Super Flower Leadex II Gold 1000w Power Supply
Super Flower is a bit of an unusual brand in terms of their consumer knowledge. While many will not be aware of them, to others it’s a name with a lot of good connotations. Like a brandy connoisseur giving an approving nod to a fine tipple, Super Flower falls into a similar bracket with anyone who owns or sees one. It’s a brand that speaks of something a little different, but with an impressive reputation.
We tend to not have too many romantic notions here at eTeknix, but we find ourselves in a similar position when asked to review the Super Flower Leadex II Gold 1000w power supply. Like the brandy, we expect this to be good before we even taste it.
With a hefty power output, this definitely falls into the category of those looking for a powerful base for a similarly powerful system. Let us, therefore, take a closer look and see just what the Super Flower Leadex II Gold power supply is capable of when placed under the scrutiny of our testing.
The Super Flower Leadex II has a single +12V rail which outputs 999.6w. Admittedly, not quite the 1000w, but we won’t quibble over less than half of a watt. With this level of power all put through a single rail, this makes it an excellent option in terms of overclocking of high-performance systems.
The gold certification and 100% Japanese capacitors definitely add a lot of substance to the product and so far, things are looking excellent for this power supply.

Inside the packaging, you will find the power supply itself within a canvas protective covering surrounded by impact insulation foam. In addition, you will also find another canvas bag containing all the cables, a product manual, and a smaller white canvas bag. What the latter is for, I must confess, I have no idea.
