That is probably worth a new ID designation by itself. Sounds like a new design.

Good to see it.

Still waiting for a link to photo(s).

The fan may have been changed as well, but I am not sure about that one. I need to check with our PM.
We can wait to hear what he tells you.

Probably something like your random molex to S-ATA adaptor.
Possibly a S-ATA to S-ATA adaptor without 3.3V connected though.

Any reason why the Prime Ultra's are cheaper than the Primes?
For example, on newegg.com, the:
Prime Ultra 850w Titanium is $209.90
Prime 850w Titanium is $272.83
I figured the Ultra's would cost more?

Because they use the word "Ultra"?

Prime is made in Taiwan. Prime Ultra is made in China.

Prime has caps in the cable. Prime Ultra does not.

Prime Ultra's fan is better though. Still Hong Hua with FDB, but lower RPM with higher pressure and same CFM.

I need to do my homework on power supplies but if you had a choice between the 850w Prime or Prime Ultra, which one would you choice (and why if you don't mind answering).

Thanks agian,

Or stated another way, I know price doesn't always determine the quality of a product but if the Prime is more expensive than the Prime Ultra do to build quality, components, etc. would that one be the better choice?

Thanks again,

Between the two, I would pick Prime Ultra.
