10 posts in this topic

Hi Im planning to buy a new UPS. The existing one might not be enough for me. Sometimes it gives a tick sound and sometimes even the monitor goes off. A friend told me the load is too much because I have the monitor hooked up to it. But I need the monitor so im planning to buy a new one. Please tell me what kind of ups I need to buy for this pc :

 

CPU : Intel Core i3-2100

Ram : 8GB

HDD1 : 64GB Transcend SSD (TS64GSSD340)

HDD2 : 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm (ST1000DM003)

1 Samsung DVD RW

GPU : Asus GT6402GD3 (2 GB Nvidia)

Motherboard : Asus P8B75m

PSU : 450W Cooler Master Thunder

 

Monitor 23inch LED Samsung SyncMaster T23B350

 

(There's a second 19 inch monitor which have been plugged in to a different port. Don't want it to be in the UPS)

 

What capacity should my UPS have? We do have frequent power outages and fluctuations so need protection for that too!

 

If you can, please tell me which one of these will be better : http://online.barclays.lk/bc/items.asp?Tp=&iTpStatus=1&Cc=69&CatName=Ups%20Systems (Those are the available UPS systems in my area)

iirc correctly. its power supply capacity  x 1.6

 

 so 750+ for ps alone at full capacity, not considering monitor.

Buy 1,000Va then you have room for any upgrades.

I have an old APC BackUPS RS 1500. It has never let me down. I'm sure that by now it is a discontinued product though.

Don't know anything on Prolink, but I know Cyberpower and APC are good alternatives as well.

Always go twice as large as what you think you will need, this gives you plenty of time to shut down and the unit won't work as hard and will last longer. I've got two SmartUPS 1000's and two 450's for all my systems and they work great staggered for different components even a lamp, and some non essentials run off just one.
