PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



…the rear exhaust fan is a bit unusual. According to the hub sticker, it's an “Ultra Silent & Aerodynamic Golf-Surface Fan.” Hmmmm. Interesting.



On the opposite side we can see the native cables exiting the PSU through a grommetted hole and secured by a zip tie. I'm surprised at the number of power supplies that omit this small, but important, feature. Now, let's examine the rather large number of native (versus modular) cables on the CUQ-1200B.




The native cables consist of the 24-pin mobo cable, 2-4-pin CPU connectors, an 8-pin EPS connector, and 2 PCI-E 6-pinners. Also native to the PSU are a 3 connector SATA cable, a 3 connector 4-pin Molex cable and a fan cable for the extended-run fan feature that we'll discuss later.



The modular cables consist of two SATA power cables with 3 connectors each, two peripheral power cables with 3 Molex and 1 floppy connector each, two more 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI-E cables. All cables are sleeved with a black mesh material and secured with heatshrink tubing. I must admit, I've never seen a better sleeving job on any other PSU I've had through the lab. As mentioned in the specs, the pins and sockets are gold-plated to minimize power drop across the connections. Also included are the mounting screws and a heavy 14AWG wall power cord. Very nice, indeed!
