It wasn't all too long ago that we covered Ultra Products' Superb X-Connect 2 (X2) power supply. Now, while the unit on the bench today might not feature flowing fans or fully modular cabling, our X-Finity 600W Supply represents an evolution in terms of Ultra's Single Rail workhorse power supplies. For in and around the same price as a 550W X2, you can score yourself a 600W X-Finity, featuring many of the same things, albeit with the inherent fact that you'll have a rat's nest of cabling to deal with if it isn't properly routed. Considering that the X-Finity features many of the same technologies seen in the X2 that's passed through our lab so graciously, it's only fair that we take a look at them both to see the benefits and pitfalls, as well as compare the implementation of many technologies such as Flex force and Dual Rail Technology. That being said, it's time to examine the power supply itself.
