  1. The Hiper is nice. However, there is no 8 pin connector for those boards that require it. The adapter has worked for me. I did, however, use the Hiper in a rig not requiring the 8 pin connector. I'm very happy with it. For those who don't like modular PSUs because of the connections to the PSU should take a close look at how the Hiper does it. It's great.
  2. The original Hipers had some minor problems, however they are now better. Tom's Hardware Guide just did another critique of some PSU's & the Hiper did very well.
  3. I agree about the high overclock. Did you try turning it down?
  4. Your case & the Zalman 9500 will work together very well. If you have the Expert mobo it will be even better.
  5. The rig w/ the power on problem had a Hiper 580 PSU. $119.00 http://www.xoxide.com/hiper-power-supply-black.html However I'd get an OCZ PSU w/ all the proper connectors. The Hiper lacks the 8 pin connector but the adapter is working fine. I've since moved the Hiper into an Intel rig where it's working great.
  6. I'm not sure where I read this but somewhere someone said that if you push your power button real fast the computer will boot up. Something about the switch distance etc. I had one rig that suffered from the no boot after shut down symdrone & I tried the rapid power on & it worked. Before that I just powered off my surge protector & then powered up. Try the fast power button depression. It worked for me.
  7. It requires a Windows repair not a reformat. Please create a signature. The info therein is helpful.
  8. There are only going to be 1000 of them built.

  11. Isn't ABit a failing company? I thought I had read somewhere that the company was in dire straits. If so I'd stay away.
  12. With the 2 rear exhaust fans that your case provides you might look at the Zalman 9500. It will exhaust right into your case fans.
  13. I would think the 120mm rear case fan would draw better than the PSU fans.

  15. I'm using the Hiper in a Pentium rig. It works fine. If it had the 8 pin power connector it would be sitting in my AMD setup. I didn't want to try the adapter. However, I'm going to buils another DFI expert based system & the Hiper is going into that.
  16. I think the Zalman website has a compatability chart.
  17. Your PSU might be a little on the weak side. Do you have another you can try?
  18. It's a BIOS setting. Adjust it if you like. If the processor is running cool the fan will not be needed. You can change the threshold.
  19. I was thinking of the front connections on the case. Motherboard drivers all installed?
