    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?

    Analysis and Conclusions

    Analysis of Results:

    What's up with that 12V rail?  Not once did it dip below 12V.  Unfortunately, whenever it was loaded up significantly, it actually shot up above the 5% allowed tolerance!  Very strange.

    I do have to point out that the power supply refused to die.  I had it up to 550W and it just kept putting along without issue.

    The temperatures during test three were a bit high at 42C.  I thought for sure that once I shut down this thing would shoot up to about 70 or 80C.  Much to my surprise, it actually only went up to 52.1 before it started to drop back down.

    Conclusion and score:

    With pretty much just a shiny finish, I'll have to give this power supply a 6 for features and appearance.

    For performance, I give this power supply an 8.  It performed WAY over spec, but the 12V should not have whacked out on me on test two and three.

    It's average overall score is a 7.
