Your opinions on Hiper PSUs

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried Hiper "Type-R" PSUs? Are they any good? On their site it says they're SLi ready, does that mean its plug and play for my Asus A8N32-SLi Deluxe?

Would you recommend the PSU?

Yep, but beware.

You get some good ones, but I dont reccomend them. Even though your system will never use 580W, it cannot run at that wattage. It blows up. A nice PSU for a 7800GT system, but not a SLI 7800GTX one.

Many people report screeching and clicking sounds. I dont think you should get it.

Instead look at the Tagan EasyCon 530W or the Enermax Liberty 500W. Both great PSU's.

Good luck mate.

Oh, wow, thats bad, any other PSUs that you recommend?

By the way, can the get the Tagan EasyCon 530W here in Canada?

Also, I'm hearing stuff about the OCZ Modstream 520W, how is it?

And also the OCZ PowerStream Power Supply (SLI Ready) 520W.

Modstreams kick ass.
post #7 of 13
Folks dont like the Modstream too much. But the Powerstream is highly awarded.

Go for that, or the Enermax liberty. Also, the SUNBEAM NUUO 550W is a great PSU too. Modular.

Hiper have excellent PSUs. There have been reports of the 580W having trouble at absolute maximum load, but not many PCs stress a PSU to its absolute limit. I personally have never had a burp out of my 480W TypeR, it has steady rails and quiet operation. I will be getting another 6800GS for SLi at the end of the month, it remains to be seen if it can handle that. I have no SLi connectors so I'll be using 4 molexes

I'm going to buy a 600W SeaSonic S12 in the near future too, and they are about the best PSU you can buy apart from possibly PC Power and Cooling. I don't like Enermax as a brand, Antec have a couple of good PSUs and so do Fortron.

For referance, there are not many manufacturers of PSUs, most (OCZ, Antec etc..) are re-branded. Fortron, SeaSonic, PCP&C and Zippy make their own PSUs, and I'd tend to stick with the actual makers not just people who slap a sticker on another unit.

I was considering the OCZ PowerStream Power Supply (SLI Ready) 520W and the Tagan EasyCon 530W. But I read a review saying,

"Although only a four-pin +12V connector is present, a further four pins can be added with a removable cable for boards that need an eight-pin type 12V connector."

What's that mean? Would I need to purchase a special 8-pin connector for the A8N32-SLi Deluxe if I get the Tagan PSU?

Also, muffin has a good point about some manufacturers just putting fancy labels on units that were just re-branded.

It will most likely be an adapter for motherboards with an 8-pin P4 connector instead of the usual (old) 4-pin. As far as I know, the only motherboard so far with an 8-pin plug is the DFI SLI-DR Expert? But it works with a 4-pin connector anyway...
