    its over a year old so probably have to go straight to hiper. You usually only get 1 year with your supplier then the rest is with the manafacturer.

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=386404 check the warranty tab on here..seems its 1 year with scan 2 with hiper on this one.

    All reliable PSU manufacturers have at least a three year warranty (not sure if Hiper fall in that category though).

    Regardless of whether its under Scan or Hiper, its easier to return to Hiper if out of the 'replacement warranty' with Scan.

    The only type r I could find was the 730w, but the warrentry is prob the same as yours, it's 36months (3 years), first year back to scan, 2nd - 3rd year subject to manufacturers warranty with Cooler Master.
