The ST65F-G come packed with some bubble wrap to protect it with all of the accessories segregated by some cardboard.

SilverStone's image is stamped into the top of the enclosure. The unit features SilverStone's standard smooth semi-gloss black finish.

One side of the ST65F-G is blank, while the other features the I/O specifications of the power supply.

There isn't anything special going on with the front of the unit. The sticker clearly labels all of the connections and the blue connectors correspond with the PCI-E cables.

The back doesn't have anything out of the ordinary either. There is the standard honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch.

Part of the reason for the power supply being so small is that it utilizes a 120mm fan.

All of the cables are fully sleeved with the exception of about the first inch of each end. This helps greatly with the flexibility of the cables.

Aside from the standard mounting screws and AC input cord, SilverStone throws in some reusable Velcro cable ties, zip ties and thumb screws as well.

Two manuals are included with the ST54F-G. The one on the left is more specific to the ST65F-G, while the one on the right is more of a generic and universal manual.
