Inside the Box

Opening the box we find things seem to be well packed.

The top features the I/O specification. We thought that the unit was scratched during shipping, but we later found that the unit had multiple warranty stickers on it and had been in someone else's hands before ours.

The side view gives a good shot of the finish on the power supply. The two different textures between the top and the bottom pieces of the PSU enclosure add to the aesthetics of the power supply.

The other side features inverted text in case the power supply is installed in the bottom of the case.

The back is standard with the honeycomb venting as well as the AC input and on/off rocker switch.

Something we don't normally see on the front of a power supply is more venting. The modular connectors are labeled very well.

The bottom gives us a great shot at the 140mm fan that cools the power supply, but doesn't do it justice as to how great this power supply looks. It really feels like a piece of art in your hands.

All modular cables are sleeved and flat which should provide for easier routing and increased airflow within the case.

Also included with the power supply is the user manual, mounting screws, case badge and AC input cord.
