PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Cable connections are neatly laid out and there are plenty of them available. One would need a pretty robust system to use up all of these, but it's always better to have too many than not enough.
On the back is an on/off switch and power plug. The well ventilated mesh design should help allow heat to escape out the back of the unit.
The spec label lists some nice numbers but unlike a lot of recent high-end power supplies, there is only one +12V rail as opposed to two or even four. On most systems this shouldn't be an issue, however.
The motherboard connector is a solid 24-pin and can't be converted into a 20-pin, so be sure your motherboard will support it. Also included are 8-pin and 4-pin + 12V CPU connectors.
Various PCI-e connectors are included and there are enough of them to provide power to any current SLI or Crossfire setup. Two 8-pin and four 6-pin connectors are labeled so they won't be mistaken for a different cable.
