Summary: I run a high end custom build PC and simply love this PSU - LEPA is one of the best PSU makers out there - very low ripple and works amazing for overclocking stability on my CPU for daily running.
Summary: First, this is a great power supply, I have bought many of them without issue. Here is probably why some people are having problems. Those red connectors on the power supply are not all for GPU, some are for CPU, but they look nearly identical except for small writing. You would assume you could use any of the 8 to place the wires, but you cannot. These are running stable for years, both the 1200 and 1600.
Summary: So i got this for a custom build i was working on and i actually love it. its quiet, isnt to bright at night, and comes with a plethera of cables for my equipment. only down side i have is that i cant find where to buy extra cables for it. other than that i approve of this PSU.
Summary: Purchased in March, installed into new rig build in April. Ran fine with one Nvidia Geforce GTX780ti, installed second GTX780ti in May and the PSU that is "advertised to run quad sli", cant even push two cards. Have requested return and refund from Platinum Micro, Inc on Amazon after multiple attempts to contact Lepatek (don't bother). Will purchase a Rosewill 1600w.
Summary: Got too hot and destroyed my motherboard, my new AMD 9590, two sticks of AMD 2400 Gamer Series RAM, my Swiftech water block, my DVD drives, my two Samsung SSDs, and my 2 ASUS 7970s. Only thing that didn't get destroyed was the radiator. I keep my machine in a separate room from the simulator it runs and have the cable for the screens extended to it. Didn't notice till the screens started turning blue, by then it was too late, and the case was hot as heck.
Summary: As you may have seen, this particular PSU has its ups and downs. I got 5 months of continuous usage before it crapped out. I'm not sure if it's Lepa's fault, or my own for running it 24/7 (only at 80-85% capacity, mind you). Platinum Micro, the vendor I bought from, had no problem RMAing the PSU with a full paid postage and refund. Great vendor, and would buy from them again, but Lepa has some work to do on their components.
Summary: This product can not boot my machine. The video cards and the mb do not light up. The corsair 800 watt power supply works fine. I have a diagnostic on the power line and the system is drawing 120 watts. There is no excuse. This is a shoddy product.
Summary: This power supply is a joke. If you're looking into mining or doing anything that would actually utilize close to this much wattage, do yourself a favor and get a Corsair Enthusiast or similarly reputable line of PSUs. Protip: Multiple rails is a SALES GIMMICK and is actually quite bad. Multiple rails means you have the total amperage output capacity of the power supply divided among multiple outputs.
Summary: I bought this hoping to run 4 7990 video cards on one machine. It couldn't really run one, and I'm not sure if that was a defect on the PSU side, or just too much power going down one cable. But in otherwords, I ended up burning out one of the sockets (as well as the cable) in the PSU. It runs everything else just fine. The packaging is nice.
