Ultra Products X-Connect 2 550W PSU
February 22, 2006

Every power supply on the market will provide power to your computer, but whether that power is reliable, clean, and stable is a major consideration. One of the latest Ultra Products brand power supplies is the X-Connect 2, also known as the X2. This power supply is only available in a titanium finish and with a total power rating of 550 Watts. The updates on this power supply from the previous generation include a modular FlexForce cable system and Dual Rail Technology. I will look at these items, among other things, to see how they enhance the power supply, and whether they are worthy updates.

Why X2 is Better than Ever:

If you’re familiar with the X-Connect (1st Generation) you know that it’s the world’s first completely modular design. That means you only have to connect the cables you need. This leaves your system’s airflow unimpeded by clunky, chunky air stifling cables. The end result? Airflow that cools and protects your precious components. This born-to-be-modded power supply goes several steps beyond its award-winning predecessors. The Ultra Products 550-watt titanium finish X-Connect features FlexForce technology, which delivers easy cable routing while remaining hidden within your case. FlexForce’s special design allows air to travel 30-percent more effectively than standard cables. This results in a quantum leap in performance. Plus the 550-Watt X-Connect dresses its cables in a sleek, titanium UV reactive finish.

What is FlexForce?

» Manageable - FlexForce Cables are designed to be easily routed and hidden within your case.
» Increased Airflow - Special design allows air to travel 30% more effective then standard cables, increasing efficiency.
» Design - Cables are dressed in a sleek looking titanium like finish.

What is Dual Rail Technology?

» Better Power Distribution - Dual Rail Technology distributes power to components that require it the most.
» Dedicated CPU Rail - Dedicated 12V Rail for the 2x2 Motherboard Connector.
» More power where you need it.
