Inside the Box




Upon cracking the box open, we are greeted with another box. This box sits on top of the power supply itself, and holds all of the modular cables.




Remove the cable box, and you find that the power supply is very well protected.




On top of the power supply, you can find the I/O specification label for the unit, and see the black textured finish of the XTR 550W power supply.




Both sides feature the same XTR logo, with the opposite being inverted.




About 80% of the back is meshed, so that as much air as possible can flow through. The AC input, and on/off rocker switch are also back here.




All of the connectors on the front are well labeled for the modular cables.




The octagonal fan grill is integrated into the case, and is a pleasant difference from the norm.




All cables are modular and of the flat ribbon type, with the exception of the 24-pin Main. It is sleeved with black nylon mesh.




Rounding out the contents of the box are the user manual, the AC power cord, and the mounting screws.
