The Super Flower Leadex III ARGB Gold 750 W performs well, is of high build quality, has an RGB fan, and RGB-lit, cube-shaped modular connectors. The good news is that you might even find it in the US soon since Super Flower products are now listed on Newegg and Amazon.

The ADATA XPG Core Reactor 850 W is a fine power supply, offering high efficiency, good overall performance, and excellent build quality. The warranty is also long enough, and pricing is reasonable, but could be a bit lower.

Seasonic's Connect power supply is the first of its kind, a PSU with a backplane containing all the modular sockets. The backplane also has the DC-DC converters that generate minor rails. Installation is easy, and airflow inside the case is improved notably.

The flagship in Antec's Signature line achieves very high performance while running very quietly at the same time. How does it compare to competing high-end offerings from Corsair and Seasonic of similar capacity? Is the Antec Signature Titanium 1000 W worth its $280 price tag?

The Super Flower Leadex III ARGB Gold 550 W offers high performance and is very efficient. The RGB lighting and crystal cube connectors of its fully modular cables look nice. However, is it worth paying an additional €24 to get it over the non-RGB Leadex III model of similar capacity?

The PassMark Inline PSU tester lets you perform in-depth testing of power supplies, beyond what a simple multimeter can do. It's also compact enough to carry with you in the field. We cross-verified its readings against our professional lab equipment with surprisingly good results.

The Fractal Design Ion+ 760P is a very quiet high-performance power supply of fine build quality. Its highly flexible cables, which lack in-line caps, make cable routing and management considerably easier. Costing about as much as PSUs with lower efficiency certifications, it also won't drain your wallet.

The new Leadex III unit with 850 W capacity has excellent performance and enough cables and connectors to power a potent gaming system. The cherry on top is the silent operation under even tough conditions. While Super Flower continues the good tradition of the Leadex name, it'll be hard to find their product in the US.

With 750 Watts, the Corsair SF750 is the strongest SFX power supply money can buy today. We saw great performance in almost all tests, and it operates quietly. Thanks to the included SFX-to-ATX adapter, you'll be able to pair it with a standard sized system, too.

At $240, the Corsair AX1000 is certainly not cheap, but it is the best PSU we ever tested. Being built on a Seasonic platform, only top-notch components are used, making this one of the most recommended 1000 W PSUs you can get today, if your system needs much power.

The Mistel MX650 comes from a fairly unknown brand in the PSU market, but packs lots of interesting features, including passive design, RGB lighting, and super compact dimensions. Is it worthy of its high price tag, though?

The BitFenix Formula Gold 750 W is one of the quietest PSUs in the sub-$100 category, and it performs very well in all other areas. Its fixed cables are the only compromise - you clearly cannot have it all at such an affordable price.
