LEPA G850-MA 850-Watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review

Cabling Arrangement




LEPA doesn't do anything special with the cables and connectors. Things are quite standard with four PCI-E connectors over two cables, 12 SATA connectors over three cables, and four Molex connectors plus an FDD connector on one more cable. Also present are two 8-pin motherboard connectors and the 20+4 pin connector natively wired to the power supply.




Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.



A Look Inside




The LEPA G850-MAS is made by CWT and you can tell that it is nearly identical to the recently reviewed Thermaltake SMART 750W. Just as was with it, the reduction of components and increased efficiency of these units reduce the requirements for passive cooling, so there isn't much going on here in that manner.




A single Panasonic bulk capacitor sits on the primary side of the power supply.




The secondary side is littered with a bunch of Nippon Chemi-Con caps.




LEPA uses the Yate Loon D14BH-12 fan to provide the active cooling for the G850-MAS.
