, or High Performance Group, is a manufacturer of high end computer components that was founded in 2001. Considering that so many companies that sponsor reviews with Bigbruin.com are located in California, Hiper’s address in Milton Keynes (which is just to the northwest of London, England) makes them rather unique.
Their location isn’t the only interesting thing about them, and they have made quite a splash with their power supplies, which were some of the first to incorporate a unique user friendly modular design to reduce excess cables. If you look through their portfolio you will see that all of their products emphasize a level of detail that may be higher than similar products from other manufacturers.
The company recently introduced a line of cases which appears to follow with the same high level of detail and finish. In this review we will be discussing the all new Hiper Osiris ATX tower case shown in the promotional image above. If the word Osiris seems like an unusual name to you, it is derived from the Egyptian name for their god of life, death, and fertility. While an interesting name, I’m not exactly sure what they are trying to imply here. Maybe after this review I’ll decide that 2 children are not enough and shoot for three.
Before taking a closer look at the Osiris case provided for review, let's look at some published data taken from the Hiper
website, as well as from Newegg.com
