Quick questions on a XS 1300

This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/1/2009


Recently bought one at clearance from Circuit City, so far it's nominal but just wanted to ask a few questions about it.

1. The QC shows that it is tested from around June of last year, is that acceptable?

2. The LCD shows a load of only 18% (150 Watts), which only concerns me because I have a quad core and dual 8800GTs. I have not played any games on it yet, so I would presume it would skyrocket if I play anything. Is that accurate?

I have not done any running down of the packs (as it is two in series) on the UPS, but I might do so tomorrow morning.

Makes sense, but it just tells me that the GPU makers are advertising the PSU makers, as I only get 230W load while gaming (although the secondary GPU is disabled) which is only 30% utilization of my 750W PSU.

Actually my Xbox 360 Elite reads ~110W, which is a little lower than the 120W I've read elsewhere. So it's not that far off.

june of last year would be fine. the battery would be stored disconnected and thus should just need to be charged, if anything. the UPS wattmeter is not as accurate with measuring small loads as it is with high loads. the lower the load, the less accurate it is.
