  1. Recently my dorm room circuit breaker tripped 3 times in less than 2 month. But I noticed the last video LMG made about UPS is 5 years ago in 2016... and it only explain some vocabularies such as what is VA rating, but not how to actually pick one. I think it is time to make a refresh video. About how to choose a UPS. Maybe LMG's friends at EATON can give some insight. Especially regarding potential incompatibility issue between Simulated Sine Wave UPS and Active PFC power supplies (which most power supplies today are). The worst part is, Most consumer grade UPS ar
  2. That would be a good idea, I was looking for a section in the forum specifically for video suggestions. I will post one in that thread instead.
  3. So I have a Silverstone power supply and looking to buy a UPS because my dorm have poor circuit setup 5 room sharing a 10A 220V circuit... So in case of the circuit tripped I want my PC can survive a minute or two for me to shut down and reset the breaker... (5 rooms with just 2000W...a hair dryer and a vacuum can exceed that... it already popped twice in last 2 month) The power supply model is Silverstone ET650-G (Tier B in LTT PSU Tier list) rated 650 W, my set up calculated load is 399W, recommended UPS rating is 800 VA. Since I am only expecting to continue using the UPS f
  4. Recently my dorm room circuit breaker tripped 3 times in less than 2 month. But I noticed the last video LTT made about UPS is 5 years ago in 2016... I think it is time to make a refresh video. Especially regarding incompatibility issue between Simulated Sine Wave UPS and Active PFC power supplies (which most power supplies today are). The worst part is, Most consumer grade UPS are Simulated Sine Wave UPS... which makes them "not recommended" for most power supplies today... Maybe LTT forum should also come up with a UPS/PSU compatibility chart?
  5. Thanks I will look one in the 500-600W range. I calculated my setup using Ryzen 5 1600 (Outer vision for some reason don't have 3600 as an option) and they suggested UPS rating is 800 VA (with a 449 W PSU) (https://outervision.com/b/dENZf0) I just need one to protect my main rig from circuit breaker tripping in the shitty dorm room … Somehow the dorm lender thought putting 5 rooms on a tiny 10A breaker circuit is a good idea (Grid is 220-230V so that is a mere 2300W, someone plug in a Vacuum or hair dryer and pop goes the breaker)
  6. So by that metric, I don't need a 700W UPS, a smaller 500W should be fine? I calculated my current setup using CoolerMaster's site ended up just 416 W (Newegg gave me 421W), plus small 1080P 23 inch monitor, one small external drive, and some head room maybe 500W is enough?
  7. So I have a 650 W system (3600+ GTX970, eyeing a RTX3070 and 5600 in future) needs a UPS. Now, do I need to match the wattage of the UPS with PSU? Or I should be fine as long as the VA capacity is sufficient? E.g. VA calculation (650W computer +50W monitor router)/0.8 = 875 VA But APC 900VA UPS is only rated to 450W??
  8. From what I have read it is a m.2 wifi card. And people on reddit have successfully upgraded it. Check the chipset and Make sure you use the correct form factor. You maybe able to reuse the antenna connectors. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/94854/intel-dual-band-wireless-ac-3168.html Personally I will go with intel for better wifi but as long as the interface is correct it should work.
  9. I tried to run MemTest with XMP disabled, Windows showing 2133. Unfortunately it's still showing errors... (The info still showing XMP but maybe it's just RAM's XMP info... There is no setting in MemTest toggles it)
  10. Well my desktop started to spit out bluescreens, not very frequently but there is tell tale sign something have to do with RAM. I have the sticks running XMP for the last one and half years in my Aorus X570 Elite with a AMD Ryzen 5 3600.

  11. My current backup drives are quite full now (1x 4TB ST4000DM004 and 1x 4TB WD40NMZW WD external drive sent from BackBlaze as a data recovery drive) Both have some 600 GB free space left. My particular use case is: I usually back up my files once a month, after copy and pasting, I leave the drives connected to the computer for a few days so BackBlaze can sync up. After that I discoonect the external HD and turn off SATA power to the internal desktop drive, completing my 3-2-1 data backup scheme. I have no plans to switch to a NAS since Backblaze won't back up NAS device
  12. And guess what I went for corsair for two reasons: 1, it's 10% cheaper (duh) 2. If I get more corsair stuff in future I can sync them up using Icue (especially if gigabyte give up fixing their RGB fusion....)
  13. Welcome to my pre-2020 upgrade, again, now I have placed order for CPU, Mobo and PCIe storge...the only thing left is RAM (I am Keeping my graphics card for now) Here is a list of what I have Gigabyte Aorus X570 elite Ryzen 5 3600 (yes, I switch to the red side muhahahahah) Adata S11 pro NVMe So, I am looking for a 2x8GB DDR 4 3200 kit But really there are only two contender: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO or G.SKILL TridentZ RGB It seems Corsair's LEDs are brighter but with some imperfection when set to full white color (a YouTube video compar
  14. Final update: I actually went for ADATA S11 Pro which have Dram is only 8USD more expensive than the dram-less lite (aka XS6000). I can live without a Big Mac meal .
  15. From the poll and paper-data it seems a cheap NVMe SSD will be the winner, especially that means I don't necessary need to reformat the Samsung and reinstall apps on it again. (I am making a significant upgrade, jumping from Intel to AMD, as well as jumping though 11 years old CPU/mobo, so it is recommended to reinstall OS, plus now I can use UEFI and GPT instead of stuck with legacy BIOS and MBR boot drive...)
