Kingwin 1000W PSU

Ultra X3 1000W PSU

I am leaning toward the Ultra at the moment.
I have the X3 1k and it's been fine. It smelt like they just painted the thing when I took it out of the box though. Had to leave it in the garage overnight to get the smell away. That was weird. Other than that, the modular cable system is great. It really makes the case look clean if you have a window unit or just wanna keep it clean for ar flow. You can see how clean I got it.

I agree to go with the Corsair unless the Ultra is noticeably cheaper.

It's amazing how many people have gotten 1k-1.2k watt psu's for thei rigs which only require about 600-700w's...even in SLI a second or third card does not add double the wattage coming from the cards....oh well though

There was a bit of a fiasco several years ago with Ultra X-Connect PSU's failing left and right. AFAIK they no longer use that OEM, but some people have not forgotten.

Yup, a few years ago they had Youngyear build their early X-Connect X2 550W and it didn't turn out well. Then they switched to Wintech for most of their stuff since then which were better but still not great. Recently they switched to Andyson for their higher end units like the X3 and X-Pro. Andyson made their name with server grade PSUs and make some nice products for the most part.

I saw that earlier and I still can't believe it's at that price. It almost needs to be a typo to make sense, it normally goes for ~$250. How are they making money at that price?

Well, it says it's $237.02 now. It's a hard decision, but I think I'm gonna go with the Ultra because of their flat cable design with the 24 pin cabling and PCI-E power cables.

Can't go wrong with either X3 or 1000HX but my vote to 1000HX.

The Ultra cables are extremely easy to work with and hide behind you motherboard, due to the design (Flat) of the cables. I have very little room between the back of the mobo tray and the side of the case and these cables fit very well.
