High Power isn't bashful in giving you a sneak peek at the Astro PT 700W powr supply packed neatly inside its box.  As we've come to expect from high-end power supplies, the box unpacks neatly with all of the flat, modular cables arranged in a vented, zippered nylon bag.  In addition to the 4+4-pin and 8-pin CPU and 24-pin motherboard power cables, the bag brings with it four 6+2-pin PCI-e, ten SATA, four 4-pin Molex, and one floppy power cable.
