Xigmatek Vector P700 700-Watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review
Xigmatek's Vector P700 PSU performs quite well and presents us with a feature that we've never seen before. Let's take a close look now.

Packaging

The front gives a great view of the Vector P700 unit. The design is quite different than what we are used to seeing. The fan grill, along with the rounded corners, and depressions in the case, give it a nice bit of flair.

On the back left side of the box, we are presented with the I/O specifications for both of the P series models, along with the protections, and a few features.

The other half of the back is filled with features and connectors available on the P700. I find it quite comical that the power supply has a "Futuristic design - full sense of science and technology." There is nothing better than getting a sense of something instead of the real thing.

There's a bit more marketing going on this side of the box. I've surely never seen a power supply with black iron mesh for a fan grill...

This side gives a good explanation of what the Reverse Thrust Fan Technology does for you. It essentially has the fan run backwards for the first 30 seconds the power supply is turned on, so that it can clear the unit of dust. Assuming that it works, it is quite a good idea. I suspect that the effect of this is minimal for those who never turn off their computers, as it will never get the opportunity to run the fan in reverse.
