LEPA is ready to release a new series of entry-level power supply units entitled MX-F1. The series counts three models of 400 W, 500 W and 600 W capacity: N400-SA-EU, N500-SA-EU and N600-SA. In addition, the company has expanded its MaxGold line with a flagship 1000-watt model. It corresponds to Intel ATX12V 2.4 standard and employs an optimized hardware design.
To begin with, MX-F1 PSUs offer 87% of ultimate efficiency. Operating at 20%/50%/100% loading, they are able to achieve 82%/85%/82% efficiency correspondingly. Nonetheless, the models cannot receive 80Plus Bronze certificate, since they feature limited voltage input range. All the models within the series employ a single +12V rail and boast a non-modular design.
This promotes for the connection of middle-efficiency components. They support Active PFC and a wide spectrum of protective functions (over-voltage, over-current, over-power, short-circuit). Cooling of internal components is ensured by a single 120 mm fan. The recommended by the manufacturer price for the products makes up 34.90 EUR for the junior model, 39.90 EUR for the middle model, and 44.90 EUR for the senior model.
To continue, LEPA MaxGold 1000 offers 92% efficiency and a powerful +12V rails with 83A loading. As a result, it owns 80Plus Gold certificate. This PSU might be easily integrated within hi-end PC systems with premium CPUs and three top-tier graphics adapters. The layout embraces high-quality components, including DC-DC converter, double-forward circuit, etc.
The implementation of Anti3s Q-Brick technology is supposed to be one of the major product’s privileges. It offers an additional protection against vibrations, electrostatic current and strokes due to the availability of a special external rubber frame. The recommended price tag makes up 159.90 EUR.
