Ups wattage

lior1111

Go to solution Solved by Jurrunio,

under max stress 8700 only draws 150-175w (even 8700k only draws 200-230w) while 1080 with the most ridiculous power limits only draw 250w. I see no need for even a 750VA UPS, not to mention more than that

Hello, i recently bought a 850va ups for my i7-8700, gtx1080 pc, and a friend told me its not enough. A ups calculator shows that the recommended amount is 750va so i took 100 more. He told me that when the pc is on stress it will go much higher than 850va..i know alot about pc parts, but i know nothing about ups and how it works.. I would be glad for some help, this ups is still in case and returnable.

This.

 

Now, if you need your PC be on longer then just shutting down to save work.... as in you want to game THRU the power outage... then you need to up the VA to 1000 or more.

It'll remain on, I've had this happen a few times over the summer.  The only reason I realized my power went out is because I lost my internet connection.

 

At 850 you'll have enough time to close out of applications and safely shut down your computer.

 

Limit the amount of devices hooked up to your UPSs battery though.  Monitor and PSU is really all you need.
