Although the Ultra X4 1600 Watt PSU was not able to live up to the 80% efficiency claim, this power supply does offer a ton of potential for the serious gamer who hungers for two, three, even four video cards in today's pixel pushing SLI and Crossfire configurations.
This fully modular system can push serious power (not too efficiently, but a lot of power) for any case that can handle the size of this beast. The design contributes better airflow as well.
All that said, the God's honest truth is that 1600 watts, even 1200 watts, is serious overkill for the vast majority of PC enthusiasts, regardless of how much lust fills our techno-hearts when we read the specs. There are plenty of 800 to 1000 watt standard ATX PSUs, including models made by Ultra that may better serve the typical hard core gamer.
