The packaging seems like “slimmer” than the usual PSU packaging.

20+4pin ATX cable. Most of high end PSU don’t provide separate 20+4pin as not much 20pin ATX motherboard in the market now.

6+2pin PCI-e cables. Total 6 nos. of PCI-e connectors. FSP should provide a single 6+2pin instead of 1 to 2, new card consumed lesser wattage and single 6+2pin comes in handy during cable management.

4+4pin/8pin EPS cables. While they provide 4+4pin and 8pin at 700mm length for EPS cable which adequate for most of the mid tower chassis.

Molex for peripherals and SATA power cable. And guess what? Floppy power cable still exist!

Removed 1 pin from 24pin cable. Although it’s not gold plated pin, but the crimping work is good!
