    Out of the Box

    The first thing we notice when taking the power supply out of the box, is the removable "X" or "butterfly" plate.  Beneath the plate is a window.  I guess not everyone appreciates a window, but if you're buying a power supply with LED's in it that change seven different colors... Come on!

    The side panel can be taken off to expose a window.

    This allows the multi-colored lights to be seen from the side of a window case.

    The finish is a nice, conservative flat black.  When fired up, the power supply illuminates and erie glow that fades out of one color and into another.  (Apology Edit:  I don't have any shots of this glow for reasons that will be disclosed later on in the review.)

    The Thermaltake with the lid off.

    Inside, we see a power supply that is very much Sirtech.  Components that are not too small, not too large.  You can see in one of the photos how LED's mounted inside the PSU housing are used in favor of LED fans.

    Here's a side shot of the Thermaltake with the lid off.
