The supply of the Coolermaster 700 Watt PSU …

As common in high-quality Cooler Master power supplies in the upperclass, the V700 is delivered in a nice glossy box. In this cardboard box comes the 700 Watt Cooler Master 80PLUS Gold power supply with its accessories.

That is contained in the box …

Here is a first look at the hinged cardboard box of the high-quality power supply, where we see the bag of the power supply, the bag of the cables and the power cord after removing the foam cover.

On the following picture one can see the small, black 170x150x85mm power supply with its accessories. In the scope of delivery are a lot of cables in one bag, four screws for the PSU, a folding sheet which contains a pictured building instruction, power supply pin allocations, warning references, warranty (5 years) and the disposal references. The bags are very useful, since one can store unnecessary cables very well:

The power supply is fully modular and has no attached cables, so one can attach each cable individual. Here you can see a picture of all included power supply cables:

1x 61cm ATX 2.31 cable with one 24-pin plug (61cm) 1x 68cm 12V CPU cables with 2x 4+4 plug (68cm) 2x 70cm PCI-E cables with 2x 6+2-Pin plug (60+10cm) 3x 65cm cables with 3x SATA plugs (45+10+10cm) 1x 55cm cable with 2x molex plugs (45+10cm) 1x 65cm cable with 2x molex plugs and one floppy connector (45+10+10cm) 1x 0.75mm2 220V power cable

The cables are very flat and thus can be installed properly in most chassis. All plugs can be inserted well and not too easily detach from the respective drive.
