Inside the Box

Inside the box we find the user manual and box of modular cables sitting on top of the power supply.

Once we remove that stuff, we find the power supply nestled in some foam and wrapped in bubble wrap. The cables you see there are for the PCI-E connections.

On top of the unit we find the I/O specification label and serial number.

On the side we can see that there is some extra venting and that the standard style case isn't used. It is identical to that of the 1000W version.

The other side is the same with the exception of the label being inverted so that it can be installed in both the top and bottom of the case.

On the back we find the same square mesh grill for venting the hot air that we saw with the 1000W unit. Also located back here are the AC input and on/off rocker switch.

Checking the front, we can see all of the modular connections for the power supply. Also note that there is a switch to control the fan. This allows you to decide if you want to have the fan run all of the time or just let it be temperature controlled.

XFX uses quite a different design for the fan grill. While this may not be optimum for airflow, it does add some flair that we don't normally see in a power supply.

All of the cables are modular and the only difference between the 1250W and 1000W models is the extra PCI-E cable.

Also included are the AC input cable, black thumb screws to mount the unit and the user manual.
