Closer Look:

Ultra provides a pretty robust cable set with this power supply; probably more than the average consumer will use. The accessories and cables come packed in a separate box with the X3 graphic prominently displayed. The included power cord is made from 16 gauge wire instead of the more common 18 gauge stock. The manual details the specifications and install procedures for this power supply.
 

 

 

 

The cables that Ultra includes feature "Force Flex" technology. Huh? What this means is that the cabling is more manageable (aka. more flexible), allowing for better airflow through your case, and the ability to hide the cables better due to their design. The cables are coated in a color that is quoted as "titanium," but is closer to black than anything else. The cables range from 7.5 inches to 29.5 inches in length.

 

 

All of the cables are flat, and the connections are labeled to make hooking them up a simple process. One thing that I had not seen before was a pin missing on the ATX 24-pin power connector. The missing pin is a +5v connection on all of the other power supplies I have used. A quick call to Ultra assured me this was how it was designed and is not an issue. So far, none have been noticed.
