Hiper Type-R Modular Blue Line 580W Power Supply Unit

Reviews

Most users underestimate the necessity of a good, reliable and high quality power supply unit. They usually do not understand that it is the driving force for the whole system and it can affect reliability and stability substantially. An inadequate power supply unit will cause instability of the system at best, it may overload and burnout attached components in the worst case scenario. Cheap power supply units also offer no protection, which means that they may blow up even by a small power surge and, if they have no internal protection as well, they will most probably destroy most parts of the system that are connected to the power supply. Hence companies began releasing stronger and stronger power supply units, which grow more powerful and reliable with each passing day. On the other hand, we have modders who like to have very good looking systems but also need a reliable power supply unit. This is a bit of headache for most manufacturers, since such units which are reliable, strong but also good looking are often considerably expensive. Yet someone comes to claim that they have a power supply unit which can offer everything, which includes excellent performance, reliability and appearance at an affordable price. Hiper (High Performance Group) recently released the Type-R modular blue line HPU-4B580 power supply unit, which is competitively priced and claims to be able to offer everyone what they want and require. Hiper was nice enough to have us take a look of the unit, so we will shortly know if it can stand up to its claims.

Features

  • Unique user friendly modular design to reduce excess cables.

  • Patented design device extension cables.
  • Supports ATX up to v2.2 & Intel BTX configuration.
  • Complies with all Intel & AMD CPU specification requirement.

To sum up, I do not believe that the only negative point of the unit can compare to all the positive points that the Hiper Type-R Modular Blue Line 580W has. Since the only negative point applies only to a few cases available on the market where most power supply units have the exact same problem. I believe wholeheartedly that the Hiper Type-R Modular Blue Line 580W does deserve the first 10 out of 10 score that I ever gave in my tens of reviews up to now and our Xtreme Award.
