Inside the PSU:

As we open this unit, please keep in mind that opening a Power Supply will completely void the warranty.  Not only that, but because of the large capacitors, you can suffer a serious electrical shock if you touch the wrong thing.  Please do not open your PSU to compare what the insides look like.  I'm a "trained" professional, meaning that I've got shocked a time or two and know where not to touch, and with that in mind and the smell of burning flesh in the air, click on the images below for a closer look.

The PSU is a bit roomy inside and should allow the same case and internal PCB design to be used on larger-rated  PSUs from Sentey should they make a 1200W or larger unit in the future.  There is enough space to put in slightly larger components for the bigger models.  The cooling looks more than adequate for a 90+ rated PSU and we'll touch on running temperature when we jump into testing on the last page.  As you can see above, the main bulk of wires hits the rear modular backplane in a tidy bunch and the entire PSU is laid out very clean.
