Ultra X-connect?

Recommended Posts

well i have the chance to get a ultra x-connect 500watt power supply for $19.99

 

will this work well with a x2 3800+ on a Dfi expert with a x1800xt?

 

has anyone had problems with this psu?

 

i need another psu for a server im building and this one looks cooler than my antec smartpower 500watt but does it work as well or better?

 

thnx

In my opinion, I would not buy an Ultra-X Connect. All they have been for most people is a problem. I used to own one myself, and my voltages were always off. I finally went for an Antec Truepower 24-pin instead of trying to pull off the 20 on a 24-pin trick.

 

I just went from an Athlon 64 3200+ to an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and the X-connect was unable to power my system sufficiently.

Expert + $20 PSU ...

 

Just think about that for a second ...

and if you still have doubts check out the "Cheap Parts" link below my signature, that should answer your question.

The voltage rails on the Ultra X-Connect are not stable enough for a DFI board. I started having problems with mine the moment I first turned on the computer. I went out and got the one in my sig and haven't had a problem since.

 

On any DFI board, the PSU is one area you do not want to go cheap on. It will only give you headaches.

Well it was available for only $9.95!

 

This POS makes an ok paper weight or an excellent gift for your worst enemy.

 

If you treat it as a low to midgrade 350W PSU (which is what it is) , it's not too bad,

but do NOT use in on a high performance rig!
