LEPA GM and BM Series Power Supplies Launch in Europe

After the market launch in 2011, the LEPA brand has successfully established itself in Europe. With proven technologies, durable components and an outstanding price-performance ratio, LEPA products have become increasingly popular in the past years. Now the company presents its third power supply generation: The new GM and BM series provide an advanced cooling system and a high-performance technological design for strong gaming rigs. Special bonus: LEPA delivers the PSUs with the brand-new "Q-Brick" rubber frame.

Both series, GM and BM, comply with the latest standard for desktop power supplies, ATX12V v2.4, and therefore also support the C6/C7 energy-saving modes of the most current Intel Haswell processors.
Maximum Gaming Performance with Minimum Energy Losses
The new power supplies from LEPA are specially designed for performance-capable graphics cards and CPUs. The 12V rail delivers at least 96 per cent of the total power and therefore offers enough reserve capacity for overclocking or system upgrades. By applying high-quality components and a modern PSU circuit, LEPA minimizes the power losses. With a peak efficiency of 92 per cent, the GM series fulfills the requirements of the international energy-saving certificate 80 PLUS Gold. The BM power supplies reach up to 88 per cent efficiency and possess the 80 PLUS Bronze seal.

Refined Cooling System for Most Silent Operation
LEPA has put effort in the development of a low-noise product: The fan of the GM and BM power supplies is based on a durable Hydraulic bearing that works almost frictionless. In the models with 700 watts and more, LEPA has applied large-size 13.5 cm fans. That way, it is possible to reach a high air flow rate at a lower speed and lower noise generation, compared to power supplies with a smaller fan.

Q-Brick: Smart Innovation from LEPA
LEPA has well-equipped the new BM and GM power supplies: The semi-modular cable management offers a variety of connectors for all possible configurations. Starting from 700 watts, the power supplies come with four PCI-E connectors to support strong multi-GPU systems. A unique feature of the GM and BM series is the brand-new "Q-Brick" rubber frame. It reduces vibrations and ensures an effective decoupling of the power supply. Depending on the individual taste, users can choose between a striking red or plain black frame.

Availability and Prices
The BM series (MaxBron) is available with 450, 550, 700, 800 and 1000 watts. The GM series (MaxGold) comes in four versions with 500, 600, 700 and 800 watts. The new LEPA power supplies will be on sale soon.

Lepa is not a very known brand here so the steep prices for the gold series will make it hard for them to compete with, say, Seasonic's G series. If I were looking for a cheapish Bronze Unit I might actually try their MB line-up though, provided that independent reviews give good results for ripple and noise.

Not the best, but a solid 8.5 by Johnny Guru, which is enough for me to have some faith in their quality.

LEPA is a brand of Enermax. Some LEPA models are rebranded Enermax units with cosmetic changes, others have internal modifications to cut the costs.

LEPA's high end series is built by Enermax while their mid-range series is built by CWT. But these BM and GM series are both built by Yue Lin.

Yeah. I mean they sell what Enermax sells, sometimes with some changes. OEMs are Enermax, CWT, Sirfa/High Power and now Yue-Lin.
