Super Flower Leadex VII Gold 1300W (SF-1300F14XG) PSU Review

Box & Bundle

I got an evaluation sample in a plain box, not the final one. The bundle includes a pouch for the modular cables, which is always welcome.

The exterior design is appealing, to my eyes at least, and thanks to the number of large perforations, airflow is increased. The modular panel has the same number of sockets as the 1000W model since both models share the same cable configuration.

Cables

Modular Cables
Description Cable Count Connector Count (Total) Gauge In Cable Capacitors
ATX connector 20+4 pin (600mm) 1 1 16-20AWG No
4+4 pin EPS12V (700mm) 2 2 18AWG No
6+2 pin PCIe (700mm) 4 4 16AWG No
12+2 pin PCIe (700mm) (600W) 1 1 16-24AWG No
SATA (600mm+150mm+150mm+150mm) 3 12 18AWG No
4-pin Molex (600mm+150mm+150mm+150mm) 1 4 18AWG No
AC Power Cord (1410mm) – C13 coupler 1 1 16AWG

The cable configuration is the same as the 1000W Leadex VII model. There are enough cables, including four 6+2 pin PCIe, all on dedicated cables, and a single 12+2 pin PCIe set at 600W. The fact that it is 12+2 and not 12+4 should not trouble you because even in PSUs with 12+4 pins, the CARD_PWR_STABLE and the CARD_CBL_PRES# sense pins do not lead to corresponding circuits inside the PSU, so basically, are on air. Finally, the number of peripheral connectors is adequate, and the same applies to the distance between them.

  1. Hi Crmaris,

    When will this psu be released in eu?

    I cant find a good 1200 watt ATX 3.0 psu in europe.

    Nothing comes close to this cpu as far as i know. What should i do or buy tom come close to this psu? Im lost. Biggest factor for me is noise and coilwhine.

    Kind regards,
    Sam

  2. I needed a high wattage PSU and decided to buy this on Newegg for 185 USD largely based on this review. Many of the 1000W PSU featured on this site was priced 140 USD and often more according to PCpartpickers, so it wasn’t that hard of decision to pay a little extra for this instead.

  3. no case is included on the current release of this PSU. I think all PSU’s should come with a case/bag. Feels very cheap to see it in this review but not in the retail release.

    Not a reason to avoid but something to note. The cables felt a lot less substantial than a msi 1000w unit I was pulling out (DOA unit being returned). The MSI MPG also had nice sleeved cables while this one had more standard ones with very poor QC on the rubber tape/band wrapped around the 12VHPWR. Glue was allowed to seep and dry from the tape and just made everything look sloppy. Not what someone wants to put in their 3-4k PC.
