Inside the Box

Inside we find that the power supply is protected on all sides with foam. On the left are the natively wired cables and the AC input cord and the right has a bag that contains the modular cables.

As usual, the top features the I/O specification label and gives us a look at the matte black finish used on the SilentNight 500W.

Both sides feature as much ventilation as possible and allow air to move freely around the unit.

The back is perforated just as much. Aside from the AC input and on/off rocker switch, there is nothing obstructing the airflow. You can also get a good view of the passive heat sink that sits on the top of the unit in place of the fan.

The front provides even more perforation for ventilation. The four modular connectors come covered with rubber dust caps and two have been removed for the purpose of taking the picture.

Moving to the top of the power supply, you can tell that the black anodized heatsink has a few holes in it to increase the ability for heat to leave the unit on areas that can't have a heat sink attached to them.

Included with the power supply are four modular cables of the flat ribbon type.
