Lepa G1600-MA 1600-watt Power Supply Review

Cabling Arrangement




Lepa provides an excellent selection of connectors, but their cable choice lacks a little bit. All of the cables are a bit short, especially the PCI-E cables. They will be hard to hide and route on the back side of the case and still reach where you want them to. The FDD connectors are also forced upon as and not offered as adapters as they should be.


You most certainly are reading that chart correctly and it is not an error. There are in fact ten PCI-E connectors, giving you the ability to power five GPU's. There are also three CPU connectors and you can utilize all three of them at the same time. Rounding out the list are fourteen SATA connectors, eight Molex and two FDD connectors.




Rail distribution is well thought out and prevents you from creating an imbalance on the rails of the power supply. 12V1 takes care of your main connector and 12V2 feeds the first EPS12V connector. 12V3 and 12V5 each handle two of the GPU/CPU/RAM connectors. 12V4 and 12V6 each handle one of the GPU/CPU/RAM connectors as well as three of the peripheral connectors.



A Look Inside




Lepa isn't messing around on the inside and makes sure that there is plenty of passive cooling on the unit to aid in removing heat from critical areas.




A trio of Japanese made Panasonic capacitors adorns the primary side of the power supply.




Rubycon capacitors can be found on the secondary side of the PSU.




Active cooling for the Lepa G1600-MA is provided by the ADDA AD512UB-A90 135mm fan.
