The Ultra Power Partner 325 Watt Power Supply did exactly what it was supposed to do; add more overall power to your computer system without having to replace your older power supply. This, in theory, would be a great idea, however there is one little problem; it does not justify itself economically. With the price of the unit, you could go out and purchase yourself a more powerful power supply than purchasing the Power Partner. Nevertheless, the Power Partner did increase the stability of the system by strengthening the rails. I believe that the Power Partner could be very useful if people did not want to get rid of their current power supply, or for some reason were unable to because of their case. Adding 325 watts of power enables the end user to add accessories such as higher performance video cards, additional hard drives, and fans, without pushing the main power supply to its limit. The two main issues I have with this assembly are that the main 120v power supply cord goes through the PCI bracket with no means of protection (no grommet, no rubber sleeving, etc.), and the unit unfortunately does not contain any SATA connections. Overall, the Ultra Power Partner can be a solution when a new high wattage power supply is not in the budget. In this capacity, it did exactly what it was supposed to do; provide you additional power capacity.
