Lepa G1000-MA 1000-Watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review - Inside the Box

Lepa proves they have what it takes to compete with the heavy hitters in the PSU market, this time with the G1000-MA 1000W power supply.

Inside the Box

Everything is sectioned off inside the box and is relatively well protected. The revised packaging over the Revolution87+ makes it much easier to get everything out.

The I/O specification label can be found on top as well as the serial number.

Both sides feature the same logo, just inverted on the opposite side. This side has a small rub mark on it from where it was against the cardboard with no foam, bubble wrap, or plastic between it. It is a minor cosmetic defect that could be avoided easily.

The back is standard with the honeycomb venting as well as the AC input and on/off rocker switch.

Here we find all of the modular connectors for the G1000 power supply. Unfortunately when Lepa changed the enclosure for the PSU, they didn't re-include the labels for rail distribution which was something that we really liked with the Enermax Revolution87+.

The bottom contains the 140mm fan for cooling the G1000. Both the fan and the grill are a bit different from the Enermax model.

All of the modular cables are fully to help with both cable management and airflow.

Also included with the power supply is the user manual, mounting screws, and AC input cord. This is the one area that Lepa power supplies tend to differ in that they don't include the extras such as the CableGuard clip, Velcro cables ties, and case badge that you typically find inside with an Enermax power supply.
