In the Box
Opening up the box, we see that the power supply is nicely packaged in foam to prevent any damage to the unit. This is the common way most high-end power supplies are packaged and this is no exception. Over all, the packaging appears up to the task of getting the power supply to you in one, non-dented piece.
Now, I may be a little old school, but I like some relevant information in the included manual. You know, the power distribution on the rails, where the cables go, the temperature rating and a summary of the power supply features. This manual simply includes some generic install instructions that work for any power supply. So, if you want to know anything about your power supply once it is in your system, you better keep the box, especially considering where the label is placed. A quick query to BFG and they indicated that all the power supply information is available online, but will not be published until release.
I expected a thicker 14 gauge power cable considering the power supply capacity, but instead it only includes your standard 18 gauge power cable rated for 10 amps. Doing that math and that is 120 times 10 for 1200 Watts, just enough. While not a deal breaker, it seems a little odd to have such a nice power supply and a skinny little power cable sticking out of the back. This will work just fine, but still, it would have been nice to include. BFG did see fit to include a few velcro cable ties to tidy things up in your system. That was a welcome touch.
Now, let's take a closer look at the BFG EX-1200.
