Also, i would assume the PSU would have a heart attack if the incoming volts was to droop down to 90V~ and then spike up to 130V~ when they shut off the equipment. lol You thought Vdroop was bad thanks to Windows, what about Voltage drop all together? LOL
1,800th POST WOOT!
Well, the input voltage the TX750 V2 is rated for ranges from 90 to 264V, so it should be fine down to 90V. I seriously doubt the construction site nearby is causing their voltage to droop that low. The neighborhood would be up in arms about it. It sounds to me like all he's seeing is a little bit of dimming of his lights and so it concerns him. I'd be concerned too because my system is kind of like my baby, y'know?
However, I learned last year that these PSUs are as tough as nails. We had a brownout which means the voltage dips WAY down but the power is not completely cut, yet my old Bronze-rated HX650 kept powering my system just fine. Even my monitor still looked normal. Still, I panicked and I shut my system down as quickly as possible and I was even able to use Shut Down from the Start Menu and it worked just fine. My system seemed to be completely unaffected by this. If my computer could talk, then it probably would have been like, "Why are you panicking? I don't feel any problem here. Come on! Let's play!" I would have been like, "Omg are you insane? We're having a brownout! This is scary! I can't relax until you're completely powered off and unplugged!"
The Bronze-rated HX650 has an input voltage of 90-264V just like the TX750 V2. They have an automatic switching circuitry.
I don't know how far down the voltage went during the brownout, but it must've still been plenty of voltage because my computer was completely unaffected. My monitor has an automatic switching circuitry of its own for 110V to 220V, yet it looked completely unaffected. It wasn't dimmed nor did it turn off. However, my 100W incandescent light looked something like a 25W bulb (which is why it's called a brownout). So I can only imagine how far that voltage dipped down...
