    PSU: Tagan or Hyper Type R

    I want a 580watt PSU. Was looking at the Tagan but a couple of people have pointed out the Hyper Type R as an alternative because its cheaper.
    I'm of the mind "You get what you pay for."

    I've seen articles with pro's and con's for both.
    What I would like to hear about is some real world experience with either.

    Anyone care to comment ?

    My friend has one of these Hiper Type-R and its brilliant.
    Here are the pros:
    1) its volts are extremely stable
    2) its modular and so unused cables can be unused
    3) it looks good
    4) its fan stays on after system shutdown to exhaust and remaining heat
    5) its modular cable system is brilliant and is extremely easy to install
    6) its silent
    Here are the cons:
    1) it's modular connector is a bit long and so you have to consider the clearance between the PSU and any other objects, this was a problem for my Antec P180 so I had to get a different PSU
    2) it can get smeared/scratched pretty easily and so you need to be careful when handling it as its coat is pretty but easily damaged

    Any more info required just ask

    Tagan here...and you may even go for a lower spec one and find its fine and good as gold.

    But they DO WEIGH A LOT :-)

    (nice heatsinks inside )

    Only thing I'd prefer is an Antec TruePower, but Scan sadly dont do them. Tagan rock though.

    Tagan's are good, they are also modular like the Hiper's, so cables can be removed.

    Team Seasonic.

    Sorry, couldn't resist

    Noise wise at least, it is highly impressive (less noisy than both my Antec Truepower and Enermax Noisetaker at the lowest setting).

    Edit: Although it is not for DFI boards...

    Depends whether you want one that looks good They are both good (not top) quality units, the Hiper is British, although I'm not sure that's a good or a bad thing (Tagan is German I think). Oh and the Hiper also comes with a handy box!

    Personally I am building a blue/uv case so I am going for the blue Hiper.

    Is the Tagan quieter than the Seasonic range?

    Another vote for the Hiper, superb PSU and the box is fantastic, very useful for all those spare PC bits.

    Tagan is very nice, my mates got the modular one, it's good.

    I've got the Enermax Liberty, modular, it's silent too, the 120mm fan actually stops when the PSU is cool enough. Solid rails. But then the tagan should do the same.

    I've got the 480W Hiper Type R. I rate it highly and plays nice with my DFI NF4-Ultra-D + Opteron. It's quite light too and has a 120mm fan in.

    Whichever one you go for don't forget to use a surge protector!
