    Some people report no problems (such as yourself) but in no way, shape or form can this PSU be a good recommendation for anything other than a low-mid end system.

    I've never seen any complaints about the Type-R's and they usually come highly recommended in reviews etc. About the only thing it couldn't do is 2 8800's.

    Like i said....a few people encounter no problems.

    I disagree with your comments about the 8800's being the only limit.

    If you out 2 x 7series cards in a rig with a Hiper R your 12V rails would become very flakey and put strain on your other components aswell.

    Remember, just because the machine comes to life, it doesnt mean that no damaged or excessive wear on other components isnt taking place.

    These PSUs are definitely too weak to consistently deliver good, clean power to SLI/Croosfire/Mid to High range systems.

    The fact that there ARE PSUs out there that are around £5-£10 more and are far far better is the confusing thing for me.
    A Corsair 520W, a Enermax Liberty 500W, a Antec NeoHE 500W are just some examples of PSUs that deliver much cleaner power under tighter tolerances for literally a couple of quid more.

    If the Hiper works for you then thats great.
    But as a recommendation as a good PSU then its nowhere near that and really shouldnt be.

    Well, after recommending them, I am currently on-the-fence now

    My original 580w Type-R died, 14 months after purchase. Started not wanting to boot up and finally went completely. Hiper have a 2yr warranty and they keep saying they will get someone to contact me regarding an RMA but that person never does, I then contact them again and they tell me someone will contact you shortly......the cycle seems to be never ending (almost a month of this now)...

    Now, I replaced it with the 720w modular they do and I cannot overclock my PC any more, it randomly reboots for no reason at all. Everything else is the same and its driving me nuts. A few times now I have thought that the problem is gone but within 48hours I get another reboot. Putting the CPU back to stock stops them but it seems as either the rail cannot handle the additional power draw or there is an instability between the rails due to uneven power draw (something that's been appearing recently with multi-rail PSUs and high-power gfx cards it seems....)

    I am currently awaiting a Seasonic M12-700 to hopefully remedy the situation (would have gone Corsair but PSU calculator says my system needs ~610w mainly due to the 8800GTX and 6 HDDs, so the 620w seems a little too close for comfort)........If it does, then I will most certainly be staying well clear of all Hiper products in the future, as well as multi-rail PSUs. It seems the experts have gone full-circle and are now saying that the most stable PSUs are those with a single rail.

    Single rail PSUs are good for some, much the same as dual rails are good for some aswell.

    DFI boards prefer single 12V rail PSUs.

    SLI systems run better under Dual 12V rails.

    The Dual rail thing though can be not straightforward at all.
    There are some PSUs that 'profess' to be dual rail and in fact are not. They use the same source point inside.

    If you get a TRUE dual 12V rail PSU it will perform great.

    There is no doubting, as far as PSUs are concerned, you definitely get what you pay for!

    The amount of mugs you see spend £500+ on just a Mobo/GPU/CPU then putting a sub £50, no name PSU in never fails to amaze me.

    Just a note on the Hipers. Persuaded by the good reviews I bought a Hiper Type R Modular 580w just over two years ago. It just completely died, and I guess now that it has probably been responsible for a few oddities in recent months (OC became a bit unstable, PC just switched off a couple of times).

    Meanwhile my old Enermax 450w, now powering my sons PC, is still going strong...

    No more Hipers for me. The Infiniti arrives tomorrow, 3 months earlier than planned.

    Fitted my M12 last night, proceeded to overclock back to 3.5GHz, ran games for ~5 hours and then left running Orthos overnight....

    Either its the biggest fluke I ever saw or the PSU has solved my issues.

    I don't think I'd touch another Hiper with a bargepole.
