    XG Magnum External 600w PSU - Opening the box


    (Page 2 of 5 )

    For starters, the box this PSU came in was covered with the specs and features of this PSU. If an educated consumer were to find this in a store, there would be no confusion as to the features and functionality that this PSU has to offer.

    Opening the box, I found that the PSU itself was quite adequately protected, with a generous foam layer surrounding the PSU itself.  The other items were packed into the box around the foam-enclosed PSU.

    When I removed the contents of the box, I was immediately impressed by the PSU itself.  This is not one of those hidden components to be tucked away inside your machine; this PSU was built to be an attractive addition to your system.  Here's a few pics so you can see what I mean.

      

    As you can see from the above pictures, the PSU itself has the power switch and LCD readout on the front of the unit. On the back is the power socket, as well as the connectors that go to the internal piece of the PSU.  That's right, there is a secondary plate which sits inside the case, which has all the leads to connect to the internal components.

    Speaking of which, here it is:

    The harness on top is the connector plate and internal cables. The internal plate screws into your PC where the PSU would connect.  The holes in the plate are in the same position as a normal PSU, so there shouldn't be an issue fitting any case that accepts a standard PSU.

    The harness on the bottom is the connector that plugs into the back of the PSU itself at one end, and the connector plate at the other end. As you can see from this picture, this cable is pretty short (about a foot and a half long), so if you have anything taller than a mid-tower, you need to put the PSU on top of the case in order for the cables to reach.  I think it would be wise of MGE to offer a longer version of this cable, maybe even include it, at the price this PSU demands.
