Upon opening the box I was greeted with a mass of wires all sheathed in black braid so lets take it out and have a proper look. Taking the contents out of the box the main body of the PSU is wrapped in bubble wrap and the cables are neatly bound, there is also a smaller box that contains the mains cable and screws and a small manual.
The case of the psu is practically mirror like so be careful not to leave fingerprints all over it. The PSU comes fitted with a 120mm fan so it should be fairly quiet. This PSU has a seemingly endless number of connectors on it that can be connected to virtually any motherboard, a lot of drives (upto12) and dual graphics cards
As you can tell from the picture above the main motherboard is the 20+4 style, as seems to be the norm now, so it will fit old and new motherboards and the Molex connectors are the squeeze to remove type so no struggling to unplug the drives.
Again the specifications of the voltage rails appear on the side of the PSU so you can show them off once its fitted into the case, assuming the case has a window that is.
On the back of the psu we find the mains inlet and power switch, the hot air is vented out of the psu easily as the whole of the rear is one big grill. Now we have had a look over the PSU it is time for the important stuff, install and testing.
