External Design of the AX760i
As expected, the AX760i externally is exactly like a mini AX1200i. The length has been reduced to 160mm (6.3"), making the AX760i compatible with any ATX-compliant system. The power supply is black, with stickers attached to its sides and a decorative bottom part where the embossed ribs of the chassis are aligned with the fan's grill.
The side stickers of the AX760i are black but highly glossy as well. The company logo can be seen towards the left side of the sticker, although it is the model's logo which dominates.
The sticker with the detailed electrical specifications of the AX760i has been placed on the top side of the chassis, where it will be visible through a windowed side panel only if the case has the PSU mounting area towards its bottom and the unit's fan is still facing downwards.
Despite the fact that this power supply can output "only" 64% of the power the AX1200i was capable of delivering, the rear side of the unit remains littered with connectors for the numerous modular cables. There are six connectors for PCIe devices and CPU EPS cables, a paired set of connectors for the 24-pin ATX cable, six connectors for the SATA/Molex device cables and a small connector for the Corsair Link USB interface. Finally, there is also a small self-test button with a LED next to it, for basic diagnosing purposes. The self-test switch runs a diagnostic check on all voltage lines, as well as the fan, indicating whether the unit operates properly. If all cables are installed in the aforementioned connectors, the AX760i provides a total of two EPS 12V connectors, six 6+2 pin PCIe connectors, eight Molex connectors and twelve SATA connectors; a very healthy number of connectors considering the output of this power supply. There are also two floppy disk adapters but which negate one Molex connector each if used.
The front side of the AX760i is quite standard for a modern power supply, with most of it being perforated. The standard on/off switch and power plug receptacle are to be found, as well as a small sticker with the unit's logo.
