Stickers with the gold-ish series logo occupy the sides of the product, while the sticker with the unit’s detailed electrical specifications can be found at the top of the power supply.

The chassis is about 19cm deep which means that it exceeds the ATX specification standards, even if only slightly. If it is meant to be installed inside a small or desktop computer case with limited space for the power supply, the end user will have to make sure that this product will fit.

The rear is entirely perforated to allow for the air pushed by the cooling fan to escape towards the outside of the case. Thortech have opted for the typical honeycomb design. A simple on/off switch and a standard 3-DIN A/C power plug can be seen at the rear.
