PRODUCT PICTORAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The Mach 1 comes in an attractive, glossy gray finish, with contrasting rings around the silver connectors. From this angle, the sleeved main power cable is shown. The cable itself is protected around the exit hole by a plastic grommet. This is a feature I'd like to see on more PSU's.
The backside of the PSU houses the power jack, power switch, a small red switch to convert from 110v to 220v, and a punched out honeycomb grille for ventilation
The top of the PSU features a large, 140mm LED lit fan. Kingwin specifies two revisions in the instruction manual. The other revision uses a 120mm fan coupled with an 80mm exhaust fan. The 140mm revision should be quieter.
The Mach 1 uses military-type connectors for the power cabling. Visible in this picture are the two types- one 4-pin for PCIe use, and five 5-pin for all of the other cabling.
Connectors are aplenty, with a couple of neat twists I've never seen before. All cables are sleeved in a multi-color mesh which is thicker than most I've run across.

.both four and eight pin motherboard connectors.
