It's WAY better.

Wonder why Ultra is out of everything. Are they going out of business or something?
Call your old co-workers and find out?


They still have their modular cabling patent if times got desperate?

I'm not sure, although they did get a shipment of 2000 of the X3-600W in today. That's what they are going to be sending me. They stated that it would be shipped out later today or tomorrow.

The XVS series is not a good Ultra one and probably will fail load testing at around 500-600w. I don't even believe they have Active PFC either. While PFC isn't really important for a home user, it does tells us about the quality/age of a unit.

Have you actually used one? Like I said, it performs excellently on my rig.

PS: The article about 99% of PSU Reviews being wrong doesn't make the Ultra 700W XVS "not good" by default somehow.

I did some research and it turns out the 700w XVS is ok. However, there's no Active PFC so it's an older PSU design. The 500w and lower models suck. I have a 400w XVS and it can't do over 250w without exhibit some poor regulation. I am not sure if Wintech builds them both. Regardless, the Andyson built PSUs are better.

Also, a single user's rig is never a good test for excellence (as the article stated).

It's performed very well, so it's good enough for me.

Just ok. I'd still rather have the X3 600W.

The XVS 700W is based on a 600W @ 25°C platform on a 500W Wintech PCB with poor efficiency, group regulation and no PFC.

That said, I'd still take it over a Deer, most Raidmax, a Powmax, etc.

Well, I've since been researching the X3 600W that I will be recieving in a few days and it seems to be a VERY solidly built PSU. I've also seen comparisons between the X3 600W and Corsair 620HW and they are almost identical in comparison. This actually makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside cause I am an absolutely HUGE fan of the Corsair modular PSU's. I've used many Corsair PSU's in clients builds and, until now, would recommend only the 620HX and 520HX models. Once I get my X3, I may just have a new favorite

Ok, someone over at Ultra Products LIED to me! I called them to check on the order today and was told that the X3 600W would not be available until April 15th. Needless to say, this PISSED me off, so I immediately asked to speak to his supervisor. After explaining everything to the supervisor, he stated that he would call me back when they decided which PSU was comparible. So, 15 minutes later they called me back, and said they would ship me an X-Pro 750W. I was not happy with this because I knew the specs on this PSU and they were not what I wanted. I wanted a fully modular PSU that was comparible to my X2 550W! He said that he would call me back in a few minutes. 15 minutes later, he called me and said that they were shipping me this X3 1000W fully modular PSU! Needless to say I was pretty well floored!!

So, any and all comments, questions, congrats, etc. etc. are greatly appreciated!
