Power Cut while Gaming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a gaming PC and we all know that when the pc is idle, it uses less power when compared to when gaming

 

I have a backup UPS to avoid any sudden system shutdowns but it only works when I'm not playing any game or while just watching a movie

 

In fact, while the power cuts happen while gaming the UPS has to deliver a higher power to the PC inorder to compensate the graphics card's high power usage but my UPS can't and it just does a long beep and cuts all the power to the computer

 

My pc config is

MSI Z370A Pro

Intel i7 8700K

Corsair H45 Cooler

Corsair 8GB RAM

Corsair TXM750 PSU

Seagate 1TB

GTX 1070Ti

Phantom 530 Case(white)

Numeric brand UPS

 

If you are using a badass UPS for gaming that would withstand any powercuts while gaming please tell me because I live in India and there are frequent powercuts here

I have a Cyberpoer CP1300EPFCLCDa. I can run my system (see profile) at full power for 10-15 minutes with both monitors and 300W external speakers and adsl modem.


If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Don't forget to tag or quote in your reply if you want me to know you've answered or have another question.

What should be the max power of the UPS that i should buy?

What's the current draw of your UPS?

you should get a power consumption monitor plug , so you know how much your system will use during gaming.

 

Look in Amazon lots of them.

so you want something that can handle small power outages, or hours? 

 

the power consumption plug might be the right way to go but a 500watt continous power UPS and with 15 minutes of full load batteries should be enough for small power outages.

 

eaton has a configure tool
