Ulster racked up their tenth successive home win to reinforce their position at the summit of the Magners League. Victory at Donnybrook moved Leinster up to third, while there were away defeats for both Connacht and Munster.
Although Border Reivers had started strongly at Ravenhill on Friday night, Ulster swooped for four second half tries to take a 32-8 win and maximum points - former Ireland out-half David Humphreys became the first player to break the 100-point barrier in the league this season.
Elsewhere on Friday, after leading up until the 80th-minute, Edinburgh were unable to keep the pressure on Ulster at the table's business end as the Cardiff Blues scored two injury-time tries to take a 23-13 victory and the points away from Murrayfield.
Friday's third game saw Glasgow secure only their third win of the season - and grab a bonus point at the same time. The Warriors fought off a late rally from Connacht in a 39-34 triumph, which as least gave Michael Bradley's visitors two bonus points for the trip home.
In Saturday's only game, stand-in captain Felipe Contepomi was the star for Leinster, scoring two of their four tries, and kicking a further 15 points in their bonus point 35-13 win over the Newport Gwent Dragons at Donnybrook.
The second-placed Llanelli Scarlets, meanwhile, kept in touch with the pacesetters after defeating Munster 25-12 at Stradey Park on Sunday. A late try from full-back Barry Davies denied Declan Kidney's men a losing bonus point and they remain second-from-bottom.
