Bought me a Intel Tiger direct kit to build. For $200 i got a cheap black case, XFX 610i-7020 motherboard, Intel dualcore 2.20, 2 gigs of PC5300 ram, and a 400 watt PS. So i bought a pioneer DVD-RW, and a Zerotherm cpu cooler from NewEgg. I also bought a Q6600 Quad Core CPu for a customer but then he did not want it so i used it here. I didn't like the case and had a old E-machines case so i used it. I bought a Vista Premium upgrade DVD from Ebay, and used a OEM XP CD for the previous OS as i fried the computer it was used for trying to overclock it.

Heres the pic's.

It's almost too quiet as i cannot hear it running at all and the only thing that is loud now it the hard drive activity noise. Ive done a 24 hour burn-in with no problems. I did not like a ridge on the sides holding the heatsink cpu plate that was on the zerotherm heatsink so i used my moto tool to grind it down so the contact area was dead flat. I then polished the contact area to a semi shine where i could see my face on it( albit a bit fuzzy). The ultra PS shows good voltages. CPU temps are steady at 36°. Looks like i have a nice one here. I can't wait to see people's face's when i put it up for sale.

Nice build for a nice price but personally I wouldn't trust the Ultra PSU. Here is a DC output chart for an increasing load on one Ultra PSU model: http://www.anandtech...s...i=3146&p=12.

Is long as your not cutting it close on wattage it shouldn't be an issue but It's crap PSU nonetheless.
