The supply of the Coolermaster 500 Watt PSU …

The 500 Watts Cooler Master 80PLUS bronze power supply and accessories is inside of this box. This time it’s not glossy cardboard box with much bling-bling, but a totally reasonable packaging for this price.

Here is a first look inside of the Cooler Master box.

That is contained in the box …

On the following picture one can see the relative small 150x140x86mm black power supply with its attached cables. The ATX cable is approx. 50cm long and may be too short for some fullsize tower systems. So one better should measure all lenghts inside of the case, before buying a PSU.

In the scope of delivery are the power cable, four screws, a folding sheet which contains a pictured building instruction, power supply pin allocations, warning references, warranty (3 years) and the disposal references. Unfortunately you do not get more accessories with this inexpensive power supply box, but basically that’s enough.

Here you can see a picture with all PSU cables:

1x 50cm attached ATX / ATX12V v2.2 cable with one 20+4-pin plug (50cm) 1x 60cm attached 12V CPU cables with 4+4-pin plug (60cm) 2x 50cm attached PCI-E cables with 6+2-pin plug (50 + 10cm) 2x 65cm attached cables with three SATA power connectors (45 + 10 + 10 cm) 1x 75cm attached cable with three molex plugs and one floppy connector (45 + 10 + 10 + 10 cm) 1x 0.75mm2 220V power cable

All connections can be connected well and offers a safe contact.
