    Bottom Line: The Ultra X-Finity 500W has no modular cables, UV windows or UV lights, but it does have a high rated 12V rail. SLCentral put it through its paces, how did it cope when loaded up significantly?

    Specifications

    Let's take a look at the label:

    ULTRA 500W X-FINITY
    +3.3V
    +5V
    +12V
    -12V
    -5V
    +5VSB
    Max Output Current
    20A
    32A
    28A
    0.6A
    0.6A
    2A
    Max Combined Wattage
    480W
    20W

    You'll note that the 3.3V is lower, the 5V slightly higher and the 12V slightly lower on the X-Finity than it is on the X-Connect. It's still plenty of power to go around in a world of 20A 12V rails! Note the -5 is a little higher than the X-Connect, but it's still lower than a lot of PSU's.

    And now a look at what cables we get with the X-Finity:

    ULTRA 500W X-FINITY POWER CONNECTORS QUANTITY OF CONNECTORS
    ATX connector 20 pin
    2 x 2 12V connectors 1
    2 x 3 PCIe 0
    6-pin Xeon/AUX connector 1
    5.25" Drive connectors 8
    3.5" Drive connectors 2
    SATA Drive power connectors 2
    Fan only connectors (thermostatically controlled 12V only) 0

    Although the X-Finity comes with a 20 to 24-pin adapter to make it EPS12V ready and comes SATA ready right out of the box, there's no accommodation for PCIe video cards. An adapter is required.
