    Introducing FlexForce Cables

    FlexForce cables are designed to be easily routed and hidden within your case. Not that traditional cables were hard to hide underneath motherboards and behind drives, but with FlexForce you can easily route the cables without worrying about stragglers or the mass-quantity of zip-ties needed to bundle the wire's you're routing. Also, the FlexForce design eliminates the need for sleeving.


    These are FlexForce cables. Flat, sleek and UV reactive.

    Ultra claims that the design allows air to to travel 30% more effectively with FlexForce cables than with conventional cables. Of course, if you hide ALL of the cables, you're improving air flow 100%, right?


    Finally! A native 24-pin connector. The last four pins peel off for 20-pin users.

    The cables also just plain look good. They have a shiny "titanium" finish and are UV reactive.


    I said UV reactive, right?

    The new X-Finity not only gets an improvement in the way the cables look. Ultra also makes improvements in the cable category by giving us more connectors. This year, Ultra provides us with four SATA connectors, two PCI express connectors, a 24-pin ATX connector, even an 8-pin EPS connector for server board users.

    Type of connector:
    X-Finity FlexForce 500W
    X-Finity FlexForce 600W

    So, enough of the cables. What else changed with this year's version of the X-Finity?
