Surge protector question. - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Honestly, with anything electrical, I just call in one of my professional friends.... Seems like Mega Man has more knowledge on the topic, but ultimately if it is in an apartment... I'd just call the landlord to have the outlet inspected and/or replaced if that is indeed the cause of the issue.

Well, I had their maintenance guy came by - checked the outlet, everything seemed ok ( the other one I asked to check did turn out to be crappy, so he did change that one, but it's on a completely different circuit). Anyway, he said that I might be pulling close to max amps, and since the apt complex was build in '68 he advised me to maybe drag a wire to living room or smthg, and pull power for monitors and sound from there, while leaving bedroom only for PC. Which I did today, so hopefully that will work out.

Strangely enough, the fuse box indicates that my bedroom has a 20amp circuit, but that seems wrong

well you only should have a 15 amp
as 20a has a special plug

what size is your psu is it the one in your sig ?if so it is possible . but i sincerely doubt it you would have to have that at almost full load. what else is plugged in to your surge protector?

it is possible that the connection inside the plug is bad.
it is also possible that your pulling too much but as i described i doubt it.

this is a 20a outlet

and this is a 20a plug

if you have a fuse box ( very likely ) they probably just threw a 20a fuse in and it should have a 15 amp

Yeah, I know =) I know how a 20a plug should look like =).
Yeah, it's my sig ( with the monitors) + 2.1 sound and a router ( 2 ports, but same outlet).

Right now I did the following: 1 monitor ( since it's only 24w) + rig in the bedroom outlet, and then 2 monitors, sound and router via 50feet cord into the other room. made sure that they are connected to different fuses, sooo fingers crossed.
