I was lucky enough to get the Tagan ITZ series power supply (PSU) over to test out. This PSU is not one for your basic machine. This is an ITZ 1300 watt PSU made for high end equipment. There is enough power and rails to provide most game system builds with all it's needs and leave ample power to spare. When you first pick up the box be warned it is not light weight. A rough estimate would make it about two to three times the weight of a normal 600w PSU.
The front of the box has the ABS gaming lab certification, to prove they are serious about making sure they have a good PSU for your game system. It is also NVIDIA SLI an ATI Cross-Fire certified.

The side of the box can give you an idea of how many wires you will have to power your system and what extra ones you will have as well.
After removing the outer box, you have two smaller boxes inside along with a manual as well.
The PSU is protected very well. The finish is protected with bubble wrap to prevent denting or scratching during shipment. Opening the inner box with the PSU, you can see the tight packinging with all the cables.
Tagan wrapped all of the wires to help with the rats nest effect you can get when cabling your computer. You still have to be careful with this PSU since there are a lot of rails to manage.
Inside the other internal box you have the Molex to small floppy Molex a, Molex to SATA converters, badge with the PSU name and ABS information, and power cable in a bag with a few other things.
They also packed an anti-vibration kit and velcro straps.
The shell of the PSU is a nice shade of blue and has a mirrored finish. On the side of the PSU you have the name along with the amount of power it is able to deliver.
The finish is shown off with some mints that I had.
All of the cables are wrapped and can reach any place inside of a case. I will use the largest case I have with this PSU to put it work.
