Super Flower Leadex VII PRO 1000W ATX v3.1 PSU Review

The Super Flower Leadex VII PRO 1000W is a high performance power supply, Platinum certified in the Cybenetics scheme. If you are wondering about its performance, read the review to learn more. 

The Super Flower Leadex VII PRO 1000W will be included in my best ATX v3.x & PCIe 5.x PSU picks article.

Super Flower is trying hard to enter the retail market business, dropping to a huge degree the OEM market. It is not easy to succeed in the retail business since you have to provide the best possible support, among others. The great asset when you manufacture the products that you sell in retail is that you have the margin to offer better prices while keeping profits at reasonable levels. That said, I remember back when Enermax did quite the opposite: it built its own products but offered them at sky-high prices, which forced its management to eventually shut down its manufacturing line. If you have a small production line is tough to buy parts at good prices, affecting the final prices of the products and making them less appealing, even if they offer good performance.

The Leadex VII Pro line has three members, with 1200W, 1000W, and 850W max power. In this review, I will evaluate the middle member of the line, and I will ask for the strongest one to review as well. The Leadex VII PRO 1000W is Platinum certified in the Cybenetics scheme and has a Cybenetics Standard++ noise rating, meaning that its average noise output is between 30 and 35 dBA. All cables are modular, and probably the most important feature, besides capacity, efficiency, and noise ratings, is the ATX v3.1 compatibility. From the moment the PSU doesn’t use the native 12V-2×6 connector but propriety ones, it automatically gets an upgrade to the ATX v3.1 spec.
