 Corsair AX760 Power Supply Review

Corsair supplies the AX760 in a typical, well designed cardboard box. They opted for a dark theme with glossy red accents, which is identical for all of the AX series products. The rear of the box is littered with information regarding the unit's main features and performance.

In the box we found the power supply secured between two thick pieces of polyethylene packing foam and wrapped inside a black cloth pouch. Considering the thickness of the cardboard box walls, it should be next to impossible to cause damage to this unit during transport.

The bundle of the AX760 is very basic, which can be easily rated as poor for a high performance power supply. Inside the box we only found some cable ties, a case sticker, a black and white manual, the A/C power cable and four black screws.

Corsair supplies the modular cables of this power supply inside a reusable black nylon bag. Inside the bag we found four PCIe cables (6 connectors), two CPU 12V cables, the ATX cable, two Molex to Floppy disk adaptors, three cables for up to 12 total SATA connectors and two cables for up to 8 total Molex connectors. All of the wires are black and the PCIe, CPU and ATX cables are also sleeved.

Those of you that are asking, "why make the ATX connector modular when you are going to use it no matter what?", the answer is simple. If the cables were to be hardwired, they would have to enter the unit and be soldered directly on the voltage supply lines. We will later see that by using a connector, Corsair moved the entire distribution of the power supply on the vertical PCB which is holding the connectors, increasing both the efficiency of the unit and the room available to install even more fancy features.
