Introduction

We have reviewed many high quality power supply units from a wide array of manufacturers on DriverHeaven this year. Today we will put another power supply unit under the spotlight, one from High Performance Group (or Hipergroup). Hipergroup is a relatively new PC components manufacturer; however their highly competitive products have allowed them to grow very quickly in the market.

The unit we will review is the 5M730 and comes from the “Type-M” product series, which consists of top performance but non-modular power supply units. With a 730W continuous output and 930W peak output, it surely is a very powerful high-class power supply unit. It only remains to see if it has enough features and performance good enough to justify the ≈140€ (inc VAT) price tag. Let us have a closer look at it.
