yeah i saw that review. it is the ONLY one out of like 10 ive read that has been negitive. even such i dont even know what would use the -12v line and its importance. im sure once in a while EVERY power supply might fall out of spec.

I have the 580 havent used it yet still need some more parts... but any ways over at custompc

they test similar to toms hardware the hiper scored similar to the ocz powerstream.

 

as long as your not runing TEC's and water cooling pumps and a whole lot of hd's I wouldnt worrie about it. I would say it is way better than the modstream. Close if not tide with the powerstream. And it is sli certified. Which must have happend after the package was made as it only states sli ready even though it is listed on that certifaction site.

I think that toms hardware and custom pc perform similar tests. As the ocz failed there tests too. But the way I look at it is The hiper is rated at 580 watts. the mojority of computers built today wont use more than 400watts max. and will probly be closer to 300watts even that seems preaty high for a standard system. So if the hiper is what you want then go for it. I mean sure its not the very best that money can buy and it is over priced but its the sexiest psu on the market.

is the Hiper 580 compatable with the DFI Expert board?

 

There's something about a "REQUIRED" 8pin connector which very few PSU's seem to have...?

 

anyone know?

There is no 8 pin connector. Some people will say it's OK to just use the 4 pin connector in the 8 pin slot but I wouldn't do it. However, there are 4 pin to 8 pin adapters available & most reviews claim it works well.

I'd stay away from the 20 pin to 24 pin adapter. but you won't need it.
