Closer look at the X4 600 and 850

Both of the units are coated with a super sweet-looking gun metal-like black paint. With the popularity all black interior cases we are seeing on the market at the present, a nice looking PSU like this one would make for a nice setup. Along with having beautiful paint jobs, both units are standard size. They each measured just under seven inches in length.

Each unit is cooled by a large 135mm cooling fan. Each fan is covered by a mostly black and silver guard grill and internally governed by load and heat. This means you will not have to worry about your fan is spinning fast enough to cool its internals. It does it all on its own.

Ultra decided to emboss their logos on each side of the unit instead of the usual sticker that spells out all the watts and amperes on each rail. This is nice, if you don't want to see a bunch of scribble when you open your case side panel. Better yet, the sticker is located on the bottom side opposite the fan.

The last side to talk about is where you connect the modular cables. Looking here, you see that all the cables including the main power cables are detachable. Looking at the side without the cables connected, it looks very clean. However, I still don't see the reason for making the main power cables modular as they are needed in every scenario. As you can see in the photo below, the 850 unit has two extra PCIe plugs.

Each cable is sleeved in black using some pretty thin sleeving material. We do like the fact their entire length is covered. This is something we do not see in a lot of power supplies no matter the price and maker. When it comes to having enough cables for all your components, the X4 has plenty. There are a total of six PCIe plugs for even the most demanding SLI and Crossfire setups.
