Justin Puder

How many of you guys run a 1000W PSU and live in an apartment? The breaker is constantly blowing and shutting my system down while gaming. I ordered a 900W UPS, will that be enough? The only items that are plugged into the wall outlet is my computer. That’s the highest I was able to find at Best Buy locally. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Hannes Thiessen
Apartments typically will mix and match both plugs and lights, next time it happens, see what else that is plugged in dies, and see if you can find a different place to plug some items in. Could just be the breaker is overloaded by more than your system.

Trevor Hoft
That’s why you buy platinum for the better efficiency so it doesn’t draw so much to make the 1000 watts

Justin Puder

Trevor Hoft yeah I have gold

Hector Lazaro Nogueira
Have less shit turned on and it’ll be fine.

Payton Matlock
Something else pulling on that circuit. 1000 watts is not enough to trip a breaker

Daniel Lewandowski
You know if you run 1000watt or 900watt and you only consuming 800watt why would that make a difference ?

Diego Emede
if your pc is trippin the breaker... MOVE.

Justin Puder

Diego Emede just signed the lease lol

Ed Stoop
Replace the breaker with something heavier and see what else is connected to it, like your fridge or something

Jesse Kingsmill
you probably have multiple outlets on the same circuit.

Teetat Saechang
No, your PSU doesn't pull the "rated max wattage" all the time, it only pulls what it needs. And even though I doubt you can go up to 1000w while gaming, I don't think it is enough to trip your breaker either. So I don't think a UPS will resolve the pr… Xem thêm

Jesse Acosta-Brown
Teetat Saechang exactly!

Jesse Acosta-Brown
I have a 1k watt, but thankfully in a house and no issues. Besides that it is a 5+ year old psu. Lol

Bill Benham
What are you doing with it that you need so much overkill? Most hardware, games, and software would not need that much power.

Justin Puder

Bill Benham full water loop OC CPU/GPU, I don’t utilize the full 1000W but it does happen while gaming.

Cody DoomTiger Smith
You need to get better security than plugging a beast into the wall...

Aaron Reyes
No your breaker is the issue, get it inspected!

Michael Cook
1000 watts at 120 volts is only 8.3 amps. Most house breakers are 15 Amp. Something else is pulling a bunch of current.

Dennis Bryant
Check your fridge the next time it flips. 

Tj Wohlrab
Thats not how electricity works

Travis James Snider
You waisted even more money.. regardless if your computer only needed a 600w .. a 700w 800w 900w 1000w wouldnt draw anymore from thay outlet . It only uses what it needs ..

Michael Bryant
Travis James Snider however... PSUs are more efficient at about half load...

Travis James Snider glad they have a return policy

Jonathan Panzarella
That’s not how PSU’s work. They only pull as much power as the system requires from the wall and not a steady 1000W. A 500W PSU and 1000W PSU can power the same system if it only pulls a peak load of 400W. What’s most likely happening here is that your apartment power sucks and you may need a new breaker. Or, you have some other power-hungry device on the same circuit as your PC (TV, heater, etc.). Do you only have 15 amp circuits? Or do you have a 20 amp you could try to use?


Justin Puder

Jonathan Panzarella I’m not sure if I have a 20 amp but I do have a coffee machine plugged into the same zone as the one breaker that blows. However that’s only in use for 30 sec when I make coffee. Other than that it is not in use

Jonathan Panzarella
Justin Puder Got it. It would have to be a bad breaker. Perhaps ask your leasing office to have it replaced since it keeps blowing.

Mike McClain
I'm an electrician and this definitely sound like you have other things on that circut. A computer will not pull enough to trip a breaker. Chances are very high that if it's an older place and you have a microwave, space heater, fridge or anything else high draw, thats causing the trip. Could possibly be a bad breaker, but usually bad breakers won't hold at all. Sometimes can though. goodluck

Justin Puder

Mike McClain well I will say when I reset the breaker and turn on my computer sometimes it immediately pops… I need to have the apartment complex look into it.

Mike McClain
Justin Puder usually older apartments fit as much as they can on one breaker. My old apartment had like 5 breakers total. One for the kitchen, one for the bathroom, one for the heating and cooling, one for the living room and 1 for both bedrooms. Often… Xem thêm

Yeah so I have a similar system. And a super shitty old apartment. Never had an issue. I’d contact the management and see if they will look into it. Something might be wrong with the outlet or breaker.

