Packaging

The box for the Cooler Master V SFX Platinum 1100W is smaller than the standard ATX power supply box which is a big giveaway that it is an SFX power supply but having SFX in the name also helps and for that Cooler Master has the V SFX Platinum 1100W model name in the largest font right in the middle of the box in white and grey. That sits next to a large picture of the V SFX Platinum 1100W itself which is always great to have on the packaging. Sticking with the normal Cooler Master theme the box has a purple background that fades to black and they have the Cooler Master logo and name in the blue to purple fade stripes at the top and bottom as well as in the bottom right corner as well. Other than that the front of the box does have a black box that highlights that this is an ATX 3.0 power supply and is PCIe 5.0 ready with a 12VHPWR connection. The bottom edge has the specifications along with graphs for the fan curve and the efficiency curve which is always nice. Then on the back, they have six different pictures, each highlighting a specific feature on the Cooler Master V SFX Platinum 1100W along with a description below the picture.

Once you open the box right up on top you have the documentation. You get two things. One is a user guide which also has a full pinout on the cables which is an understated addition, especially for any modders who want to make their own cables or want to resleeve these. The second paper has diagrams showing the recommended installation of the 12VHPR cable, these have been known to have issues when installed in tight situations where the plug doesn’t get the best contact but none of these have diagrams showing the unique right-angled 12VHPWR cable included with the V SFX Platinum 1100W so it isn’t as much help as it could be.

Along with the V SFX Platinum 1100W power supply you also get a small bag that has a black textured powder-coated SFX to ATX adapter. I have used these a lot in the past, they are great for compact cases with ATX PSU support as a way to save space and have more/better airflow or bigger cooling options. There are two sets of black mounting screws. Then you have zip ties for wire management, 7 in total, and three Velcro straps as well which are nice for bigger bundles and are reusable. The V SFX Platinum 1100W also comes with all of its cables packed in a nylon bag with a velcroed top to keep everything inside. Then next to that the power supply comes in a microfiber bag with pull strings and is sitting in a thick foam tray with a foam panel that sits on top as well.
