Inside the Box

Seasonic takes great care in packing the X-1050. The unit is placed inside a felt bag then protected by a half inch of foam on all sides.

Seasonic keeps the top of the X-1050 completely blank.

On one side we find a generic X-series logo.

The other side is contains the I/O specification label.

On the back of the X-1050 we see the standard honeycomb mesh grill for ventilation along with a heavy duty on//off rocker switch and the AC input.

Moving to the front, we can see that the unit is fully modular. Note the fan switch on the front of the unit. It will allow you to set the fan on the power supply to be passive or not when the unit is under 25C in temperature.

More black and gold is continued on the bottom of the unit. Here we have a large honeycomb mesh grill as opposed to the usual wire grill we usually see.

All of the modular cables included are sleeved almost as far as they can be.

Also included is a user manual, Velcro cable ties, zip ties, mounting screws, a case badge and information about the warranty.
