its rare that a psu will add ripple to a stable input but quite common for them to have problems when your supply is constantly changing (the UPS once fully charged supply's a fixed output) in the UK for instance the power grid swings between 210 and 250v on a fairly regular basis (some areas might not have such a wide swing) and thats likely to get worse rather than better in the years ahead..
if I could get one that covered the whole house I would since replacing white goods when they burn out every few years is annoying and expensive (especially now most of them only have a 2 year guarantee) but there way to expensive a proposition for a guy on disability... so I just have a UPS that keeps the essentials covered (pc, router, phone, charger, nas box) and its got a 10 year guarantee... it also lets me save money when buying the psu
UPS, you mean a power conditioner? I am using Furman Power Conditioner SS6B
EDIT: Something like this?
If not, please explain
Can you point me to one? If you mean something else, let me know, I have been looking.

You dont need to buy another 1000 watt unit by the way its a waste of your money if your system is not even drawing half that
The Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium is very quiet even during high loads
Cybenetics has a database with noise of all the units they have tested
Edit: which reviews did you read by the way unless it was from a professional review site done by a professional reviewer its not a review its just a useless opinion by someone that is not a professional reviewer and almost every review on Amazon Newegg and other sites are such useless information
I can't remember it was so long ago, seemed like legit reviews, but johny guru didn't even review this PSU, so hard to tell who was right, I can only say this after people stated it, and my ac ripple issues, at least in my house.
Problem with Seasonics is the sound the motor on the fan makes, is not good.
Or on Focus plus (same thing)
I actually cancelled my purchase couple of hours ago, because of this, before I even read your response

Any switching type PSU will produce a lot of high-frequency ripple.
The amount depends on output filters.
Cheap PSU will come only with basic capacitor filter, better ones have it followed by extra LC stage.
Decent LC filter will cut down the high-frequency stuff a lot.
Series inductor followed by a parallel capacitor.
EVGA 1000w PQ does seem to have extra space inside for bigger output inductors.
Or you may try external filters by soldering them closely to the input of components.
No soldering for me, I will void warranty, and also I have zero skills soldering. A no-no for personal work
Can you point me to a video maybe where I can watch the process?
