Ultra X-Pro & X-Finity 800watt Power SuppliesSagittaria - March 15, 2007
Category: Power Supplies
Price: $200 USD
Introduction:Today's technology requires more power than ever, so this is where Ultra's X-Finity and X-Pro come in, with a monstrous 800 watts. Both are extremely heavy, with dual 80MM fans and AST technology, which continues to power your fans at a low speed even after turning off your computer - a nice feature! Both the X-Finity and X-Pro are just about identical, with the X-Finity being black and having unique Flex-Force cabling and the X-Pro, silver, with sleeved cables. Even better, they're both brushed aluminium!
You've probably heard of Ultra at one time or another. They are a US-based company who focus primarily on power supplies, which include some famous ones like the X-Connect - the first modular PSU! Some of their earlier products weren't up to scratch, but recently Ultra has taken a turn for the better! I have no doubt in my mind that these power supplies will not disappoint.
Closer Look (X-Pro):
First up is the X-Pro, which is the silver version with black sleeved cables.
It comes in a somewhat large box and the first thing I noticed is the huge life time warranty sticker on the opening. I doubt you'll ever have to worry about the unit failing!
Opening the box, I find the actual power supply, a rather thick power cable and a short manual. A tiny thing I noticed is that they included an extra mounting screw, a nice touch! On to the unit itself.
The entire case is extremely thick brushed aluminum. This has got to be the toughest power supply I've ever layed eyes on! There are two 80mm fans on the front and rear sides of the unit, which intake from inside the case and expel outside. Please note the large warranty sticker on the side of the case. I highly suggest NOT to take apart the power supply - leave that to us so you will not waste your warranty! Not much I can say here, the pictures should do it justice.
