The LEPA B850 is a little odd when you look at it behind the scenes, as it is a low cost Enermax PSU but it is made by Sirfa.  That kind of inbreeding is not exceptional when it comes to PSUs but is sometimes worth noting.  It sports an 80+ Bronze rating and its four 12V rails are split between a pair of 20A and a pair of 30A rails which makes it worth your while to determine which plugs are feeding your GPU.  It passed the [H]ard|OCP torture tests which qualify it as a decent PSU but [H] had several caveats about purchasing this PSU.  First is the warranty which might be between 3 and 5 years or maybe 2 years, it is hard to tell from the documentation.  Second was the value as Enermax already has the NAXN line which is comparable to LEPA and that competitors like XFX and Corsair offer products that are at least as good and cost less than this LEPA unit.

"For those of you that do not know, LEPA is what we would call Enermax' low cost "house brand" of PSU. No, it specifications are not up to those of most worthy Enermax units, but then again, neither is the price. How does LEPA do with its second unit reviewed here at HardOCP?"
