It's a micro case, thats the only reason why I didn't pull the trigger. Case is usually like $35, and the PSU is around $50 itself.

It's just ok. Ultra isn't a tier one ps; Most 700w units have a higher 12v amp rating.

You're not very likely to get a better PSU for ~$15. But I still think you would be better off spending more to get a better PSU than that Ultra '700W' unit.

I concur with the other posters as this is what I found on Ultra:

Ultra
MODEL WATTS PROBLEMS AND ISSUES REVIEWS
X4 850 Did not achieve advertised efficiency rating. Marginal DC output quality. Poor Soldering Hard OCP
X4 1050 Did not achieve advertised efficiency rating. Poor Soldering Hard OCP
X4 1,200 Did not achieve advertised efficiency. Poor voltage regulation on the 3.3V and 5V rails. Sloppy build quality. No overtemp shutdown until almost too late. jonnyGURU, Hardware Heaven

effeciency aside - Poor soldering, poor volt reg, sloppy build, etc.,etc., - I wouldn't touch this brand of PSU.

its garbage m8... the case has very poor air flow and the psu is a fire hazard.
and is likely to only manage about 450w as 700 is likely to be its peak rather than constant load...

look about you may find a coolermaster storm or similar with a half decent cooller master psu inside for 70-90 or so bux.
i saw 1 the other day for uk retail with GX(or similar)700w psu for 90 quid... you should be able to pick up the same deal in the u.s.a for 90 bux.
