it does draw 10amps. But still would it/could it trip with 10A on it, and could the PSU be pulling more?

That powersupply will never draw 10A. 10A is only for if you are running @ 100v and with ambients of 60C and an incorrect frequency (dirty power) (causing bad efficiency)

It's actually only capable of drawing 10A.

But I think that there's absolutely nothing wrong with your system. Instead, I think it's 100% due to the wiring in this apartment (or, at least something related to this apartment).

It's probably something with the wiring, good luck getting this fixed. When a safety system keeps tripping like that there is usually an odd cause, seeing your place is new, it's probably just a small kink.

Just take a quick look in your case and see if there is any possible short, I doubt it though.

This never hurts to triple check, normally though your psu will have short circuit protection to prevent this though(system turns on then shuts right off or not at all)

yeah double checked my wiring and all that. Everything seems good. So far as of this posting it has yet to trip on the 20A circuit.

So the apartment guys knew exactly what I was talking about and seems to be a known issue. Should be fixed tomorrow morning.

I personally would not put my computer on a GFI outlet or breaker. For one, they are inherently weak, and two, it would not be good if you were in the middle of something important when the GFI pops. GFIs are meant for safety around water exposure. Just call your landlord and have himreplace the breaker to your room. If you mess with anything in the breaker box and something happens, you will be responsible for the consequences and insurance will not cover a penny.

Edit: OK, somehow I missed your last post. Blame it on the building contractors. All these nice new apartments are built with the cheapest crap they can put into them to save a buck. And you wounder why there are so many apartment fires.

yeah it looks like they upgraded a few of the breakers to 20 amp and better 15amp. I believe my room in now on a 20amp. No issues thus far after about 5 hours.
