The Pylon 750 comes in a red box with a photo of the PSU with its fan grille on top. Around the back, you will find a scheme of the PSU's dimensions and information on the cable configuration, as well as the power specifications.


XPG used eco-friendly packaging protection, which is a nice move. The bundle includes a quick-start guide, some stickers, and screws for mounting the PSU onto the chassis. You will also get a power cord with a grounding wire.


As per usual, you will find the power switch and AC receptacle at the front.


The power specifications label is on the bottom. The stickers on the sides don't look nice at all.


This is a non-modular PSU, but all the cables are sleeved black; it would have been nice if they were flat, too.


Measuring 140 mm deep, this is a compact PSU.


Some more photos of the product.

While there are many cables, there is a problem with these EPS connectors as both are installed on the same cable, which can be dangerous if the motherboard pushes both hard. The good thing about there being no modular connections is that it would impact cable resistance, subsequently increasing operating temperatures. That said, the EPS cable should still at least be 16AWG for more headroom.


All cables are long enough, and the distance between peripheral connectors is adequate at 150 mm. Finally, there is no need for a berg adapter. XPG could install an additional 4-pin Molex connector in its place.
