Have you ever opened up a product and just felt like you were getting quality hardware?  This is one of those times.  The PSU comes double boxed, and wrapped in a cloth bag to protect the PSU.  The box is substantial, and you know this is a flagship product by the care in packaging.  Inside you will find the PSU, a nice glossy instruction manual, and a black Thermaltake bag with a monstrous selection of accessory and power cables.  There are some anti-vibration strips as well as mounting screws that are a tad longer than normal for drilling through the anti-vibration strips.  There is also a heavy duty power cable to connect the PSU to your wall outlet or power strip, with noise isolators.  It’s little nuances like this that let you know they thought of everything.  The PSU itself is matt black, with an anodized look.  There is a red stripe around the PSU, and a RED LED indicator just below the power connection.  The whole thing just looks good.
