Hello saw or tinsnipps?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I waiting for my Ultra LSP750 to get here and i'm wondering if this is a good idea...opinions matter.
Its a gateway and it has a LiteOn PS-6301-08a something 300w.I think the ultra will fit in there,but the fan is the issue.I want the fan pointing up so it sucks in cool air.The liteon is a micro i beleive and its mounted up top.

Will that psu work?...ultra750(still waiting from refurbished com. to tell me what mobo it is)

Good or bad...cut the plastic so it sucks air from above?

Any help would be nice and accepted.

The Ultra LSP-750 is an overrated Andyson POS and probably not much better than the Lite-On already in there. Ultra is a terrible brand on the whole, a few good units but the vast majority of their line-up (and their sales) are cheap crap that can't do more than 60% of what it says on the label.

I'd cancel your order or refuse the package, and start over and ask questions before starting on something like this.

Would you say the ultra x3 series is the same?

Maybe 30A. We don't know for sure. Ultra changes OEMs for these units constantly; the LSP line has been made by Wintech, Yue-Lin, RSY, and Andyson at various times and wattages. Only the Wintech-made 750W has been completely tested, and it blew up at around 300W, so that shows you how much Ultra cares about their consumers.

Ultra's Andyson made units are usually overrated by 20-40%, so the LSP-750 may optimistically be a mediocre 400-450W.

Not the X3 series. They were excellent for the time, though they're showing their age and aren't really worth bothering with.

The X3 line was made while Jonny Gerow (founded and ran JonnyGURU.com, one of the biggest PSU review sites) was working as project manager there. They were great, but the profit margin was lower than Ultra liked, so they kicked Jonny off the project, then made the cost-down (but still decent) X4 line to increase profitability.

Until very recently Ultra hadn't released another good power supply, with the Ultra X-Pro 750W which was surprisingly good. But the LSP series are still their most sold line of PSUs and they are complete and utter garbage.


EDIT: No, it wasn't the X-Pro 750W, that was one of their early units. I can't find the one I'm thinking of, but it was around 750W and did really well in a review. But that was released just a couple months ago.

Start over.

Well I own an X3 and have owned it since early 08. It's done me good. Sorry for the OT
