I fitted an S12-500 this week, after reading lots of good things about it here... Mine is pleasantly warm to the touch on top, no discomfort at all. Just as well really, as I tucked the 8 pin 12V connector and the SLI connectors up there to keep them out of the way. The PSU fan doesn't run very fast...

Hiper Type R

hi I've not looked into the Tagan, but I have read extensively on the hiper Type R, as this PSU appealed to me - I thought it would be a quiter replacement for my Thermaltake... Anyway, I found many many utterly trivial reviews, where they basically look at it, jumpstart it, and then put it away aga...
