    Default Looking for a UPS...


    I'm looking for a UPS, as I suspect some issues with my electricity supply (it may be connected to renovation works in the building, but it may also be connected to the dimming of led lights - which as an electrical engineer told me - are a source of harmonics). The symptom I have is that my Asus mainboard sometimes triggers its surge-detection, but the PSU is fine.

    But now ... Should I get one that gives a pure sinewave? My PSU is an EnerMax Modu+, which has active PFC. And I've learned that those PSUs don't play well with simulated sinewaves... Any experiences with this?

    There are some UPSs that output pure sinewaves (APC Smart, CyberPower, ...) but they are of course more expensive. In addition, I would like to find a PSU that is silent (no fan noise or so) under normal operation (I don't care how much noise it makes when there is a power failure). Any suggestions/experiences?
