    Default Super Flower LEADEX II Gold

    These have just become available in Australia. For quite a reasonable price.
    Any thoughts?

    You know it's the same as the EVGA G3 (with different input filter), right?

    After EVGA burned the bridge with Super Flower, Super Flower has been selling direct a lot more.

    What's your definition of a reasonable price?

    the 550W from superflower is 120 aud here. (0.69USD per aussie dollar right now)
    and small price increments upwards for 650/750 etc.

    compared to 139aud for a 550rmx for example.

    ...so its the same innards as a G3?

    we dont have bitfenix as an option from aussie retailers that i can see. bequiets are available though.

    pure power 11 600W is same price as the superflower leadex gold II 550W 120 aud

    here ill post the website if you want to have a qwik browse....this online store is a little bit more expensive than some others in aus. but has a bit wider range of products:

    Well, I'm not sure about that...

    My Leadex 2 still looks like this:


    EVGA G2 is this:

    Leadex 3 much different to leadex 2? my mistake in the thread title.
    so there are maybe a few/any? little design/internal component differences that EVGA makes to the super flower branded psu?
    just curious.

    ive decided on Corsair rmx for a replacement anywho. but i heard good things about the Leadex design is all...and its priced just a tad lower (about 20-30 aud) which is peanuts to me.

    ...and leadex 3 looks like this:
    https://www.kitguru.net/components/p...2019-review/4/
    AE9I1210.jpg
    750W version 2019

    Also; is there rail separation on these units, and or the corsair rmx line?


    https://www.corsair.com/us/en/blog/s...rious-business
    "Amperage: Is there such a thing as too much?
    Letís use an example. The Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 provides a single +12V rail, delivering a maximum current of 62 Amps and a maximum combined wattage of 720 Watts. A PSU from another vendor might have four +12V rails, each with a total amperage of 25 Amps (the higher total amperage on the +12V line in this example is made up for by providing less power on the other lines than the Corsair PSU ó 25 Amps each to the +3.3V and +5V lines, vs. 30 Amps on the TX750 V2).

    Is 62 Amps any less safe than 25 Amps?

    The answer is: of course not. Single-rail PSUs have the very same protective circuitry described above as do multi-rail CPUs.

    When looking at total amperage, Itís also important to remember that when a PSU is installed into a PC, the current is spread among multiple power cables ó to your motherboard, to your peripherals, to your GPU, and so on. Youíll never have a situation where 62 Amps are being drawn across a single power cable. Additionally, any well-designed PSU power cable (that is, the cables provided by any reputable PSU manufacturer) just canít supply the impedance that would be necessary to overload the cable.

    When choosing a power supply, there are a few things to consider: whether you want modular cables, how much power you need today, and how much power you think youíll need for your next several upgrades. But when choosing between a single-rail or a multi-rail PSU, safety simply isnít a differentiator."

    being an ignoramous on these matters...no choice but to take their word for it.

    I was just wondering if any of the circuit protection components fail in the psu whether a cable can be overloaded with amps and overheat.

    AbsolutelyÖ if a short pulls 62 amps and so does not trigger shutdown, that is a LOT of heat.
