Before we look at the guts of the unit, a fan shot.
Yup, a Leadex build. I forgot to take the camera out of vivid mode after shooting severe weather the other day, so this shot is extra colorful.
Only one X capacitor can be found at the AC input.
Super Flower's soldering isn't the best in the world, but it's good enough that I don't think I'll pull points at all.
Four Y capacitors, two more X caps, two more coils, and an MOV are found on the mainboard for line filtering.
Four 5R140Ps make up the main switchers.
Both bridge rectifiers use the same part number.
Four 5R140Ps and two diodes handle PFC. I cannot identify the controller - they have it all sealed up in a special shielded envelope, and getting to it would destroy the unit. I tried that once - never again.
Beyond the VRMs for the minor rails, we find the AA9013 PWM controller.
A shot of the fan controller board for you, as well as the Schottky for the standby output.
Love the looks of the modular board. That center standoff was a mite loose, making it hard to remove the screw, so I tightened it up. Not a big enough deal to score on.
Eight 023N04Ns provide the 12V output on this beast.
Every last electrolytic and polymer capacitor is from Nippon Chemi-Con. Certainly, I have no complaints there.
