Cabling Arrangement

The cable selection for the Lepa G1000 power supply is very well rounded and should take care of just about anyone. The obligatory 20+4 pin Main connector is present along with a cable that provides an EPS12V connector and an ATX 4+4. The six PCI-E connectors will power a trio of video cards. Peripheral connectors come in the form of 12 SATA, eight Molex and one FDD spread over five cables.

Rail distribution is spread out about as perfectly as it could be. 12V1 provides power for the Main connector and both AUX power connectors. 12V2 handles one of the PCI-E connectors and three of the peripheral connectors while 12V3 does the other two peripheral connectors and another PCI-E connector. 12V4 finishes things off with another PCI-E connector and the natively wired PCI-E cable. The rails are distributed so well by design that you don't have to worry about load balancing the power supply as it happens automatically.

A Look Inside

Taking a look inside, we find three rows of heatsinks that provide passible cooling.

While the Enermax unit we looked at featured Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors on the primary side, our Lepa G1000 has a pair of Panasonic caps.

We found many of Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors over on the secondary side.

The Lepa G1000 receives active cooling in the form of the 140mm ADDA ADN512LB-A90 fan.
