The power supply comes in a large box and is embedded in plastic foam that covers the whole power supply and secures it nicely against damage during transit. There is a big bag shown, lying in front of the power supply, which contains all of the cables that can be attached to the unit. The box itself has a lot of information for potential buyers in retail shops.
The power supply comes in black as is usual with Corsairs units. The surface has a rough texture, as if it was sandblasted before painting. The front has a perforated opening, two-thirds of the width of the unit, to exhaust the air and the last third contains the AC jack and a large power switch. On looking closer at the opening, it reveals black plastic foil covering half of the holes, mostly those in the bottom part, which is behind the fan. Corsair does this to direct the airflow through the coils and capacitors located directly in front of the holes. There is a little bit of the side blocked as well behind which the rectifier bridge is located. Not that it would really matter to have the lower parts blocked as the fan is located behind it and the air would not exhaust at this point anyway. Both sides are covered with a thin blue sticker that shows the name of the power supply.
