    R.I.P

    My faithfull ex Hiper Type R 580W died quietly in it's sleep.

    Born in May 2006 it worked hard an provided excellent service.

    As much as some of the Hiper PSU's had a reputation of going bang this one must have been one of the good ones

    My old hiper is still powering my old x58 system I sold to a mate, along with my old gtx770 and a couple of other bits. It has never missed a beat. He just uses it for videos etc.

    My 580w TypeR was my fave of all PSU's.
    The box it came in is awesome. The modular system was awesome.
    Mine died roughly a year ago, having been in my first ever own built PC, from roughly 2008

    This thread has moved me more than all the recent celebrity deaths. I'm off to light a candle for the succession of cheap power supplies that blew up on me in the late nineties.

    i had passed mine on to another person.

    Went against all my better judgement and bought a CIT 550W 80+ Bronze PSU for 25

    Must admit very pleasantly surprised by the build quality...

    Although 2 x 6+2 PCIE connectors on a 550W is asking for trouble imho.

    And I am sure the warranty was showing as 2 years when I ordered it, but now showing 1...

    I think I actually had one of those back in the day, had to replace it after a few years (it died). Think mine had that metallic blue paint, that looked pretty cool. My Dad replaced it with some Jeantech 650w Chinese rubbish which somehow survived a few years before I replaced with an XFX 650W back in 2010.

    Come to think of it, I'm still running that same XFX PSU in my rig now, almost 7 years later. Good effort XFX/Seasonic.
