PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The first thing that stood out about this PSU was the dark gray mirror finish. It has a very classy look and will look great inside a windowed case.
A large 135mm fan takes up almost the whole bottom area of the PSU. It adjusts speed accordingly depending on how much heat is being generated by power consumption.
Notice something missing here? There's no on/off switch. Instead, there's an LED next to the plug that lights up green when full power is being delivered and red when not. Presumably, red is indicative of when it's okay to work inside the case although I'd still feel better removing the main connector from the motherboard first.
There is a spec label on both sides of the unit showcasing some impressive numbers. Additionally, there are two power transformers inside as opposed to a single one. This is a good thing as it will help distribute power more efficiently.
There are a ton of long cables on this PSU but unfortunately it is not a modular design. All the cables are have nylon sleeving but stop short just before the end.
