    Hiper Type-R Poll

    I ordered a Hiper type R 580w from scan yesterday on today only as i fancied going modular. I was struggling to decide if i should due to the very mixed reviews this PSU has recieved online but in the end i went for it as it was only £55. I am interested to hear the the thoughts of others who have had experience with this PSU. So I thought i would do a poll.
    Thanks
    Scott

    Got my Hiper TypeR 580w running with my new X1900XT and it seems perfectly fine. I've never really had any problems with it.

    Had the TypeR for around a year now, quality PSU in my opinion.

    I have a 580W Hiper PSU but not a Type-R as i didnt want the blue LED. I have to say that i havent had any issues (touch wood) and have been runnin an OC Opty and now an X1800XT which is pretty power hungry and as i said, its been fine so far...

    The only difference between mine and the one youre getting is modular (I'm good at tidying them away) and the colour, as mine is black...

    The voltage output is fairly stable, but 12V is overvolted slightly.

    The PSU seems to keep its fan on when shutted down, so I would recommend to turn of mains when you don't use the machine, or it might fry the PSU's standby circuit (think mine did once).

    The cables are very easily damaged (between the wire and the plug), especially the molex one.

    Yep, Rig as sig, the fan keeps running as a saftey feature, it goes for about a minute after the PC is shutdown to prevent damage to the PSu components and to the rest of the PC as all the other fans have been turned off. Top PSU, massive fan of it, great look, great stability and very easy to use.

    Just recently bought one of these myself. Had a fault with the first one I received, but Scan swapped it out and the new one is working perfectly. It's very quiet, looks good (if that's important to you) and the modular approach is definately the way to go. I used to have a whole pile of unused cables tucked into spare drive bays, but now my PC interior is a well ordered and tidy place.

    I ordered one from scan last week along with a few other bits, it's currently sitting in my old low-specced machine, waiting for my new PC to be complete

    Can't fault it at all, looks great (i got the black one, don't like LEDs) and tidy, plus I only need about 2 cables coming out of it at the moment as well.
