Inside the Box




You can't really ask for better protection than this. The Power Zone 850W is cushioned on all sides.




Looking at the top, we find the I/O specification label and can see the matte black finish on the unit. The power supply also features their rubber isolators on each end which reduce vibrations and noise associated with the unit being mounted in the case metal to metal.




Both sides feature the same design featuring the Power Zone logo. The opposite side is inverted.




We find the AC input and on/off rocker switch on the back of the power supply. We also find that rubber isolator on the back isn't just around the edges, but also goes across the back of the unit. This blocks roughly 50% of the airflow out of the back.




Turning around to the front of the unit, we find that all of the connectors are clearly labeled and easily accessible.




be quiet! uses their standard fan grill on the bottom and it is always nice to see as it is a little difference and feels like it belongs with the Silent Wings fan.




All of the modular cables are fully sleeved. There are four bundles of cables inside the box and each bundle is wrapped with reusable Velcro straps that you can utilize for cable management inside your case.




Rounding out the contents of the box are long mounting screws, zip ties, the AC input cord and user manual.
