Packaging and Bundle

 

The PowerXtreme 1200W unit is supplied in a large cardboard box. There is minimal artwork, with the PSU’s maximum output rating covering pretty much most of the front side. The pink colour of the box perhaps isn’t the most appealing choice since the vast majority of the consumers are going to be males. Information about the features and specifications can be found at the rear of the box. Everything is very well secured inside the package and protected by thick Styrofoam pieces. Inside you will find a well written manual, an AC power cable and three cable management wrap ties, which you will certainly need given the number and length of the unit’s cables.
