The retail box proudly displays the ZM600-HP's 3-year warranty, heatpipe cooling and NVIDIA SLI certification. There is sufficient packaging to allow this product to be shipped with no damage even during a rough christmas rush shipment.
Inside we find the PSU, manual, a ZM-MC1 fan connector and mounting screws.
The modular cables come bundled with hook-and-loop straps that can come in handy during installation.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The ZM600-HP has a matte-black finish and honeycomb grille work at the rear. Behind the grille, you can see the heatpipe assembly. We will talk more about the heatpipe assembly more further on in the review.
The included 120mm fan is targeted towards the consumer which warrants noise to be something they don't want to deal with. This fan is quiet, yet will supply more than enough air to cool this power supply sufficiently..
And on the one side you have the silver label which gives you an abbreviated version of the specs.
