PSU Review – Corsair AX1200 1200W 80Plus Gold
Corsair supplies the AX1200 unit inside a large and very sturdy cardboard package. The package is very subtle for a product of this class, there is little artwork but you can find a wealth of information about the unit itself at the back side of box.
Inside the package, the power supply is very well secured between Styrofoam pieces and is enclosed inside a black pouch instead of a standard bubble bag, which pouch you can reuse for any purpose you see fit.
The bundle is fairly simple and straightforward, perhaps even poor for such a highly rated product. We expected to find at least a few cable straps. On the other hand, except from the black pouch which protects the PSU and the bag which contains the modular cables, you will only receive a standard A/C power cable, several small cable ties, black screws, a case badge with the company logo and a well written manual. It is however noteworthy to mention that most of the cables, the SATA and peripheral power cables that is, are not sleeved but they are ‘flat’, entirely black cables. The thicker cables are still all-black but they are also sleeved.
