Most newer ones will work most of the time, the problem is people have a lot of old cheap ones from 10 years ago.

What about a UPS with voltage regulation?

Nothing is 100% but the battery backups that monitor for clipped voltage (most people call this dirty power) seem to be the best.

Is a clipped voltage a brown-out? Or is that just what we call it here?

Why do some people call this dirty power? I wouldn't buy a UPS to run when power is out, just for the purpose of voltage regulation.

It can happen when a brown out happens. Most times when voltage clips is when the power source is being pushed too hard. It's just like when you turn your radio up too high and it starts to distort.

Clipped voltage

Good Voltage

Dirty power can be many things. All it really means is you don't have a nice clean stable power, that can be from clipping, noise, low/high or not a constant voltage, ect, ect. Most people will not have a problem with bad voltage, and most things made today have power supplies that can handle small stuff like when you turn on a microwave or a vacuum and the lights flicker for a second.

Interesting, thanks.

Yeah we got a switch in the Kitchen that puts noise on the line whenever it's turned off. We rarely run it cause it's over the sink. Praise be to whatever diety that it's not the switch above the stove. tongue.gif

Here is my rig in it's current form. The watercooling is basically done. Might get a few more fittings later. Next step is cable management tongue.gif

I love that my current loop is only using about 2 feet of tubing

Not sure if it's me being blind, but have you got a radiator in your loop? I can't see one tongue.gif
