The box is significantly larger than the vast majority of Thermaltake's offerings we've seen in the past. This is due, in part, to the larger size of the PSU itself, but also in response to the large nylon bag of cables included with the 1200W. There is also the power cord, mounting screws and a silicone gasket for noise isolation. The manual that comes with most PSU's is relatively innocuous, but this one actually has some useful information for the end user. We'll go over that a little later. The green sheet details Thermaltake's “Key 3 Spirit” concept and includes a case badge.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Thermaltake touts the finish as “a High-Tech Black coating,” but it's actually more of a gunmetal gray color. Whatever color it is, it's quite attractive with a metallic look. The 140mm cooling fan lives behind a stamped grill with the Thermaltake logo in the center.
The rear of the PSU is fairly conventional, with a honeycomb area for ventilation, and the socket for the power cord. The large red power switch lights up when the unit is powered on and due to the internal switching scheme, no voltage selector is necessary or present.
