PRODUCT PICTORAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The casing of the XPro catches your eye. The brushed, satin finish gives the PSU a bold, beefy look.
The bottom of the casing holds the specifications label, which will put it out of sight in most cases. A nice touch that lends an air of “custom” to the look. A good look at the specs reveals a decent amp rating, 20 watts each over four 12v rails. This should be enough to power even a hungry system.
The XPro 800 features two 80mm fans for cooling, one on the front, and one on the rear of the casing.
Connectors come aplenty, and are attached to black sleeved cabling. As you can see, two of the cables are labeled “case fan AST” and “CPU fan monitor” We'll touch on these in a little bit.
Competitors should take note of Ultra's connector spec. Where most modern PSU's jettison molex connectors in favor of more SLI and SATA plugs, Ultra has included no less than 8 molexs.
Along with these, you also get two 4-pin floppy connectors.
SATA and PCI Express are represented by four and two connectors, respectively. Keen eyed readers will note that each PCI Express connector is on its own 12v rail. Nice touch.
