The X-Finity was always a capable power supply at a fair price, but it lacked any features that really made it stand out… until now.
About FlexForce cables:
FlexForce cables are designed to be easily routed and hidden within your case. Not that traditional cables were hard to hide underneath motherboards and behind drives, but with FlexForce you can easily route the cables without worrying about stragglers or the mass-quantity of zip-ties needed to bundle the wire’s you’re routing. Also, the FlexForce design eliminates the need for sleeving.
Ultra claims that the design allows air to travel 30% more efficiently with FlexForce cables than with conventional cables. Of course, if you hide ALL of the cables, you’re improving air flow 100%, right?
The cables also just plain look good. They have a shiny “titanium” finish and are UV reactive.
The new X-Finity not only gets an improvement over the last revision in the way the cables look. Ultra also makes improvements in the cable category by giving us more connectors. This time around, Ultra provides us with four SATA connectors, two PCI express connectors, a 24-pin ATX connector, even an 8-pin EPS connector for server board users.
