I actually hadnt thought about that...redface.gif It does have my two monitors and I think that's it. Ill swap those over to my beefy power strip that has my speakers etc plugged into it. Question is how much of a difference will that make hehe.

Hopefully this thread is active enough to get a reply and not need to start a fresh one.

I have a still pretty new UPS that lately seems to turn on and off or engage for just a second or two maybe once or twice a day that I know of. Typically I am watching some show on Netflix or something and I can hear it kick on and off quickly, plus my PC will then play the sound as if I disconnected a USB device.

I figure its some form of under or overvoltage being corrected, but the software that came with the UPS doesnt seem to record any events for either category. My last event shows up from like 2 weeks back. I can see power outage, undervolt, and overvolt events iirc and they only show like one of each for the past few months total.

What would be causing the UPS to kick on for a moment if it isnt voltage regulation or is it just not a full scale correction to log the event, but is still likely some voltage regulation?
Perhaps the log only records events over say 5 seconds or needing more battery power idk, but it seems odd that its being used more then i recall in the past.

I ran a self test and it passed fine.

Also to be sure, this power issue, if we can call it that, would be from the wall to the UPS and not my PSU correct? I figure the UPS is only monitoring voltage regulation from the wall and doesn't know what the PSU itself is doing.

I'm hoping it's OK to ask here. I just want to make sure these are OK and not a super terrible vendor or something.

This unit: Cyberpower CP1500PFCLCD (1500VA 900W)
It should be enough to power my 3770K and 980 Ti for five or so minutes, correct? I may add a second Ti down the road, but it is unlikely.

Can I replace the battery with something larger later, say a car battery. Ignoring the housing as I can always make a new one.

Or would I be better off getting APC BX1500G (1500 VA, 865 Watts)?

I'm not sure if there is any major feature difference I should be concerned with except for the different manufacturers.

My 1000PFCLED is able to run my rig (maxed out around 330W) for about 4 minutes at full load. It's more than enough time to save what I was doing and lower my power draw. At idle, it's well over an hour's time.

That CyberPower series is a great series.

Thanks, found it a little cheaper at MemEx, so grabbed it.

What are your opinions on this UPS, I've found one available for £185. Does it look decent?
I've been looking at APC but those prices terrify me.

Its not that bad, i have a APC BX1400U-GR and it worth about £100 in my country. Unfortunately it uses simulated sin waves but my PSU(XFX) dont mind that at all...

@tompsonn
Nice guide, i wish i had found it earlier...

Hey guys,

Will this UPS fit the bill? I have a 5960X OC'd to 4.7GHz, Titan X to 1500MHz, lots of watercooling peripherals and fans on an EVGA 850 P2.

Hey all,

I'm looking to buy my first UPS and I have a quick question. When determining the VA/Wattage needed, you only need to include the wattage for the devices that you want to be able to run off the battery for a given amount of time, correct? For example, here are all the devices that I plan on plugging in to the UPS:

Home Theater A/V Reciever (7 channel with 110W/channel)
2 Subwoofer amps (350W/amp)
LED TV
Blue-ray player
Router
Modem
External HD
Presonus Firepod (external sound card)
Possibly an Ampeg Bass amp
Laptop charger
2 desktop computers (the one in my sig and another older computer)

I want to get good, clean, conditioned power to all of these devices (power surge/sag protection) but the only devices I care about being on the battery in the event of power loss are the 2 desktop computers. I only want them to be on long enough to safely shut down. So I'm thinking that when deciding on the VA/Wattage I need in the UPS I should only consider the wattage for the 2 desktop computers? Is this correct?
