Hiper Osiris ATX Tower Case
June 04, 2008

Installation:

The following components were installed in the Hiper Osiris ATX tower case for this review:

» Intel Core 2 Duo e6420 2.13 GHz dual core processor w/stock cooler.
» Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 Intel motherboard
» 2GB Corsair CM2X1024-6400C4 4-4-4-12
» Western Digital 80GB IDE hard drive
» Hiper TYPE M 880W PSU
» EVGA 7600GT KO edition video card
» Pioneer 20X DVD±R DVD burner
» Generic black floppy drive

With all of the components ready, it is time to take a look at the hardware. Hiper shipped all the hardware in a zip pouch which may come in handy for other purposes. The hardware was packaged in four bags with labels stating their contents. There were also three vented expansion slot covers, five Velcro zip ties, two 3-pin to 4-pin Molex fan adapters, and a keychain. The keychain has the cases production number stamped on it. Also not pictured is a brief instruction guide.

Starting with the motherboard, I found it easy to determine the correct positions for the standoffs. All of the holes were marked, and instructions were stamped right onto the metal tray. With my motherboard I was unable to use my Thermaltake Blue orb II CPU Cooler, due to the position of the CPU socket. The problem I faced had to do with the lack of clearance between the cooler and the rear 120mm exhaust fan. This may not be an issue with other boards, as I mocked up the installation with my DFI-Ultra-D and the same cooler without issues. With the stock cooler, installation was easy. The 7600GT went in easy using the thumbscrews, while the interior seemed to have the space necessary for the largest of video cards.

Before installing the power supply I found myself stumped as to which direction to mount it. The case has the ability to allow it to draw air from the bottom but I chose to flip it and allow it to draw hot air out of the case. Hiper included four thumbscrews for the PSU which were black and matched the exterior's finish.
