The Cooler Master V Series 1000W power supply ships in a very attractive box featuring a moody, softly lit image of the power supply itself alongside the 80 Plus Gold Certification logo and some specifications.
Inside, the power supply is protected between two soft foam pads and a soft felt bag.
The modular cabling is supplied in a nylon bag, alongside a regional specific power plug and some mounting screws. There is also a little sheet of paper which gives an overview of the power supply.
The quality of the 18AWG cables is excellent, apart from the main ATX cable they are all the flat ribbon style which has proven popular in the last year. They are easier to route and can help improve airflow.
|MB 20+4 pin||x1 (610mm)|

|4+4 pin EPS12V/ATX12V||x2 (690mm)|
The V1000 has 8x PCIe cables which will cover a Quad SLI, or Crossfire system build. I would have expected a couple more SATA and Molex connectors however for such a high end unit. The V1000 has a single +12V rail.
