PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
Despite the excellent finish, this label is what will be visible in most cases. It's covered by a protective plastic film that can be removed after installation.
The embossed label on the top of the unit has an abbreviated version of the impressive specs.
Ok, here's the important part. This is, after all the 850W Cable Management PSU, right? This panel, with the cables, gives the 850W its modularity. The 8-pin connector is unique, and the PCIE connectors are color coded, but the user will have to exercise caution when connecting the molex/floppy and SATA cables, as they are identical. (These may be interchangeable, but I have no direct knowledge of this and I don't recommend you try it.)
The silicone gasket slips easily over the rear of the 750W and will minimize the transfer of any vibration noise from the PSU to the case, but it blocks some of the ventilation openings. The power socket sits rather high up on the rear panel, and may be a tight fit in some cases. The customary four mounting screws are included.
