A Closer Look – Exterior


A simple design on offer from this unit, with a large fan grille on the top, behind which you’ll find a good quality 140mm fan.

Down the sides, you have a Chieftec sticker and on the other side, just a blank panel, again, nothing fancy, but on the plus side the build quality feels pretty robust.

On the base of the unit, a run down of the main specifications, showing us the power rating for the various rails.

Lots of ventilation around the back, always a good thing to have as it’ll help shift more heat out of the unit. The unit will accept 115-230v power input and another welcome feature, a master power switch.

The cables are hard-wired and they’re certainly nothing fancy to look at, but they will get the job done. I do like that they’ve put a plastic grommet on the passthrough though, as this will help prevent the PSU housing from damaging any cables.

Cabling

The cables are pretty basic, with just some simple braiding on the 24-pin cable, but otherwise, they’re nothing special. There are enough connectors for a good range of peripherals and a graphics card.
