In the case of power supplies, not only will high wattage and amps be the deciding factor, the power supply must look good in an enthusiast’s windowed case. Enter Ultra Products’ next generation power supply, the X-Connect. This innovative 500W PSU not only has the muscle to keep your system powered, it has a beautiful look to it that would appeal to all modders and enthusiasts alike. So let’s take a look together at this beautiful and powerful unit.

Actually its the best i have seen so far also! Really very nice piece...but not for me...I mean...why would average user need such MONSTER PS!?? And I also know exactly how it is with noise...especially at nights...those fans may drive You crazy sometimes...I have 7 of them in the box...and believe me...they sure are LOUDDDDDDD ...maybe its really time to go into water cooling ASAP!

The newest Mitsubishi split air-conditioning systems, at 9,000BTU and low speed run at below 27DB noise level at 1m.

Certainly they consume over 1KVA and are much, much quiter than some ad hoc in-house constructions which seem hi-tech to pc enthusiasts with a limited understuding of today's industry manufacturing processes...

Stop arguing You two I read somewhere few days ago (but just cant remember where to provide more details) that some scientists have invented some new materials which are almost immune to temperature changes...and that they might be used into computer - electronics within few years if not even sooner...so forget about all fans and water cooling systems...soon we will run computers as we did some 5-7 years ago....only CPU...without those big aluminium stuff above...and without fans everywhere...

The only thing I wonder about...is whether this "new material" is also that good in other aspects...because You would need to produce complete CPU out of it (or other complete components) and not just outer case...otherways it would be even worse...because the heat from other components (from inside the CPU in that case) wont spread out effectively (like at aluminium or copper), but instead it would be "trapped" inside...causing other components to acchieve much higher temperatures as they do now...

Well lets hope for the best...

10-15 years ago a us president declared superconductivity the technology of the decade.
I do not know how much us has achieved on this since yet, though...
