PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The PSU has a glossy, jet-black finish that Mr. Bones finds irresistible.
A label displays an abbreviated list of specifications and output data. The UL designation tells us that “ACBEL POLYTECH,” a Taiwanese company that I know nothing about manufactured this power supply. The thermally controlled 120mm fan lives behind a glossy black fan grille with the Cooler Master logo emblazoned in the center.
All cables are fully sleeved in a black mesh material, secured with zip-ties and heatshrink. The wires all exit a hole in the case that is missing a grommet. Personally, I like to see one in this location to minimize the chance of a short, and the zip-tie that secures the bundle will likely do its job just fine, but looks a bit cheesy.
The rear of the 750W is pretty plain with the mesh ventilation panel only broken up by the power socket, switch and the red warning LED.
Most PSUs I've seen have a 20/24-pin connector allowing the last group of four pins to be removed for older motherboard compatibility. Not so with the Cooler Master 750W and I can't fault it for this. This PSU is clearly overkill for any 20-pin board. Flanking the main connector are the 4-pin and 8-pin mobo +12V auxiliary power connectors.
