    Bottom Line: We took a detailed look at the Ultra X-Connect 500W Titanium PSU, it's got modular cables, lights, windows and a shiny finish. But how did it compare and perform to the other PSU's we reviewed?

    What's my opinion about what the outcome will be?

    If we believe the label completely, we'd have to assume that this power supply will be within spec on all three tests.  30A on the 5V and 34A on the 12V is nothing to cough at.  But can it really do it?

    Let's see how this modular monster pulls it off in the load tests.

    The results:

    As with the last test, red means out of spec.....

    Ultra X-Connect 500W Zero Load Test One (373W) Test Two (304W) Test Three (341W) Full Load (536W)
    12V 12.02 12.16 12.69 11.82 12.00
    5V 5.24 5.04 4.94 5.05 4.93
    3.3V 3.44 3.34 3.34 3.32 3.29
    Efficiency 33% 76% 75% 73% 71%
    Power Factor .58 .65 .63 .68 .69

    Temperature under load = 28C. Temperature after power off =72.2C.

    This is the blue, non-UV version of the X-Connect during the full load test (536W).  Notice that the rails are closer to spec here than during any other test.
