Unboxing the power supply
Seasonicsupplies their premium power supply inside a large box with a very serious artistic theme. The effects have the box looking as if it is made of brushed metal, with the rest of the artwork focused on a picture of the power supply itself.
At the rear of the box, the potential customer can find thorough information on the unit's most important features.
Even though there are many parts supplied, the bundle is not grander than what we would expect from a power supply of this level. Seasonic supplies the power supply inside a reusable black pouch and the cables inside an interesting dual fold nylon bag. Additionally, there is your basic manual, a case sticker and mounting screws, a few normal cable ties and six high quality unique cable straps.
Despite the grandeur appearance of the Platinum 1000W and its entirely modular design, the cables are in no way special, which might be a little bit disappointing for some users. Seasonic supplies this unit with typical cables enveloped in black sleeving, nothing more or less.
Here is a chart that shows what cables are included. As you can see you get six 8-pin PCI Express video card connectors along with 11 SATA and 8 4-pin Molex connectors.
