PRODUCT WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
As you can see here the cables are all sleeved all the way into the PSU itself. This is a sign of attention to detail and gives a good impression as to the workmanship of the product.
There are 2 leads like the one shown above that each have 3 S-ATA connectors on them allowing up to 6 S-ATA drives to be connected natively. Should you require more you could always use a converter on one of the molex leads.
The molex connectors are in a similar configuration to the S-ATA connectors except there is also a floppy power connector on the lead. Again there are 2 of these leads allowing for up to 6 molex powered devices and 2 floppy devices (or older graphics adapters).
Here you can see one of the 2 the 6 pin PCIe power connectors. The provided adapters allow these to be used for 8 pin adapters as well as 6 pin. This is a nice inclusion that will make life just a little easier on any builders using this unit. I noticed that the connectors were black as opposed to red like the other connectors. This is a nice touch and will help prevent confusion during installation.
The main power connector is your standard 20+4 pin. The pink look is due to the flash of the camera, the connector is the same color as the other power leads on the unit.
