The box for the GX-S 600W is black and gold-coloured, certainly a reference to the 80PLUS Gold certification. On the front is the name, the wattage, and a mention of the Vortex fan contained within.

The rear of the box contains a bit more detailed information, such as the features and specifications.

The accessories included are very minimal: user’s guide, mounting screws, and power cable. There is a small bonus here though, as a few Velcro cable ties are included in the package.
