PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Another feature unique to the Toughpower XT line is the S.P.T. indicator LEDs that display the Standby, PG signal, and Temperature status of the power supply. Unless you have a window in your chassis, you won't be able to monitor these LEDs, and I'm dubious of the need, or even the ultimate usefulness of this feature. I suppose it doesn't do any harm and may ease troubleshooting chores.
Modular sockets are clearly labeled and the 20/24-pin ATX cable is the only native cable on the XT. This cable isn't sleeved all the way into the case, but there is a nice grommet here to prevent any wire abrasion in this area.
The obligatory label proudly displays, along with the more mundane specifications, the 80PLUS Bronze rating, 5-year warranty and the ATX and EPS certifications.
