Edit: In some ways the Silverstone is better quality. The cables are an easier more positive fit into the PSU end. Neither of them have their own on/off switch.
...in your situation, notwithstanding the other RIVF system, I would hook Sliverstone and Lepa together...with 3100 watts, what could possibly go wrong ?....other than HOMECINEMA getting his hands on it to power his new black RIVE SE
OK, I'll hold off on using it with the RIVF (work machine). I'll see if the RIVE (play machine) copes at full OC with LEPA alone..if not...back to 2 PSU...
EDIT: So far a bit disappointed with the LEPA. Fully overclocked, everything shut down in the first test of 3DMark11. If I have CPU OC only, no problem. Still experimenting, but looking like i may still need a second PSU.
There are two ways to connect the mobo 8 pin and 4 pin with the LEPA. I'll try the other way.... brb.
No combo worked. With a Vantec Ion2 620W powering card four, no problems.
If one could go on my experience alone, the the Silverstone 1500W is a better unit. Plugs clip in more positively (LEPA plugs have slighly softer plastic for plugs...need high pressure to get catches to click in.) The Silverstone does not "turn off" at full draw, the system just blackscreens...usually needing restart to recover. Somehow I find that preferable, but may be just what I'm used to. The "extra" 100W over the Silverstone rating was not enough. No gain.Edited by alancsalt - 9/11/13 at 8:23am
