Inside the Box

Packaging is rather skimpy on the inside of the box. Here we see that the power supply is only protected by the box and a layer of bubble wrap. Modular connectors on one side and the power cable on the back side make the unit fit snugly inside the box, though.

VisionTek has a rather glossy finish on the unit and as you can see from the picture above, it is rather susceptible to showing fingerprints. On the top of the unit, we find the serial number.

One side of the power supply displays the I/O specification label.

VisionTek chose to leave one side of the power supply blank.

This power supply has a very open back and appears to allow for more airflow than the typical honeycomb mesh that we are used to seeing.

Eight modular connections are available on the front, but there are only six modular cables included. If you were inclined, you could come up with additional cables provided you weren't already maxing the power supply out.

If you think that the fan looks a bit smaller than usual, it is because you are correct. While most power supplies utilize a 140mm fan on the bottom to provide airflow for the unit, the VisionTek 700W Modular PSU makes use of a 120mm fan instead.

Included with the unit are six modular cables. Only the PCI-E connectors are blue while everything else is black.

VisionTek makes sure that you're covered on the cable management. Also included with the unit are five Velcro cable ties, two zip ties, mounting screws, AC power cord and user manual.
