First Look

As you can see, everything is neatly packed inside the retail box. The complete list of included contents is as follows: the power supply itself, six Velcro cable straps, user's manual, four zip ties, five screws, power cable and a bundle of modular cables.

The body of the MX 680 is kind of a mix of flat and glossy black and looks really nice. The BFG logo is stamped into both sides of the unit, with a thermal-controlled 120mm cooling fan on top and an additional 80mm "helper fan" positioned beside the modular connections. According to BFG, this fan only kicks on when internal temperatures go over 50 C.

The back of the power supply features a honeycomb grill design to maximize airflow. An A/C power connector and on / off breaker switch are the only items that populate this area.

On the other side are eight modular connectors - the top two colored green plugs are reserved for PCI-E video cards. We also find the fixed 20+4-pin ATX power cable and 4+4-pin CPU cable and the aforementioned 80mm helper fan.

BFG Tech thoughtfully placed the specs and other various stickers on the bottom of the unit, as to not mar its appearance when installed in a case.

Continue ahead as we take a look at the included cables and connectors of the MX 680.
