Hiper 580W Modular PSU HPU-4B580
atx 2.2 12 Device connections SATA, APFC, SILENT 14db BLUE LED 92mm FANS SLI READY
Description:On the Type R Hiper use a design patented mesh body. This allows directional convection thereby lowering the need for forced air (Fan) which in turn means lower fan RPM and noise. Also as a side effect it lowers weight, as you notice even using all these techniques our Type R is still quiet heavy. This brought us to the need for a new package which can take the punishment most delivery people dish out while protecting all the circuitry inside, so was born the Type R tool box. We wanted to do something new with the Modular connections as the existing ones in the market were un-secure. With modding in mind we designed the Omnigrid TM connectors to resolve this issue. With connections for up to 12 devices, Advanced APFC (NON American Models), after shut down cooling function, over and under Voltage and Temp protection circuits, and ATX 2.2 this represents the latest in Power generation Technology.

up2thejob? by bob
I'm thinking of sticking one of these in an "Antec Three Hundred Cool and Quiet Gaming Case" with a "Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R" and an "intel Dual Core E2180" (o/c'ed to 3ghz (or more) probably) plus some ocz reaper ddr2, not sure about the gfx card yet, but it'll probably be a 9600gt. I'll not be wasting my money on sli (or ati), not now, nor in the future ! I will be upgrading to ddr3 eventually, presuming latencies improve, I might even get a blu-ray writer (but only for backup purposes) tho' it seems to me hard drives are far better alternatives (even externals). The CPU will probably get upgraded to a quad (eventually). And the question is ...
is this p.s. upto the job ?
Yep - certainly should be!
Hiper 580W Modular PSU by Max
Recieved mine this afternoon.
The power supply is shipped in a robust, sturdy toolbox, which was an immediate plus in my book. Lifting the PSU itself out of the box, you can feel the quality. The metal is smooth and heavy, and it feels well-built.
Plugging in all the connectors was easy, and has really helped to clean out the cable clutter in my case. While under load (playing FarCry for example) the PSU is completely silent, and it really looks the part with its two blue LED fans - really looks great with the rest of my blue LED fans through my case window.
Even after shutting down your PC, the power supply continues to cool itself with the rear 80mm fan, though the LEDs turn off. This is fantastic - my old Xilence 480W was always very hot after a long gaming session.
I'm using this to power an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ @ 2.4GHz, 2Gb of RAM, an ATI Radeon X1950 (OC'd), 3 hard disk drives and 2 optical drives, along with 4 LED fans and an SB X-Fi. No problems at all. My old Xilence used to cut out during games such as Quake 4 and F.E.A.R. No issues here.

I purchased one of these soon as they came out and what could I say about it. The looks of this little badboy yeah it's snazzy looking. but don't be deceived by the way this psu looks, it's a beast of a unit, it handles my computer system very nicely. I have been used to installing OEM psu's but this one seriously caught my attention. I especially love the cabling management system, just makes the inside of my computer a lot more cleaner than a standard psu and increased the airflow, only because its neat and tidy inside the computer.
I also love the packaging, very similar to a fishing tackle box, which is great for storing all those annoying screws, and other tidbits that I normally leave around my workspace.. I have had no problems with this psu whatsoever. and I would definatly recommend getting one of these.

These are understanding PSU's. I have had one for around 4 months now and it is still as quiet as it was the day I installed it. One little thing to point out, these are pretty heavy so make sure your case has a support bar for the PSU to rest on, I don't think just the screws would hold this reliably over time :)

Very stable PSU but do make sure your mobo is compatible. Will not work on older boards that require the -5V (negative) input as this is not provided. My PSU was D.O.A. Aria said to return via Hiper so spoke to Hiper and they swapped it no problem. (Actually collected direct from factory in Milton Keynes) so 10/10 for customer support from Hiper.
