Inside the Box

The V850 is very well packed, so you can be sure that it is going to arrive without damage, unless the package is severely mishandled.

Looking at the top of the power supply, we find the I/O specification label as well as the serial number for the unit. We also catch a glimpse of the textured semi-gloss black finish on the unit.

Both sides feature the same logos with the opposite being inverted so that it can be installed in any orientation inside a case.

The back contains standard stuff as well with the honeycomb mesh grill, AC input and on/off rocker switch.

All of the modular connectors are labeled on the front of the unit. Also present is the Cooler Master logo, just for some added bling.

Flipping things to the bottom reveals the 135mm fan that cools the unit. It is surrounded with a brushed silver bezel to make it stand out a tiny bit.

All of the modular cables are either fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon type.

Finishing the contents of the box is the AC input cord, mounting screws and user manual.
