Inside the Box
We get the red carpet treatment when opening the box. Just as it should be with anything you buy, the manual is presented up front. Fractal Design is also nice enough to let you know they include some cable management for you.
For once we have packaging that is thought out, and isn't more cramped than a Ford Fiesta with four bodies in the trunk. Nothing shows any signs of damage despite the UPS drop test.
The top of the unit has the Fractal Design logo stamped in it and we can see the semi-gloss finish on the power supply.
This side of the power supply features nothing more than the Fractal Design logo as well.
The other side is inverted and features the I/O specifications of the power supply.
Flipping things to the back, we find nothing more than the standard honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch.
The front presents us with the modular connections, which are labeled nicely, and there is some extra venting as well. I'm not normally a fan of this, but as we transition from power supplies that do more with the daughterboard which has voltage regulation and more ripple suppression, it is becoming necessary to have somewhere for the extra heat to vent to.
The high contrast white fan is a nice touch to the unit to help it stand out. It is rubber mounted to reduce vibration and noise.
Included with the Newton R3 1000W is a rolled up bag of modular cables, cable ties and mounting screws.
Rounding out the contents of the box is an AC input cable, user manual, and card stating that the fan will not spin until the unit gets hot enough to warrant its use.
