The Ultra X-Connect is rated at a beefy 500W, which should more than enough for most modern day machines. That's actually not the selling point of this model. Instead of the typical wires, the design is made to incorporate modular wires. Use what you need, remove what you don't.

Headquartered in Fletcher, Ohio, Ultra products include power supplies, memory, case modding supplies, and other high performance computer components.

Here are some features:

  • High-Gloss Mirror Finish
  • Modular Cable Connection System
  • UV Reactive Shielded Cables
  • Dual 80mm Fans
  • Low Acoustic Noise
  • Power Protections:
    Short Circuit, In-rush Current,
    Thermal Overload, Over-Temperature,
    Over-Voltage,Over-Current, Under-Voltage.

Ultra sent over the 500W Titanium version. Included in the box are:

  • 1x 20-Pin Main Power
  • 1x 6-Pin AUX (Xeon) Power
  • 1x 4-Pin 12V (P4)
  • 6x 4-Pin Peripheral
  • 1x Floppy
  • 1x SATA Power Adapter
  • View detailed diagram here.

Right out of the box, my first impression was from the nice finish on the case of the unit. Although the titanium finish was a magnet for fingerprints the reflection it gave off was quite impressive.

The selling point of this X-Connect unit is the ability for it to use only the wires you want. This means every 3-pin, 4-pin, AUX and even ATX connectors are removeable. This helps eliminate clutter far better than any conventional power supply can.

In total there are five molex, one AUX, one P4 12V and the ATX connector. There are rubber covers that go over each unused port.  Unfortunatly, they do not like to stay on.  If you so much as sneeze at one it will fall right off.  Be careful if you do not plan on using all of the connections.

Let's crack her open and see what we have.
