Hiper are a well known company among enthusiasts and that’s mainly because of their power supplies which have been released in the past few years. Despite their large variety of products however they didn’t have anything to compete in the 1kW+ PSU sector. That’s until today as Hiper just released a very promising product, the M1000. Hiper claims that the M1000 is a very high performance 1kW unit regardless of the relatively low price of the product. Let us see how well the latest and most powerful Hiper PSU will perform.

You will find all of the extra cables and connectors, the modular AC power cable, a basic manual, several black cable straps and both an UK and EU plug and 4 screws.
