The PSU is shipped in a matte black cardboard box with a protective plastic film which was removed to avoid glare in the photos. The back of the packaging has a short description of the PSU model, as well as two graphs showing the PSU’s fan curve and efficiency overload.

The left side has a description as well as a photo of the cables included with this PSU and also functions as the locking tab that keeps the packaging close.
Inside Cooler Master has a single piece of foam to cushion the top of the PSU during shipping. Removing this foam will show the user guide, power cable, mounting screws and the bundle of cables attached to the PSU.
The PSU itself ships much like every other PSU on the market, protected by dense foam and inside a plastic bag to keep dust and foreign particles out of the unit.
The cables are bundled with a single twist tie and use a black 18 AWG wire with a very easy to form jacket, which makes straightening out the cables much easier. All but the 24 pin feature a fused black system for the cables, where the 24 pin is the only cable that has a mesh over the black cables to keep the sets neater and out of the way.
The left side of the PSU list all the compliance certificates, the 80 PLUS efficiency rating (GOLD) as well as the model number with a list of the voltages. One thing I am very happy to see with this PSU is the restraint on primary colors, other than the gold for the rating. For some this is not a big deal as PSU shrouds are normal now with most cases however for those select cases with the PSU exposed, this helps keep a neutral aesthetic.
The area of the PSU that has the inlet for the cables is solid, normally this area will have some sort of perforation but as this is a non-modular PSU it is kept solid to prevent any heat from seeping back into the chassis. The 120mm fan at the top of the unit is offset and pulls air in through the mesh outside panel and out the bottom of the chassis. Note, the general rule of PSUs is to have the fan face down to push air outside the case.Article Index: >> « INTRODUCTION | MWE GOLD 750 WATT FULLY MODULAR »
