Unboxing the power supply
The HCG-520M power supply comes supplied in a sturdy cardboard box, not unlike most Antec products. The design is colorful, mainly focused on promoting the primary features of the power supply.
Detailed feature descriptions and the number of the connectors that this power supply offers may be found at the rear side of the box.
There hardly is anything supplied with the HCG-520M, except from the basics. There is only an A/C power supply cable, mounting screws and a very basic product overview leaflet. As this unit is partially modular, there are also four cables supplied along with the unit.
While the cables of the HCG-520M look like any other ordinary sleeved cable, Antec improved their appearance by using half black-half colored cables for all of the voltage lines, an original and efficient modification. The HCG-520M offers two 8 pin PCI-E connectors, 5 SATA connectors, 4 Molex connectors and a single floppy connector.
