Unboxing the power supply
Gamer series, Champ1on series…we are getting confused here. Anyway, the Fatal1ty 1000W unit is supplied inside a large dark cardboard box. The front of the box is covered with reddish artwork, featuring a sketch of Johnathan Wendel’s portrait and a partial 3/4 picture of the unit itself.
The box (rear)
At the back of the box OCZ printed the features and specifications we listed in the previous page, including a small table with the electrical specifications of the power supply.
Inside the box we found a purse with the modular cables stored inside of it, an instructions manual, the standard A/C power cable, some black mounting screws and a few basic cable ties. Call us greedy if you may but we did expect more of a bundle from such a high-class product, or at least a few quality cable straps.
The individually sleeved cables are perhaps the strongest selling feature of the Fatal1ty 1000W unit. OCZ definitely did a marvelous job here, as we could not find a single imperfection no matter how hard we struggled. Whether individually sleeved cables look better or not, that’s a subjective matter; however do note that they significantly increase the width of each cable and might make cable management more difficult.
