Hardware & Documentation
The modular cable set comes in an XPG branded satchel, which is something we have seen before. The quality is excellent and not thin fibrous material, as we have seen with some other units. You can rest assured that any spare cables can be stowed away in your spare parts are or drawer ion this bag without fear of tearing over time.
The modular cable sets are identical for the 750W, and 850W units we have on hand. The cable array is as follows:
- Main AC input cable
- 24-pin ATX cable
- 2x 4+4 EPS CPU power cables
- 4x PCIe Cables (6 total 6+2-pin connections)
- PATA peripheral lead (4 total PATA connections)
- 3x SATA peripheral leads (12 total SATA connections)
The cable set it stout for this level of supply. One concern is the amount of 6+2 connectors, which could allow up to triple GPUs on not only an 850 but also a 750W supply. For most use cases, this would be fine, but I do fear that in a heavily loaded environment such as a workstation deployment, this could easily reach an overload scenario for the PSU. We will test the limit of both of these supplies in the testing portion of the review.
The manual is generic for the Core Reactor gold series PSU's, so it covers all three units (650W, 750W, and 850W). The manual is a multi-page booklet and comes along with a sticker sheet that we have seen included before with XPG chassis in the past.
