I have a Hiper 580W Type R power supply that went with a loud pop and a smell of smoke recently. Fortunately now other components were harmed but I'm wondering if I am able to RMA the PSU?

The situation is that this Hiper PSU is actually a replacement of the original PSU that also met an untimely demise. The original was purchased in Jan of 06 but I don't recall when I RMA'd it for the one that died recently.

Similar here. Id try to get an rma out of hiper, and sell on whatever they sent out. However I would not put the replacement back into my computer

I used to have a Hiper Type-R. Replaced a long-time ago with a Corsair.

Me too.

I thought my Hiper was out of waranty so didn't RMA, then found I still had a year left when it went pop. All too late thought as I wated 18 Months to find out. Doh!
