The PSU comes in a bit of bubble-wrap - not brilliant protection, however, mine came undamaged, so we can assume yours will too. To be fair to CoolerMaster, I've had PSUs delivered before which came in static-foam, but somehow managed to get damaged in transit, so no particular method is 100% fool-proof yet - maybe bubble-wrap is the way to go!
The GX 750w comes with an instructional booklet, Power-Cord (in my case a UK one), some screws and a Limited Warranty card.
The same name, logo and colour scheme that I liked on the packaging box, is carried through to the PSU itself - it really does look good here (shame my case forces an up-side-down mounting of PSUs!
On the other side of the PSU, we can see that it features a power-chart, indicating the various maximum outputs - all of which are quite hefty - max 12v - 720watts! Mental!
It's also worth mentioning at this point, that the likeness between this and my Seasonic 430w PSU is even greater than the size of the exterior packaging - it is also basically the same size. This MONSTER 750w power supply is in fact the same size as my 430w PSU. It really is well packaged for such a powerful piece of kit!
It really is a striking design for a power supply. It's quite simple, and somewhat industry-looking. I like!
The rear of the PSU is - as always - a mesh, allowing hot air to disapparate (with the assistance of that 120mm fan).
And, as always, the base is pretty boring looking! However, it does have a really nice paint job - a sort of gun-metal black.
As mentioned earlier - connectors include:
- 1 x 20+4 Pin MB
- 1 x 4+4 Pin CPU 12V
- 4 x 6+2 PIn PCI-e
- 6 x SATA
- 3 x 4Pin Peripherial
- 1 x 4 Pin floppy
Plenty of connectors to keep an entire mountain of kit going. However, two negatives I must add - all these connectors are bound to be trouble - especially if you have a smallish case. But my main concern - why do we still have Floppy connectors? Some manufactures have stopped including them, and instead packaged the PSU with a 4pin to floppy connector - why doesn't everyone do this? Or instead, why don't we bin the floppy all together!
