The front of the packaging shows the dagger pro along with a background of digital camouflage, so we must assume this is the theme of the Dagger Pro SFX units. It, of course, contains several icons of note, including a 7-year warranty. One particular interest is the dual CPU power connectors, which means that you can hook up two EPS connectors should you have a high draw platform. That is admittedly a strange addition being SFX is made for small form factors.

The rear of the package has a few of the previously listed features form the website and also the dual CPU power connectors listed again. It also has several inventory control barcodes in place here and a myriad of certification logos. The left-hand side has a single rail listing, which I find the chosen pictographic representation amusing as a multi-rail PSU. It is shown as only powering your GPU partially (50%), which is not really how multi-rail PSU's work, but we will stack that one up as more marketing stuff.

The smaller side of the package shows the cables the Dagger Pro comes with along with a listing below it. This is designed to show how many connectors of each type are included. There is also a checkbox for what AC input cable type is included.

The opposing side shows the output table along with the acoustic and efficiency charts we explained previously.

The lid of the packaging that you see before opening has the white California prop 65 decal as we saw on the Hydro G unit we looked at previously. This is just a notice that components within the PSU or included may contain harmful chemicals as most electronics do. The lesson for today, don't eat solder.

Opening the packaging and the Dagger Pro SFX greets us encased on three sides by Polystyrene style foam with the bundle of cables and accessories sitting adjacent to it.
