Corsair's packaging is nearly identical for all of their power supplies, and the RM1000x is no exception. Basic features and a good shot of the unit are present on the front of the box.


The left side talks about the build quality along with efficiency and noise charts. Note that the unit runs silently until about 40% load and then kicks on the fan.


The other half of the back provide dimensions, more photos of the physical unit, and the I/O specifications.


This side of the box provides cable and connector availability with length.


The other side speaks of the efficiency of the unit itself.


Both ends feature the same summary information that is found on the rest of the box and in multiple languages.

Inside the Box


The internal packaging is the same as all other Corsair units that we have seen. Thick foam surrounds the power supply on all sides, and the extra space in the box is take up by the modular cables and accessories. It is very well protected.


As is usual for Corsair, the unit is finished in a textured black and the I/O specification label is on top of the power supply.


Both sides of the RM1000x feature the same logo with the opposite being inverted. The beveled edges of the power supply are a nice touch when building a system and just makes installation easier.


The bottom of the unit features the wire mesh grill that blends in with the bottom of the unit. Here we can see the gray 135mm fan that provides the active cooling for the RM1000x.


Flipping to the back side of the unit, we find that ventilation is provided via standard honeycomb mesh cutouts. There is a heavy duty on/off rocker switch for the AC input. Corsair also places a sticker that must be removed prior to powering on the unit that lets you know the fan will not operate until the unit reaches a moderate load, thus keeping the unit silent until it gets warm.


Rounding out the images of the unit itself is a picture of the front. All cables are fully modular and are clearly labeled for easy connectivity.


All cables for the RM1000x are either fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon type and black in color.


Accessories included with the unit include an AC power cord, mounting screws, cable ties, and a Corsair case badge.


Finally, we have the user's manual and warranty guide.
