Inside the Box

The power supply is packed tightly inside the box with a little bit of bubble wrap to protect it.

The I/O specification label is located on top, along with the serial number. The CS650M features a black finish that is somewhere between a semi-gloss black, and matte black.

Both sides have the same logos on them, with the opposite side being inverted.

We have the on/off rocker switch, along with AC input in the back. The honeycomb mesh grill takes up the rest of the space in the back of the power supply.

There aren't too many modular connectors with the CS650M, but the ones that are there are clearly labeled.

The bottom of the power supply houses the 120mm fan with black wire grill to actively cool the power supply.

All modular cables are of the flat ribbon type.

Inside of the box are an AC power cord, a warranty pamphlet, and a safety pamphlet.
