Inside the Box

Once we pull the foam off the top of the contents, we are left with this. Everything is well protected, just as you'd hope for.

On the top we can see the I/O specification label as well as the rough black texture covering power supply.

Both sides have the same logos on them along with a small amount of additional cooling in the form of three vent areas.

We have the on/off rocker switch along with AC input in the back. Note that this power supply requires a C19 style cable. It is far from necessary, but my guess is that it was cheaper to keep this the same between the 1200W and 1000W models instead of changing it for each one.

Everything is well labeled on the front of the power supply.

The bottom of FSP's power supplies are always different than the competition. You'll either love it or hate it. The black 135mm fan cools this unit.

All of the modular cables come wrapped with reusable Velcro cable ties.

There are a few more goodies in the box such as some more Velcro ties, mounting screws, case badge, and of course the C19 power cable.

Also present in the box is a user manual and a warranty card.
