The packaging for the KCAS seems nothing out of the ordinary.

The black coated PSU is nothing out of the ordinary as well. Interestingly the KCAS 700 sticker is placed on the side of the PSU that’s facing the inside of the casing.

When mounted on casings, it ends up being the power delivery table facing outwards.

While the KCAS 700W is an 80Plus Bronze Certified PSU, AeroCool claims it does 85% efficiency.

Just as with the rest of my test, I’ve been running it on an R9 280X on load for weeks and all seems good. Until I get a proper load tester, we’ll just have to look at it from how the consumer uses it. In fact running a 250w graphic card 24/7 is more than what the average consumer does.

Another thing I like about it is the cable sleeve as it covers almost every area possible, no unsightly wires visible even between connectors.
