Hiper Type M HPU-4M880-PE V1
The next model belongs to the same 4M series as the previous one, but its wattage is higher by 200W.
The packaging and accessories do not differ: a gray cardboard box containing the PSU, a user manual, a power cord of the intricate design with changeable plugs (as shown in the photo in the previous section), and a set of adapters and splitters.
The PSU has a matte black case with meshed side panels and a nonstandard design of the front panel. The mains connectors and the On/Off switch are in the middle while the top 35 millimeters of the panel are blank, without vent holes. Why did the manufacturer worsen the cooling of the PSU in such a way? Why is not the entire external panel perforated? It’s because the housing is unified for different PSU models. The 5M series I am going to discuss later on puts this part of the panel to an unobvious use.
The internal design is not much different from that of the 680W model except that the heatsinks have got more serious and ribbed. The PSU’s electronics is based on a Champion Micro CM6800G controller that combines an active PFC device with a main regulator.
The capacitors at the PSU’s output now belong to the KZE series from United Chemi-Con. The brand is well-known and enjoys good reputation for its high-quality products.
Like in the previous model, the cables are divided into groups depending of their purpose (mainboard, CPU, drives, graphics card). The PSU offer the following cables and connectors:
- Mainboard cable with a 24-pin connector (60cm)
- CPU cable with an 8-pin connector (60cm)
- Graphics card cable with one 8-pin and one 6-pin connector (45+4cm)
- Graphics card cable with one 8-pin and one 6-pin connector (55+4cm)
- Cable with one Molex connector (34cm)
- Cable with one Molex connector (44cm)
- Cable with one Molex connector (64cm)
- Two cables with two SATA power connectors on each (49+15cm)
- USB cable (65cm)
Included with the PSU are Molex→2xMolex and Molex→Molex+FDD splitters as well as two adapters from graphics card’s 8-pin into 6-pin connectors. Thus, the PSU can power up any modern system, even with two top-end graphics cards in SLI/CrossFire mode, easily and without any additional adapters. You may only run short of SATA connectors if you are going to assemble a computer with more than two HDDs (plus one optical drive).
