Super Flower launched its second high-performance 650W (continuous, peak output is 750W) modular PSU after the SF-650P14PE, the SF-650P14XE. The new model packs a ton of new features such as PFC + LLC, half-bridge resonant topology, DC-to-DC output, and synchronous rectification. Although it qualifies for 80 Plus Gold, its makers claim efficiency levels as high as 90%.

Yup, it's been tried many times before. I mentioned ABS-Tagan (BZ series). That one's been around since 2008 IIRC.

Yes, the "avionic grade" connectors has been done before, but that doesn't make the PSU crap. There's a HUGE difference between the internals of some old Andyson built Hiper or Topower built Tagan. SuperFlower makes good stuff (mostly). You can't judge the whole unit just because the connectors are the same as some mediocre PSU from 5 years ago.

Super Flower already used that types of connectors for their AMPTAC series (ofc, w/o "Avionics-Grade contacts") : http://www.super-flower.com.tw/products_list.php?class=2&sn=6&page=1&lang=

And based from my own experience, their AMPTAC series is a good and well priced PSU (I can find AMPTAC 650W here for +$85). Better than Coolermaster GX or Corsair GS at the same price range.

And TAGAN BZ were made by Topower :laugh: No wonder they were craps.

I believe we were commenting only on the connectors (exclusivity of).

Disagree about one part... on the Hiper, the connectors were great, and look to be the same at these. It was the PSU itself that was pure shit and fried two motherboards of mine.

I think he/she thought you agreed with theLostSwede. :)

But yeah I don't think there's anything wrong with the connectors at all.

I have these connectors with my XION Lan-Party AXP 800W and like them, they work great and seem much more secure. looks like a good PSU.

I like it. :)

But ... for me it's most important that the PSU is SECURE (with lots of safety mechanisms) and is having a very silent fan built in. Does anyone have experiences with that 140 mm Yate Loon-fan?

Currently I have a BeQuiet Dark Power Pro in use. Very silent, very stable ... no problems with BeQuiet-units for many years now. Hmmm ...

A lot of Corsair PSU, especially CWT built (TX750-950, VX550, HX750-850, HX1000-1050, all TX-M, the new CX and GS) or the newest Seasonic built TX V2, use Yate Loon fan.

Noise wise, not so silent, but does the job well.

Asians.

Back in the 90's when Super Flower started up, they didn't know any better. Heck.. I was in the bicycle business before computers back in the 80's and the names Asians would come up with for their companies and products were always hilarious.

Why? Because "QUALITY IS THEIR CHASING!"

I just love these connectors BFG/ AVON and others have done this but they were low rated PSUs I know Jonnyguru gave the connectors a low rating years ago .But how bad can they be if you have to screw then on.I think Super Flower translates to something cool in Asia but it doesn't work in the west.

That's why they sell it as KINGWIN in the west :laugh:
