Introduction

As soon as I opened the box and looked at the specs of the Ultra X3 1000W ATX power supply the famous song "I've Got The Power" popped in my head :)
Single +12V rail with whooping 70A! I bet it's something you wished for!

Let me skip the introduction about how much power contemporary PC components consume and its importance. First of all, I want to mention a few things that I already like about this power supply: 70A on single +12V rail, 100% modular design, Active PFC, high efficiency, quiet operation, and it's backed up by the Ultra's Lifetime Warranty! I will provide a full list of all features and specifications on the next page.


This is what Ultra has to say about it: "Ultra pulls out all of the stops for their latest power supply. By combining our "EE" (Energy Efficient) platform, which converts as much as 85% of AC power into DC power during typical loads, with a quiet 135MM ball bearing fan, our patented modular interface and our Limited Lifetime Warranty, Ultra clearly dominates the market with the new X3 power supply!"

The X3 is super efficient, using less electricity than other power supplies when providing power to your computer and it generates less heat. Cooling is substantial yet silent by utilizing a thermostatically controlled 135MM ball bearing fan and a honeycomb cut exhaust grill. The X3 also has full range active PFC, which improves apparent power used by the computer. The modular interface allows you to only plug in the cables you actually require for your particular PC. The X3 is ready for even the most high end gaming rigs by providing up to four 6-pin PCI-e connectors, and the 800W and 1000W models provide the newest 8-pin PCI-e connector for the latest 300W graphics cards.
