Introduction to the Ultra X4
Ultra is known for being the originators of the modular cable concept for power supplies. The whole idea skyrocketed to popularity as every PSU manufacturer produced their own version. It was great for us all as it allowed us to maintain a neat and tidy interior of our PC. Not only was this nicer to look at, but it also allowed for better airflow. The thinner rounded cables let air breeze right by, not blocking it from cooling components that were in much need of cool air.
It has been awhile since Ultra released a new power supply, but that changed today. The new X4 is Ultra's newest and best looking power supply. The X4 is aimed at the enthusiast looking to build a gamer rig around and the individual that needs a good reliable power supply for max overclocking and long bench sessions. If these groups of people are fond of it, then the rest of the world usually catches on. We received two units from Ultra, a 600 model and a 850 unit. Lets get the units on the test bench and see what they are all about.
Ultra's take on the X4
