Despite the very reflective surface that attracts smudges and finger prints very easily I was very pleased with the Ultra X2 750W Extreme Edition. Even with less rails than the Cooler Master Power Pro it held true to the power ratings specified. The modular design is a must these days in my book because, with all of the heat generated in a top end system, better the airflow means better the performance. Combined with the FlexForce cables, cooling is not going to be a problem with the Ultra X2. With looks and the right amount of power, the Ultra X2 750W Extreme Edition is a clear winner. Whether you are upgrading you current system or building a new one from scratch I would highly recommend the X2, it will not leave you needing more power for those future upgrades.
The big drawback of the X2 and the reason I did not give it a Gold Award is the lack of support for 8-pin PCI-e connections. Even though most graphics cards on the market do not require it, the fact that there are some that do, I feel Ultra should at least have an adapter available for purchase that will allow the 8-pin ability to the X2. Other than that you will never have a problem powering every component you have.
