. This one has the I/O specifications for the AZZA Platinum 1000W.

The other side simply says Platinum on it, but strangely isn't inverted in the event that it needs to be installed upside down in the bottom of a case.

The back has the standard honeycomb mesh exhaust grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch. Also present is a switch to select between modes for the fan. One mode is thermally managed while the other always on.

Towards the front we find the modular connectors. AZZA chose to go with red ones that contrast nicely with the black paint.

The bottom houses the 140mm red fan that actively cools the unit.

All modular cables are of the flat ribbon type.

Also included with the power supply are mounting screws, AC input cord and the user manual.
