The Super Flower Leadex is the first fully modular platform we seen from Super Flower or at least that i know of?.
At the time of this writing (June 2014) the Leadex is a little bit over a year old and it and its EVGA rebrands are some of the very best units on the market, yet many have never heard of these or the rebrands before so this is a information thread for everyone that want to know more about the Leadex.
Note that many if not all versions come in both black and white which can get somewhat confusing at times
The fan is a 140 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan (RL4Z-S1402512HH). The fan is from Globe Fan, and its model number is RL4Z S1402512HH (12 V, 0.5 A, 1800 RPM, 135.74 CFM, 36.7 dBA). The same fan is used by the Rosewill Tachyon 1000 W unit, a re-badged SF PSU. The "S" nomenclature in the model number usually stands for a sleeve bearing, but the label on its centerpiece is indicative of a Fluid Dynamic bearing. Globe Fan probably used an upgraded sleeve bearing they call FDB. Finally, a small plastic baffle is attached to the fan. It funnels air toward the rear of the unit. Fan noise(Click to show)
The fan is a 140 mm Double Ball-Bearing Fan (HA1425M12B-Z). The cooling fan only carries SF's logo, but we are pretty sure that it is the same as in EVGA's unit, so its model number is HA1425M12B-Z, made by Hong Hua. It is equipped with double ball-bearings and is rated for 0.36A at 12 V. This fan can achieve 1600 RPM, but the fan-control circuit keeps it at much lower speeds most of the time. Also, it will rarely operate under normal conditions if you pick the semi-passive option. Next is voltage regulation(Click to show)
Last is ripple
Next is the Super Flower Leadex Platinum 1200 watts
Note that the Leadex Platinum comes in both white and black versions and this one happens to be the back version Pictures of the platform(Click to show)
The fan is a 140 mm Double Ball-Bearing Fan (RL4Z-B1402512EH).The cooling fan is by Globe Fan, and its model number is RL4Z-B1402512EH (140 mm, 12 V, 0.6 A, 2000 RPM, 153.47 CFM, 39.5 dBA, 70.000 MTBF). It is equipped with double ball-bearings and is rated for 0.6 A at 12 V, so it is quite strong and, hence, noisy at high speed, but the fan-control circuit keeps it at much lower speeds most of the time. It will also rarely operate under normal conditions if you pick the semi-passive option. Fan noise(Click to show)
The fan is a 140 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan (RL4Z-S1402512EH).And here is the last of the two major differences to the EVGA G2 1300 W unit (the first was the combined capacity of the hold-up caps). SF chose a higher quality FDB fan by Globe Fan (model number RL4Z S1402512EH, 12 V, 0.6 A) instead of the double ball-bearings fan we found in EVGA's offering, which translates into a longer life cycle and less output noise at similar RPMs. SF apparently kept the best parts for their units or EVGA simply sought to lower the production cost to increase profit, or the ability to offer their stunning ten year warranty.
