Is BR1000G-IN enough for my PC

This was originally posted on APC forums on 10/5/2013


Please reply, I would like to connect my high end PC and 27 inch monitor to this UPS (BR1000G-IN).

My specs are

Intel i5-4670k,

Gigabyte Z87- UD3H Motherboard,

Zotac 760 gtx Amp edition Graphic card,

G Skill Trident X - 8 GB DDR3 RAM,

1 Bluray writer,

1 Samsung 840 SSD 120GB,

1 WD Black 1TB

4 internal 140mm cooling fan,

6 USB devices,

PSU - I would use is 600 watt 80 plus gold rated smps, is that enough?

My requirement is a 5 to 10 backup, so that I can save my work and shutdown my PC.

Will the UPS be overloaded by my PC specs, thanks.

You'd probably want a bit of a buffer for potential overloads when the system is working a little harder at certain times.

I used the tool, the options are a bit older smile. However I assume my PC will give BR1000G a load >85% . Does this much load affect the UPS lifetime and performance undecided, Thankssmile.

I recommend keeping the load at less than 80% so look at the 1500 instead of the 1000. Running at 85% will not affect the lifetime but as the battery ages its ability to sustain the load for X period of time can change.
