Hi need advice about ups ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, ive just made a new pc build and i cant turn it on, what happend, well i build it and plug the 2 cables (monitor and case) in to extension cord, when i plug the cable from the extension cord in the wall* my old pc wich was on at time wich is pluged on ups then in 2 the wall*, the ups blow with some strange sound and my old pc stop running, later i just turn it back again, but the extension cord of the new pc was burned, after that ive tried to connect the new pc with the ups and then to plug in 2 the wall* and when i press the 0/1 button on the pc psu, the ups burned and now it doesnt work(my psu is 800w and the ups was 400w), after that ive tryed to turn on the new pc in 2 the wall* directly, the room power switch burned (my house is on old type something like this http:///cv5vk9h) ive repair that, after that ive unplugged the gpu 6+4, the 4+4, and the other power cables i just left the 24pin, got old power stabilizer and interesting thing happend, i plug the new pc in to the stabilizer then plug the stabilizer in the wall* and both psu and stabilizer were on 0 mean turned off and all the lights on my case turned on, i turned the stabilizer on it worked for 1-2mins ok then it started 2 buzz and was afraid it will burn so i turned it off.

wall* = home electricity
my build:
i7 3770k
gigabyte g1 sniper
16gb (4x4) kingston
1tb WD caviar black
asus gtx680 dc2t
cooler master silent pro gold 800w - psu

on psu calculator it says i need around 500w with 90% system load. so my question is what can i do to turn on my new pc and not to burn stuff, the electicity in mine place isnt great , i dont know much about electricity but from 220v i think it runs from 190-220v. so if i need new psu/ups recommend pls, we gonna switch soon the switch table with automatic switch hope that will work better. also want to get new ups so point what va/wa i need to get for the 800w psu.


ive done a paperclip test now and interesting thing, ive hooked another cooler to the psu, and i plug the psu cable in the wall and the psu cooler and the other cooler spin while the psu is in 0 (off) actualy they spin in both positions 0/1 like there is no difference what does that means?

It means the PSU is compromised and you should return it, also (depending on the particular UPS) you need a ~900VA unit for that system... look for a double conversion unit if you're not budget constricted (read this).


ps. welcome to the forum!

Tnx for the reply, i already talked with electricians about the issue they explained why it was doing that and that the psu is faulty, im gonna return it on monday and get a new one. Now about the double coversion ups, im not on budget already spended 2.5k euros on the new pc so another 500-1000euros are no problem but the think is i live in a ****ty country lucky i get this parts, so what i want 2 say ive checked pc stores and the only available double conversion ups are rack type and cost above 3k euros, buying from another country is out of the question im w8ting more then a month speekers to come from germany and ill pay high costums. Ive found this http://www.weliscience.com.tw/GoodsDescr.asp?category_id=63&parent_id=50&prod_id=MT-1000 and i think the 1500va version will be fine? im limited on selection of ups from mine city pc stores.

Mental market, you should have bough them from Greece or Bulgaria.. wink.gif

About the UPS, I just can't recommend anything from Macedonia (because I wouldn't pay such money for that gear)... here, try to pick this up from Greece or Bulgaria, at ~600 euros is about 400 euros cheaper than in Macedonia. wink.gif

Tnx for the suggestion and the answers but as ive sayed not possible from another country, coz this cost 600euros, on top of that ill have 18% country tax and 15% costums tax and it will turn out more then 800euros, and would be lucky if i get it. ill see what i can do some1 to bring that item from another country, with a bus or something smile.gif

As you wish, you could also look for the FSP equivalent (FSP/Fotron Galleon 1000VA), should be cheaper. wink.gif
