Accessories & Documentation
Removing the top bag and unpacking it we find the user guide. The user guide is a multi-language reference for connector types and pinout. One thing I do like and I'm sure modders will share the sentiment is that Fractal includes a direct PSU modular connector pinout. This means that you can create your own custom sleeved cables as you have the pinout for both endpoints of the connectors.
There is also a bright orange sheet advising users to contact technical support if any issues are observed rather than merely returning the product. This is quite smart as many times; small problems may be quickly fixed or diagnosed reducing downtime. There is also Velcro cable ties and screws to mount the PSU included.
This is the cable pouch which comes with the new ION+ PSU's, and I admittedly like it. It's not much different than most PSUs included pouches, but it's nice to have a bag to keep your cables in when not needed. So that you don't end up with a massive box of random PSU cables as using the wrong one can spell disaster for your PSU or components.
Here we have all of the included cables for the ION+ 860P. You will notice that all are black flat cables except for the 24-pin which has a braided sheath around the bundle.
Here we see the connector quantity included with the ION+ cabling. There are plenty of connectors while still offering four peripheral connectors or what many call 4-pin MOLEX.
Here we have the stated cable lengths. I like that the 4+4 is 700mm in length so that if you have a more massive tower or specific routing, you have a bit more room than usual to manage the EPS cable effectively.
