no, i don't know what you're saying because the ultra x-connect is crap

it's basically a generic power supply that glows and looks cool for 12 year olds that love things that glow

its AMPs for the 12V rail are probably the max it reaches, so if it averages 18A all the time and jump to 34A for 10 seconds, then it rates it as 34A, as opposed to better brands that actually rate their PSU accurately

Yeah it's the one that did run his computer before we burned it up lol. I just ended up giving him my Gigabyte mobo and P4 2.4A processor though.

what about that?? it's on sale today at 36.99+.99 shipping so I figured if it would do the job well than I'd snag it up.

I have the Ultra X-Connect. it actully is quite stable on the 12 V rail, generally staying at around 30A. It remained steady when I OCed my CPU.

At the same time, there are far better choices.

Thats a nice PSU, Austin, but i would go with the 480watt model

You want a solid PSU? Well fork over $200.00 and get yourself the best you can buy. PC Power and Cooling makes the "BEST" there is.

Sure it costs a pretty penny. But, you want a solid PSU. Smart!

If anyone tells you that PCP&C isn't the best, their an idiot.

Check it out!

I'm not about to spend as much on my power supply as I did on my processor. I have n oneed for the best on the market, I think I'll order the Thermaltake 480w.

LOL - Must be a top of the line processor... You should just get a large copper coiled wheel and a couple of gerbils. You'll be all set!

sale on newegg for a 3.0E p4. I don't see a point in a 200 dollar power supply when this pc is mostly going to be used for daily usage with light gaming.
