Lately in my house, i have been encountering some split second to a second electrical shutdowns (power surge? power spike?).

but here's the catch. My room light turns off then turns on , my Air conditioner shuts down completely, my router/modem restarted,..... but my PC is still on?????? wut?

is my pc fine? because i'm surprised it didn't shutdown or either restart...

 

my PC PSU is corsair CX-600 and i live in Indonesia with 220v on the power lines.....

If the power outage isn't long enough for the caps to drain, it'll stay on. Your PSU is missing some safety features though.

This is legitimate grounds for a 24 hour ban...

If you get regular power surges why don't you unplug that thing when you are not using it just to be safe until the stuff gets sorted out.
