The box is small, and its yellow background draws attention. At the face is a photo of the PSU showing the semi-modular cable design. Corsair makes no effort to hide the fixed cables, which is good because it won't confuse potential buyers.


With nothing but bubble wrap instead of packing foam protecting the unit inside, protection inside the box is mediocre.


The bundle includes fixing bolts, zip ties, and the user's manual. For us reviewers, there is also a flash drive containing information on the product.


The fan grille is not restrictive, which is good for airflow. At the PSU's front is the exhaust grille with the triangular perforations, power switch, and AC C14 receptacle.


The power specifications label has been put on the bottom of the PSU. On the sides, a sticker describes the model number and capacity.


The modular panel only has three sockets.


The 24-pin ATX and EPS connectors are on fixed cables.


Measuring 140 mm deep, this PSU is compact.

The fixed cables are long enough and use 18AWG gauges, which is adequate for a 750 W PSU. The first EPS connector is permanently attached while the second one modular, so both won't have to be attached to the PSU if your mainboard doesn't require the additional CPU power. Finally, the four PCIe connectors are installed on two cables with thicker 16AWG wires up to the first connector.


There are enough peripheral connectors, and with 150 mm between these, they are far enough apart.
