In NZXT style, the C850 packaging is super clean and has just enough information to inform you of what you are getting inside. This applies to the front, at least as it is dominated by an image of the PSU with a three-quarter shot showing the visible side along with the fan grille. Above this, there is only C850 and ATX PSU. I must say simplifying things with a complete lack of ancillary iconography, or other marketing bluster is nice and refreshing. It also has an add-on effect of having a premium minimalist feel much like you get with Apple devices. Even if I despise apple, I give credit where due, and their packaging is the gold standard.

Moving to the rear is where things kick-off. NZXT includes all of the absent marketing in the back, where it shows some of the key features along with the specifications for the C850 PSU.

The two thinner sides of the package show five key features NZXT has selected and translated into eleven languages.

The flap used to open the C850 packaging is where we find the inventory control labels along with the compliance and certification iconography.

Opening the main flap, we see the second layer of cardboard flap in the purple NZXT color. This extra flap simply says, "Build the extraordinary," and that is in 10 languages, including the main English entry. Once the second flap was opened, you now see the manual and the silica gel packet atop the soft foam encapsulated halves which keep the PSU safe. Here we also see the purple NZXT bag that holds the modular cable set.
