So then, here we have the packaging so you know what to look for in the stores. The PSU inside is packaged nicely and protected in a carton.
The PSU is delivered with some simple basics like power cable manual and screws. As stated, this is a modular model. The PSU is nicely packaged in a soft cloth, the cables inside pouches.
After unpacking, not a dent, scratch or smudge was on the unit. Rough matte finish, nice black theme. The PSU is ready for nearly all upcoming CPU & GPU generations and offers a superb capacity 12V rails. There is one single rail allowing 83 Amp / 996 Watt.
The PSU complies to EPS12V PSU design guides for compatibility & ZERO LOAD Design for Hybrid Mode functions & C6 state functions. Meaning powered off or in sleep mode it should consume less then one watt.
At the front and top side we spot a nice honeycomb air vent; it allows for optimal airflow running through the PSU, cooling down its components and keeping them nicely efficient. Also, obviously we spot the power connector and on/off switch. Here an overview of all cables you receive. You can hook up to six PCIe Graphics connectors in a 6/8 configuration.
