post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys, I Live In India And Here There Are Some Problems With Electricity, It Goes Of After Every 5-8 Hours...........So For Example If I Am Sitting On My Comp And Suddenly Electricity Goes Of And Before My Inverter Or UPS Takes The Load My System Cuts Off And Then Restarts Within A Second...........So Can That Run Me In To Some Trouble............I Know That GX 550w Have Full Protection But Still.............Can It Be Dangerous?

It can be very dangerous, but not for the PSU. HDDs are the ones that like the least to be plugged/unplugged, but other components like the motherboard, PSU, etc can be damaged if this is happening enough times. Your problem is that the UPS doesn't switch fast enough. What brand/model do you have?
