This power supply features a modular cabling system with rounded sockets that glow blue when cables are connected and can be found being sold under several other brands such as AXP, eXtream, Hiper, Super Flower and XION and is available with several different power configurations. Featuring a 140 mm fan and with Kingwin saying that it can deliver 700 W at 50° C will this popular unit without active PFC survive our tests? Check it out.
By the way, as far as we can tell from the markings available inside the power supply (“SF” on the transformers and printed circuit board) this power supply is manufactured by Super Flower.
As we briefly mentioned, the modular cabling system uses rounded sockets instead of squared connectors. These sockets come covered with light blue plastic protections. In Figure 3, you can see these sockets without these covers. Each socket is threaded, so you need to screw the connector from each peripheral cable you want to use to its socket. We think this mechanism is quite interesting, as each cable will be very well attached to its socket.
Each socket has a blue LED around it that glows when a peripheral cable is installed. You can see this in Figure 4. Pay attention on how LEDs from unused sockets stay turned off.
