1 HIPER Type-R Modular Red 580W ATX 2.2

2 Kingston ValueRAM KVR400X64C3A/1G 1024Mb/1Gb

Honestly, (you asked....) less money on "bling" and more money on your ram, to start with!


That ram won't cut it in a DFI board. Go with G.Skill, OCZ, or other "recommended" ram here:



Also, you might want to take a look at the "recommended" PSU list here:



Hipers aren't very well known here, and not too many members use modular PSU's. I've seen people have problems with Hipers that turned out to be due to the connectors they use.

with all those fans it's gonna run real cool.


Even if the overall build quality of the aeroengine 3t isn't superb.

It's a heck of a lot better than those raidmax ones. Perhaps

i'm just spoiled, with my stacker.


I've got the Hiper psu, gotta say, it's one of the better psus. Running

my system clocked 24/7. not a hinch. And it looks cool to ^^


The Ultra-D is a really good choice..... got one to.


Though, the one thing I can complain about. The ram.

Even if you don't overclock, someday that idea is gonna

spring in your skull. And you don't want to have valueram

at that point...


My recommendation is to read around reviews of the ultra-d and see

what kind of memory the board likes. I can tell you that one of the best choices lie

with OCZ, you can't go wrong.


Peace out

Any kind of "value ram" in that is a crapshoot, read around the forums and you shall see what I mean. Get yourself some good ram and you will reduce the intake of aspirin and need to duct tape your mouth when the kiddies are around.


The psu isnt on the golden list, but it might work.......

As long as its 480w minimum and native 24 pin

But if it smokes your system, your gonna be pissy.......

I have that case, and it's pretty decent, wish it was a tad bigger and had a differnt HD rack and such, but hopefuly I get around to modding it to what I want. I suggest taking out the 14cm fan and putting a high flow 12cm one in. I have 4 12 cm fans in mine, and it's pretty sweet. just make sure that you get a video card cooler that blows air out of the case, not towards the front!!


EDIT: Your vid card is fine with that stock cooler, I didn't read that much, just saw what case you were getting, and figured I'd let you know about that, but you dont need to!


I have RAM for sale if you want better RAM!!

here's the link to it..it's brand new

hiper PSU are fine, im using one and its rock stable


agree to disagree. i have had a friend kill 2 of these PSU's they are very similar to the Ultra X-Connect some people love them, most dont.


PS: I owned an Ultra X-Connect and had no problems with it.


I would suggest some different RAM whether it be OCz or GSkill.

Thanks all for your fast replies ! most appreciated ... Where I'm getting my PC only these are maybe good enough for OC.


GeIL Ultra 512Mb DDR PC3200 2-3-3 400MHz with Heatsink+ temp sensor




Corsair TWINXP1024-3200XL 2x512Mb (tot. 1024Mb) DDR PC3200 2-2-2-5 400Mhz Xtra Low Latency with Xpert Display





Are these any good ?

The Hiper is fine. It's only fault is it lacks the 8 pin power.

But you're not using an Expert board.
