LEPA introduces the new MX-F1 power supplies that covers the entry-level segment of the manufacturer. Apart from that, LEPA extends the premium-class MaxGold series with the G1000-MB.
The N series represents the LEPA entry-level class. With good quality components, a stable operation and an excellent price-performance ratio, the N series is a good choice for professional system building. With the new MX-F1 series, LEPA upgrades the entry-level class – optically as well as technically. With the racing-style appearance of the MX-F1, the new power supplies contrast strongly with the ordinary grey housing of the previous N models. The white coating with the chequered flag pattern expresses LEPA's aspiration to establish the entry-level power supplies in retail market and to gain the acceptance of gaming system integrators.
The MX-F1 power supplies reach a peak efficiency of 87% at 230VAC. They therefore fulfill the requirements of the EU regulation 617/2013 for PC systems which will become effective from the 1st of July 2014. According to the tighten rules, computers need to achieve minimum 82% efficiency at 20% and 100% load, and 85% at 50% load to comply with the European CE certificate.
LEPA applies a proven PSU circuitry and quality components, so that the MX-F1 provides a good voltage regulation and a stable operation of performance-capable PC systems. A 12cm fan with low-noise hydraulic bearing keeps the temperatures low inside the power supply. With just 140mm depth, the MX-F1 also fits into compact multimedia PCs, mini-ITX or micro-ATX chassis.
The MX-F1 series from LEPA includes three models with 400, 500 and 600 watts. The 400W version (N400-SB-EU) costs 34.90 Euro (MSRP incl. VAT), the MX-F1 500W (N500-SB-EU) can be obtained for 39.90 Euro (MSRP incl. VAT), and the MX-F1 600W (N600-SB-EU) comes at a price of 44.90 Euro (MSRP incl. VAT).
Already since the beginning of 2014, LEPA sells the premium-class power supply series MaxGold. Currently, it consists from four models with 500, 600, 700 and 800 watts. Now, the manufacturer extends the product line with a PSU for high-end PC systems. Like the remaining wattage versions, the new MaxGold 1000W fulfills the requirements of the international energy-saving standard 80 PLUS Gold and achieves a peak efficiency of 92%. The DC-to-DC circuitry offers an optimal voltage regulation and guarantees a stable system operation.
The solid 12V rail delivers up to 996 watts, which are more than 99% of the total power output capability. That way, the G1000-MB is a choice for overclocked PCs and multi-GPU systems. The new MaxGold model comes with numerous connectors for all possible configurations: 6x 8-pin PCI-E, 12x SATA and 8x 4P molex.
LEPA delivers the G1000-MB with the Q-Brick rubber frame. It reduces vibrations and ensures best possible decoupling of the power supply. Depending on the individual taste, users can choose between a red and a decent black Q-Brick frame.
The MaxGold 1000W (G-1000-MB) is now available on sale and costs 159.90 Euro (MSRP incl. VAT).
