Default Ultra X-Connect PSU?

Was looking at Ultra X-Connect PSUs

http://www.xoxide.com/ultra.html

Are these good PSUs? Going to be used for an AMD build. I haven't heard much about Ultra X, anyone else use these or have have an opinion on them?

Errr I don't think that PSU will work cause the DFI board I want uses a 24 pin and that has a 20 pin and I don't want an adapter.

I have one and like it alot. It looks cool, provides good power, and is modular.

1.) you need a 24pin power supply; i can suggest you one if you tell me what video card you are using and if you plan to upgrade on your computer or not
2.) ultra's aren't reliable at all

i've seen one in action and they look really, really nice; they're good while they work, but many people have had ultra's crap out on them

Most likely going to be using a eVGA 6800 GT, looking for a PSU around 100 bucks and has good cable managment, kinda like the Ultra.

You dont NEED a 24 pin power supply, an adapter works as long as it's decent quality.

From my research on ultra's, their a cheap generic 20$ power supply with some fancy cables

true, a lot of people over at dfi street still use 20pin psu's

that's their peak, they might just reach 34A for few seconds and drop back down to 16A
