Cougar PowerX 550-Watt 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Review (Page 3)

Inside the Box


The PowerX series of power supplies certainly have some no frills packaging. Aside from the bubble wrap, little protects the unit from the outside world.


The top is a blank slate and shows the black finish on half of the power supply.


This side gives us the I/O specification label and the beautiful red/orange metallic color in high gloss that covers the rest of the unit.


This side of the power supply features nothing more than the Cougar logo.


The other side is inverted and features Cougar logo.


Flipping things to the back we find nothing more than the standard honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch.


The front presents is rather bland, but it does have a few vent holes for excess heat.


Normally I try to take a picture straight down, but I wanted to make sure I captured how the color changes depending on the angle and I think this is a very good representation of just how red and orange the unit can be at the same time. Present here is the 120mm fan that cools the PowerX 500W PSU.


Included with the PowerX 500W is an AC input cord, four zip ties, mounting screws and user manual.
