Fatal1ty Series 1000W Overview
When you first pull the power supply out from the bag you can see it has the same color-scheme that are on many other Fatal1ty-branded products. These colors would be red, black and silver. The power supply is a bit longer than your normal ATX power supply, but not by much, the actual dimensions are 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 180mm(L).
On the bottom of the power supply you find a large 140mm cooling fan. This cooling fan will light up bright red when the power supply is in operation. At the center of the fan is a large Fatal1ty logo. Each side of the power supply has a cool Fatal1ty logo on it so no matter which way you have it installed in your case you will be able to see the logo.
The back of the power supply has a honeycomb design to allow for open airflow through the power supply. On the top of the power supply you have your basic input and output graphs.
At the front of the power supply is where you will find all of your modular connections. The connections are not labeled, but you should not have any trouble figuring what cable cables go where. Along the bottom is another large Fatal1ty logo. Of course this power supply is not fully modular and you do have cables coming out of it. These cables are sleeved all the way into the power supply, although there is not a plastic or rubber protector around the opening.
Attached to the power supply is your 20+4-pin ATX power cable, CPU 4+4-pin cable and two 6+2-pin PCI-Express connectors. You will find all of our other connectors in a nice carrying case. We have listed all of the included connectors on page 1 of this review. The big difference between this power supply and others is that all of the cables are individually sleeved! This is the first time we have seen anything like this come stock on a power supply! It looks awesome and is going to look even better when you have the power supply installed in your system!