Yue Xing
that is some really weird tubing

Justin Puder

Yue Xing yes it is, fixing it soon lol trust me Ik

Natasia Lynn Simone
If you are popping the breaker either something else is drawing power from that breaker and overloading it. Or your breaker is old and is weak because of it.

Ryan Osmond
Sorry man that’s your low amp on your plugs and knowing it’s a apartment the wires are junk or something

Joe Isler
Your circuit breaker could be defective. Try replacing it with the same rating as the original, don't put higher capacity because your wiring is only designed to that load.

Frank James
Breakers also get tired after tripping so often and can no longer carry the Amps it was rated for.

Patrick Benson
The PSU is only gonna pull what the components are demanding. Sounds like poor wiring in the apartment if you ask me.

Neeladri Mukherjee
Patrick Benson so if you have a 800 w psu and pc demands only 500w then psu will supply 500w. The maximum the psu can supply will be 800w. Is that right? Just asking.

Dom Rench
Neeladri Mukherjee psu will only supply what the components are demanding. So if it’s 500w max then yeah.

Keaton Kelley
Bad breaker…

Daniel Panozzo
You probably need a new breaker. You'll be lucky to draw 4 amps if you're using 240v.

Mike McClain
Daniel Panozzo U.S. runs 120 power supply. If his PC was running at its full 1k watt psu, he would be drawing around 8 amps, which would still not trip a breaker. It's honestly most likely other things on the circut causing an amperage overload trippin… Xem thêm

Why do you use 1000w? I'm planning to go for 1200w Revolt X for dual system, also why is your breaker uhmm breaking? Sorry I'm not an electrician

Matthew Penman
U need an electrician lol

Perry Lovell
I’m an electrician. The ups is a good idea. Also plug the pc into an outlet on a different breaker. You can leave the monitor and other peripherals plugged into the existing plug. Use a 14awg or lower (12awg) extension cord for the pc.

Justin Puder

Perry Lovell thanks!

Kurt Venable
So let’s assume you are using all 1000 watts, you are not but let’s just say. That’s just over 8 amps. Add your monitor and that’s way over estimate and say we are at an even 10. The smallest breaker that can be installed is 15amps. Assume your also have your lighting and a fan on the same breaker that would still only get you to around 13-14 amps if everything was maxed out. What this tells me is you have a breaker that is going out, not that you are having a problem with your pc taking too much juice.

Nikolai Frandsen
1. Your max power draw on what I can see will barely be 600w max, I have a pretty similar setup and have a PSU power tracker and even with my 3080 running at 120% spikes and a 4.9ghz 9900k on 9 fans etc highest it’s run is 630w. 2. Something else in your house is probably causing the trip. Or it may even be your PSU being aged. Which breaker in your house trips? Is it the one for the room with your computer? If so, check all other plugs in the room, try to remove all other things in that room from power only running your computer and try a full session. If it doesn’t trip…. It’s something else in the room. Be careful because I’ve had a random Lamp in my room that didn’t show any signs of shorting but it caused a huge breaker on the board to catch fire. Find it before it gets worst…

Jonny Mercer
Nice looking build but there's way too much tubing. You don't have to have 2 tubes for each component, you can literally tube between them and there won't be any difference in temperature.

Vai Papps
Jonny Mercer this is how you tube it for the water block. He just needs to make it look nicer and have the bottom radiator turned around.

Justin Puder

Vai Papps yeah agree I need to clean it up, it’s on the todo list.

Jonny Mercer see this is how I did mine

Simon Gale
Bigger breaker 👍🏼

Erick Iglesias
Simon Gale ser that csn caught house fires lol

Jamie William Barnes
According to an electrician I know, Computers have a good amount of earth leakage. I don't know if that's true or not but if you've got a GFCI breaker then that could well be the cause. Either way I'm pretty sure a UPS would solve the problems

David Gerritsen
Look for heating Devices toasters /coockers washing machines/dryers i.e they are usually the power drawers

Justin Puder

David Gerritsen there is a washing machine but it was off

Wasim Zemerly

Eric Renaud
We don't have this issue in the UK 🙄

Neil Bond
Eric Renaud My oven issue was in the U.K., much higher power draw, though.

