Todays high-end computers can no longer run on 400W PSU’s, it’s a fact. There are plenty of high-end PSU’s out there, but many aren’t that appealing to the eye. If you are looking for a PSU with looks and power, check out our review of the 600W X-Finity.
The PSU also has a great Titanium glossy finish, and is completely reflective. Unlike our recent X-Connect review, this time I made sure that I didn’t get my grubby thumbprints all over the place.
As we know, the X-Finity has a combined wattage of 600W. We can see how this wattage is determined by checking out the chart that’s available from the Ultra website.
The power supply also has a range of various features for protection means. Of course there is over voltage protection, and on this particular PSU it is as follows: +5v: 6.6v, +12v: 15.6V and the +3.3v: 4.5v. Other protections that the PSU has that I won’t get into are Short Circuit, In-rush Current, Thermal Overload, Over-Temperature, Over-Current and Under-Voltage.
Opening up the PSU reveals a lot. There’s a lot of connections and screws going on inside, and what you see, is the most I was able to take it apart. Two parts are attached to create the full unit, and they are unable to be taken apart.
