    Default Lepa G-1000 @[H]

    http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/...supply_review/

    For everyone to enjoy.

    It seems the only downgrade Enermax gives these units is an ADDA 2BB fan. Not really an awful choice, but it definitely looses them the edge in terms of noise.
    EDIT: The LB model only goes up to 33dB so that's not awful for a 1000w unit.

    Stefan is going to call it a failure though.

    I think google translate ripped you off, you should ask for a refund.

    in all seriousness, i was just kidding about a 1kw unit being a failure for spitting out 33db. i just like that stefan cares about fan noise

    i dont really care for that cougar stuff tho :X

    The above exchange... LOL... welcome to the forums Michita!

    Interesting review Paul, despite the inferior fan, I find the G 1000 more appealing than the Revo87+, certainly far less cheesy looking (quite good actually).

    Me neither, after I saw the results of my 700W Cougar CM from a chroma, I never used again. Actually I put an Antec Truepower Trio PCB in the Cougar unit. But somehow I couldn't find the third rail of the TPT...

    Anyway: A 135mm fan with just 0.22A (about 1800rpm) in a 1000W unit? I'm quite shocked...
    But sadly it's a 2BB fan and not an FDB fan.

    Besides that the soldering seems a little sloppy on some parts. Besides that the unit doesn't look that bad, does it?

    OK, a 1000W quad rail isn't something I really want. I'd go for a six rail unit, if I've got the choice...

    2BB Sanyo Denkis can't be too bad though, amirite? Never heard those @low rpm, so I don't know if bearing is plainly audible or not. Dunno about Adda, anyone knows if their 2BB fare a lot better than their lower end BB?
