1x 24 pin + 4 pin ATX
1x 24 pin + 1x P4 + 1x P8
1x 24 pin + EPS/ATX12V 8-4 pin
any of the above will work then?...lol
Yeah, pretty much.

that one has my eyes on it!
It does have a good price. An alternative would be the Corsair 750: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/134677. I'm not sure which one is cheaper after shipping but either one is good.

do you get converter / connectors for 24 to 20 pins?
The Corsair comes with a 20+4 so just disconnect the extra and the Hiper only has a 24 pin. The extra 4 pins will just hang over the edge, no problem.

I would go with the corsair shin linked - I was about to link that. Free delivery is always good and it also gives you a bit of breating room with future tech.

doesn't matter if the Hiper 780 or any other PSU comes with a 24 pin atx connector....
the extra 4 pins just over hang...
just like the 8 pin thing for the 4 pin connector?

its all getting technical...thing...jing...bit....

ma heads bust!


so...still safe to go to misco after work tomorrow and get the hiper 780 / 630.
i am just thinking of the 780 as a future proof for SLi'n it one day...
but thats another debate all together!

£56 for the 630w HiperPower to run a

Yup, no worries with the extra plugs hanging over the edge. They do make adapters for this sort of thing but there is no reason to use them since all they do is add resistance when the plug will still fit just fine.

Looks good to me. 50A on the 12V rail will power any of those just fine.
