Ultra Products XVS Modular 600W ATX Power Supply
October 27, 2006

Internal Examination:

Removing four screws is all it takes to open the unit (which will void any warranty), and you can see the internal components of the power supply. Nothing here really surprises me, it is a familiar layout of components. The transformer is located between two decent sized heat sinks.

Taking a look at the 120mm fan, we see it is a standard Ultra Products branded case fan. I was impressed when I turned on the power supply, as it was so quiet that I had to verify the fan was actually spinning. I wasn't able to hear it at all, even with all the other fans in my system disabled. The fan does not have LEDs, which I would like to have seen. While an LED fan wouldn't increase/decrease the performance, it would give it a little extra "bling".

In the next picture you can see one side of the power supply internals, which shows two large capacitors and a plastic shield to protect them from the side of the power supply.

In the next picture you can see the opposite side of the power supply internales, which shows the hard wired cables. Looking closely where the cables come into the chassis, you can see the previously mentioned plastic ring that keeps the cables from rubbing against the metal edge.

Installed:

Once you get it installed, you can easily add just the cables you need. For my installation, I used every cable that was supplied. As you can see here, the Ultra Products ForceFlex cables can make the case look like a rats nest of cables, however they are easily routed to meet your particular needs.
