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.
|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|
|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.

Why does it say 12VHPWR connector support but i cant see anyone on the pictures?
It uses 2x 8 pin on the modular panel for the 12VHPWR, which is safer.
