The tendencies of the past several years prove that contemporary customers are rather demanding as to the overall characteristics of their PCs, so to their singular hardware components. Those demands primarily touch upon performance, efficiency and power-saving properties of products, however, design and ergonomics are given much attention as well. PSU devices are not an exclusion, and customers tend to choose not only high-end products with outstanding parameters, but also products with compact dimensions and attractive design. Thus, PSU manufacturers try to comply with the modern tendencies and release devices for people with various demands. PSU Hiper K900 is the product destined for customers with heightened requirements to the performance and moderate desires as to its design.
Design and Delivery Kit
Hiper K900 design is characterized by simplicity and observance of traditional forms. The casing is made of dull black plastic which combines with the silver-color fan arms. The rear plate contains a grid of cell-like form. The clipboard accommodates sockets for the connection with the alternative current network. The top plate is notable for the availability of the brand sticker with PSU specifications. The fan is located on the bottom part of the casing and radiates by the chrome-based cover. The casing is also equipped with the blue LED which entirely lights up the device.
The nominal delivery kit of PSU Hiper K900 consists of two segments. The upper, detachable segment, embraces the removable cables, a set of fixing screws in two variants (for manual and instrumental layout), and a cable for the alternative current network connection. The lower segment includes the PSU itself, and multi-language user manual useful while installation and usage.
Hiper K900 belongs to the series of high-end and powerful PSU. The major distinctive peculiarity of this device is modular cable connection system with sockets for the power supply from the PSU inboard. Such layout allows removing the unused wires and leave the space for other components. K900 efficiency is warranted by 80Plus certificate, verifying its belonging to the army of reliable products. This PSU is able to support AMD CrossFire and Nvidia SLI technologies.
PSU Hiper K900 accommodates a couple of cables with three Molex sockets, a single FDD socket, a couple of cables with PCI-E slots, and two cables with four SATA power sockets on each. In addition, this PSU is equipped with stationary 24-contact cable for motherboard power supply, and 8-, 4+4-contact cables for the supplementary CPU slot supply.
It should be mentioned that the set of interfaces is sufficient for the connection with a large number of hard drives, peripheral accessories, as well as, a couple of high-end graphics cards in Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFire X configurations. Nevertheless, the chief benefit of Hiper K900 is the possibility to enable all the afore-stated interfaces simultaneously. Moreover, this device is considered to be power-saving due to the gilded coverage of power sockets.
Hiper K900 is characterized by high efficiency level which reaches 80%. Heat removal process (from the internal components) is realized with the help of three aluminum radiators. The layout is rather strict and components are not in contact with each other. 12V wire is divided into four buses; each of the bus is able to support up to 34A current intensity. The wire length is middle-size; it is enough for their implementation in chassis of Mini-Tower, Midi-Tower and Full-Tower form-factor with the top PSU location.
All other specifications of Hiper K900 can be dwindled down to:
nominal capacities: 800W, crucial capacity – 1000W;
efficiency index: >80%;
support of the latest Intel and AMD CPU;
cooling system: low-noise 140 mm fan;
security standards: OCP, OPP, OVP, OTP, SCP.
Hiper K900 cooling system is represented by a 140 mm fan with the external grid. The casing has got ventilation holes for better airflow and heat removal. The fan is characterized by the low-noise levels in operational mode: the noise level does not exceed 18 dB. All basic semiconductor elements are installed on the integrated three radiators.
