Does ULTRA make good PSU's? - Page 3  

post #21 of 74
Ultra has outrageous prices? Have you ever heard of PC Power and Cooling? If anything, Ultras are under priced. Just look at the 700W XVS...: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=21202

Modular with a 40A 12V Rail for under $100? I defy you to find anything with those specs, made by a decent comapny, for cheaper.

Well it's because one single rail is a lot more efficient than multiple rails, for example a 600W PSU with 2 12V rails each at 24a will not be as efficient as the PC Power & Cooling's Single 12V rail, not to mention that the quality are exceptionally well and the specs listed are just the average so like if they say 620W PSU it's not necessarily a 620W, that's just what it runs at normally but it peaks out at 680W+. Other PSU manufacturers will usually post the Peak wattage. Obviously they are expensive, but worth every cent of it.

Actually I am pretty sure it's because PCP&C posts their wattage output for higher temperatures, thus at a lower temp (normal temp) it will push out more.

I have a 400watt X-Connect Ultra, and its a damn good PSU for the money. You wont find much better....

If it can power 2 decent car amplifiers perfectly fine without any problems running high volumes for hours, then they make pretty stable and powerful PSUs.

Ultra make impressive PSU in my opinion since I own one. I use to have the 400W V-Series PSU. It served me well until I had that X1950Pro which cause instabilities. That PSU is really good until you push it. I got my for free at Frys.

That's funny because the 1950pro is one of the least power hungry graphics cards available. (at least in the middle/upper range)
