Corsair AX860 860-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review - Inside the Box

Corsair AX860 860-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review
Corsair's AX860 might lack the digital capabilities of its AXi series companion, but it still puts out some awesome numbers.

Inside the Box

As always, this Corsair power supply is very well packed. Even if mishandled during shipping, it is sure to arrive safely, unless your driver intentionally runs over the package with his truck.

The top houses the I/O specification label for the AX860 and gives us a look at the textured black finish of the AX860.

Both sides feature the same AX860 logo with the opposite being inverted so that it can be installed in your case however you would like it to be.

There isn't anything special going on in the back of the unit. Here we see the standard honeycomb mesh grill, AC input and on/off rocker switch.

Rotating things around to the front presents us with all of the modular connectors for the unit which are well labeled. Also present here is a switch that allows you to choose between semi-fanless operation or having the fan always operational.

The bottom presents us with the 120mm fan that cools the AX860.

Included with AX860 is a standard set of modular cables. I say standard because they offer additional kits of different colors... which we will be covering soon here as well.

Also included with the AX860 are ten zip ties, mounting screws, a case badge and AC input cord.

Rounding out the contents of the box is the warranty guide and user manual.
