This will be one of the last times I post a review to the Ultra X-Connect PSU . . . I hope.  This is one of the most over-reviewed products out there, but because this one is not the standard green you see in most reviews, I thought I'd drop a link.  You've got to admit, modular PSU's are . . .

Just put this exact blue and orange baby in yesterday and I might say that it is very consistent with the review.  It runs a lot quieter then my last one and it is very stylish.  As for the stiffness of the cables, the only one I really had some difficulty with was the larger Motherboard cable.  But if you just put it in first it is hardly a problem.  I can't wait to see how she runs in the future.

Excellent stuff.  I'm hopefully it remains stable and doesn't "pop" like Fujitsu's Enermax.  The orange and blue one is pretty classy for sure.

I must say this is the sweetest power supply I've seen, the pictures really don't do it justice

Also not having all those unused cables is a huge bonus

In my newest system I put in the orange and blue x-connect. It is sweet! It is by far the best power supply I have ever used. There is one problem however, the oversized connecters really don’t fit well in my case. It takes a good amount of effort just to shut the case. Other than that it is awesome.

I just pulled my X-Connect due to space and connector problems with a water cooling system in my second rig.
