The manufacturer has its own power supply factories and an efficient development department. Super Flower can deliver particularly high quality with a stylish look at attractive prices. As a result, it is hardly surprising that Super Flower power supplies are frequently recommended by both well-known specialist media and satisfied users.
With the Leadex series, Super Flower has established itself in the high-end segment. The manufacturer is equipping the illuminated Leadex III Gold ARGB Pro series with a new internal connection: The patented Super Connector in a square 9-pin design is suitable for PCI Express and ATX / EPS connection cables and therefore offers greater flexibility when wiring the system.
The features of the Super Flower Leadex III Gold ARGB Pro power supply with 850 watts:
- Fully modular power supply with 80 PLUS Gold certification
- ECO mode for quiet and efficient cooling
- Quiet 130 mm fan with fluid dynamic bearings
- Digitally addressable RGB LED lighting
- Fully modular cable management
- 2x 4 + 4-pin EPS12V / ATX12V, 6x 6 + 2-pin PCIe, 9x SATA, 4x 4-pin Molex
- Seven years manufacturer warranty
- Low noise emissions thanks to semi-passive mode
The Leadex III platform developed by Super Flower works under the hood of all models with a nominal output of 650 to 850 watts. The fan uses a fluid dynamic bearing that is characterized by its smoothness and durability. A switch on the back can be used to choose between two different cooling modes.
Due to the low fan speed and the fluid dynamic bearing, the power supply remains extremely quiet even in active operation. Compared to classic ball bearings, fluid dynamic bearings work much quieter and they clearly outperform simple plain bearings in terms of service life.
High efficiency and independent voltage regulation
All Leadex III Gold power supplies are 80 PLUS Gold certified and are guaranteed to achieve over 92 percent efficiency with medium load. At a low load of 20 percent, at least 90 percent efficiency is achieved, at full load it is 89 percent. This means that third-generation Leadex power supplies will clearly be among the most economical voltage converters in the future.
In order to achieve the high level of efficiency, Super Flower relies on the latest, high-quality technology: The Leadex III platform relies on LLC resonance conversion in the primary range and DC-DC down conversion for the + 3.3 and + 5 volt rails. Thanks to this form of independent voltage regulation, the output voltages always remain close to the target value even in demanding test scenarios (e.g. asymmetrical loading). If necessary, the entire nominal output can be called up as a +12 volt voltage. In combination with the low residual ripple, Leadex III is particularly suitable for demanding configurations and overclocking projects.
Modern technology and high quality components
When it comes to equipping with semiconductors and capacitors, Super Flower relies on top quality: Only 105-degree electrolytic capacitors from Japanese brands and solid polymer capacitors are installed on the motherboard. On the connection board for the modular cable management, 105-degree electrolytic capacitors of Taiwanese A brands are also used. In combination with the sophisticated fan control and the long-life FDB fan, the average life expectancy exceeds 100,000 hours.
The Leadex III switches with fuses against over and under voltage (OVP, UVP), short circuit (SCP), overload (OPP), overheating (OTP) and overcurrent (OCP on the + 3.3 and + 5 volt rail) in an emergency to protect valuable hardware (and yourself) from damage. This makes it easy for Super Flower to give a full seven-year manufacturer's guarantee on all models in the Leadex III series.
As with all other Leadex power supplies, Super Flower relies on fully modular cable management and completely black cables. In this way, only the cable strands that are actually required are connected to the power supply unit. The 850-watt model offered here already has extensive cable equipment: In addition to the 20 + 4-pin connector for the mainboard, there are two 4 + 4-pin connections for the processor and three cables with a total of six 6 + 2-pins -PCIe plugs ready for the graphics cards. The other components are supplied with nine SATA and four Molex connectors if necessary.
Stylish RGB-LED lighting
The Super Flower Leadex III Gold ARGB Pro power supplies offer extensive RGB lighting that shines through the fan openings and the transparent connections of the white power supply. It offers a total of 16 lighting modes that can be selected using a button on the power supply unit. Synchronization with compatible motherboards from ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock and MSI is also possible. To do this, the power supply unit is connected to the motherboard via a digital 3-pin RGB header (5V).
