Ultra Products Unleashes X4 Modular Power Supplies

Ultra Products has just announced a new line of fully modular power supplies, dubbed the X4. We have actually had one of the 1050W units in house for a couple of weeks now and think it is a solid product. Our Ultra X4 has been used to power Core 2, Lynnfield, and Bloomfield test-beds for recent articles, and we really took it to task on an octal-core Intel-powered rig complete with dual Radeon HD 4870 X2s and the unit never faltered once, despite some hefty workloads. Full details of today's announcement are below, along with some specs, availability info, and pricing...

Ultra Products Unleashes X4 Modular Power Supplies

Energy efficient, fully modular, enthusiast power supplies with industry-leading lifetime warranty

MIAMI, FL – October 19, 2009 – Ultra Products, the global leaders in PC component and peripheral design that pioneered the invention of the modular power supply, is proud to announce its latest lineup of PSUs, the X4. With the below features, Ultra’s innovative series aims to satisfy even the most power hungry PC enthusiast...

  • Modular Design – Patented technology helps reduce clutter by using only the cables needed. This not only increases airflow within the case, but it gives the inside of the computer a clean and professional look that is easier to manage and service.
     
  • 80 Plus Certified – The X4 line received the coveted 80 Plus Bronze certification meeting a stringent energy efficiency performance specification. This optimization ensures that that less energy is wasted by the computer and heat and noise generated by the PSU are minimized.
     
  • Power Protection – Short circuit protection, in-rush current protection, and thermal overload cutoff protection –all work in conjunction to protect systems from under voltage, surges and brown outs.
     
  • Simple Installation – All X4 PSUs include thumb screws, zip ties and Velcro straps to make the build process as streamlined as possible.
     
  • Lifetime Warranty – Register online or by sending in the included warranty card and receive a lifetime warranty.
     
  • Reduced Acoustics – Featuring a large 135mm dual bearing cooling fan, Ultra’s X4 power supplies offer reduced acoustics, increased airflow and longer life. Further, Ultra includes a silicone chassis bracket which significantly reduces vibration noises typically caused between the chassis and the fan.

 

“Ultra’s new X4 family of power supplies represents the pinnacle of Ultra’s engineering prowess when it comes to supplying high-end systems with power” said Nestor Villalobos, Product Manager for Ultra Products. “With features such as fully modular cables, short circuit protection, 80+ certification and a lifetime warranty, the X4 is going to be benchmark by which all other power supplies will be measured.”

I had an Ultra PSU before and I loved it. It was modular and had a very shiny and good looking case.

I would definitely buy an other.

I put an Ultra modular PS in a system I built for a family member a year ot two back. I was *very* impressed with the quality.

I have never used one of them, but I'll remember the name and try one or two of them out now. I like the lifetime warranty and that they give you Velcro straps and Zip Ties with it.

I have an Ultra X3 1200W power supply. The original one died unexpectedly after about 6 months. I expected a lot of hassle getting them to honor their warranty. I called them once, and all they wanted was for me to e-mail them my purchase receipt. Within 10 minutes of doing that, I had an RMA number and 10 minutes later got an e-mail with a shipping tracking number for the replacement PS. The new one has been working for about 8 months now with no problems. They definitely stand behind their warrantees. I would highly recommend any Ultra product.

That price is steep!  I mean, it looks nice and all and modular is getting better, but $150 for a 750w PSU?  Too steep for me.
