Everything is packed in tightly and well protected with at least a half inch of foam or more.

The top of the power supply houses the I/O specification label and gives us a shot at the matte black finish on the power supply.

Both sides feature the same logo, just inverted on the opposite side.

On the front we find a set of fully modular connectors. The peripheral and PCI-E cables are numbered and should make identification of them in the Corsair Link software easy.

The back features a standard honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch. It is as unobstructed as possible since the AX860i logo area is already blocked off by the PFC inductor inside.

On the bottom we find the 120mm fan that cools the power supply. The grill is designed to blend in with the enclosure and still provided maximum airflow.

All cables fully sleeved with nylon mesh or of the flat ribbon type.

The included USB dongle allows you to connect the power supply directly to your motherboard. You can also connect it directly to a Corsair Link Commander if you are utilizing one.