Mike Carlson
At a standard 15 amps, 120 volts, the breaker should provide you with 1800 watts of power capacity before threatening to trip. Even with a 1000w PSU, you are likely only pulling 600 or 700 watts with a 350 watt GPU (RTX 3080 Ti) unless you have two GPU… Xem thêm

Jon Smith
I’d call your landlord

Justin Puder

Jon Smith I created a service request, so we will see what they say.

Snapshot Gaming
ive had this prob before. youre breaker is on a 50v prob. a 75v breaker will fix it. if you have a lot plugged in, maybe a 125v. u may have just one thing plugged in that outlet, but the whole room prob runs off the same connection, so all the outlets in that room run to the same breaker!

Brian B Joseph
so just because it's on a separate plug doesn't mean it's a separate circuit.
does the whole breaker go or does only a part go? for me half my house will go dark and half will stay on, I have to plug it into a different wall circuit

Justin Puder

Brian B Auger a portion goes out not just the plug

Brian B Joseph
Justin Puder go to every outlet that goes out and see what's plugged in
when I run my microwave and PC at the same time it blows

Rodolfo Camarena
Buy an UPS

Len Ma
Why u get 1000w PSU with only one GPU

Bill Benham
People think overkill is good, but in reality, you just consume more power and the effect on gameplay is minimal, yet it costs you more money to do the same thing everyone else is. That is in itself a failed mindset for running a system that is good and does not cost you any more than it has to.

Danté Bianchini
Bill Benham a psu will only draw what the pc is requiring. Just cause it’s a 1000w psu doesn’t mean it’s drawing 1000w.

Bill Benham
do not just go by the rules you think are for the PSU, there are other rules in consumption and physics that play into it.

Justin Puder

Len Ma had a 750 before I went with a 1000W so I can overclock the CPU/GPU and run the full water loop safely

Aaron Jackson
The size of the PSU makes no difference. It all comes down to how much power draw you have. No PC should trip a breaker

Mick Partington
Maybe fit a breaker in between PC and wall socket,Reset it yourself then 🙂

Le Khan Hammad
Check with an electrician, a clamp meter should detect if it's tripping because extensive load or if the breaker is just faulty, there's no way you're using all 1000w with a 3080, even if you've an 11900 something CPU paired with it...

Michael Pullman
I got some old outdated breakers it handles my pc alone but if you throw anything else in it'll blow. Things like heaters will kill it.

Victor Valente
Journeyman electrician here 🙋‍♂️….you need to turn off AC window unit and tell your wife stop using her hair dryer while your gaming. Lol Seriously, as u know by now. A pc is not enough to trip that breaker. The breaker is telling you something is wrong. Either you have too many things plugged in that circuit or something is wrong with outlet or breaker.

David Mayo
Victor Valente like he said most likely an old breaker to weak to hold the amps it’s made for! I’d start by replacing the breaker and if it keeps tripping after there’s a fault somewhere between the last plug and the breaker drawing to much!

Christopher Adam DeLong
i run a 600w and have water cooling in mine plus rgb fans and strips and never have an issue with under powering etc.

Justin Puder

Christopher Adam DeLong min spec for my GPU is a 750 so that’s the main reason I went with a higher PSU

Matthew Blyther
and lords from my understanding are not responsible for upgrading a breaker box because u want to run a highend pc. As long as everything in the apartment is up to code he has no reason to fix that for you. That would be on you to replace with the land lords permission. Second note everyone talking about old breakers my house is close to 100 years old and still uses old school bus fuses. Our grow room uses a 1000w grow light plus a 8inch 600w exhaust fan and have never tripped the breaker unless the electric stove and dryer were running.

Cody Richter
A 1000 watt psu doesn’t use 1000 unless it has to. The amount of power it used depends on what’s inside. So, we can’t tell you if the 900 watt ups is enough. Constantly switching to ups power isn’t a solution though. A normal home outlet in usa can put out 1800 watts. So, the sol

Dave Ladd
A ups isn't going to fix the problem.. too many devices on that ac line..

Justin Puder

Update on situation - Apartment complex replaced the breaker switch. So far everything is good. Will probably return the UPS when it gets delivered!

Kris Isaac
The problem is the high load you're putting on one circuit. You need to move your computer to a different breaker circuit, or reduce the load you've currently got on it.
