Default Ultra X2 Extreme Edition 750W Power Supply Review

Whenever a company names a product an “extreme edition”, you have to wonder if they’re exaggerating or if they really have done something revolutionary. Ultra, makers of a wide variety of power products, sent us one such labeled power supply, the Ultra X2 Extreme Edition 750W PSU. Will this extreme supply live up to its billing? That is what we’re here to find out in this review.

here's why Madshrimps doesn't do PSU testing anymore, without seriously changing our test setup... this PSU tested by RBMods, where they measure voltlines and use a modest PC to test load, they conclude

While I didn’t notice anything very “extreme” about it, the Ultra X2 Extreme Edition 750W PSU is a serious power supply that delivers rock-solid power output and a plethora of features. As seen by the long list of pros for this supply, this product pretty much offers everything you could want in a power supply.

however when you properly load test the PSU, the outcome is completely different:

The Load Testing results for the X2 750w Extreme Edition can best be summed up by saying that we had 460w units in our $50 Roundup that did as well as the Ultra X2 750w Extreme Edition did before dying. That really sums up the entirety of our experience with two of these units. As for the actual numbers, the depressing fact of the matter is that at only 50% of its capacity the voltage regulation was terrible.
