The Packaging

Right away, we can see that Xigmatek is pushing towards getting you to go green. Not only is the cardboard box made of recycled material, but it is plain as well. We aren't quite sure where Xigmatek is going with the "Build a forest in your PC," especially since the unit is only 80Plus Bronze rated. At least you get a decent shot of the power supply and the wattage is stated on the front.

The back of the box features one of the best cable and connector availability diagrams that we have ever seen for a power supply.

One side of the power supply emphasizes going green again. Perhaps what caught our attention the most here is the claim of "high quality Japanese capacitor on the primary side." Primary side only? We'll have to take a look at what is going on there in a little bit.

The other side finally has some features about the power supply, but it appears as though they are less important than making sure we know about going green.

The bottom of the box finally gives us the I/O specifications of the power supply and a chart depicting the noise of the unit at various loads.
