I have to admit, I had one of those exploding Antecs. Scared the sh!t out of me because I was holding the PSU in my hand when I plugged it in and it popped, threw sparks out the vent and really, I...

As I noted, if you follow the link in post #9 above, there are some folks there with a lot of expertise and experience in resolving high DPC latency issues.

I looked there first then realized many top mounted cases don't say top, but most bottom do.

And that only counts new cases sold today - not what is in existence and I note many PSUs are bought...

:( No where did I say it was bad. My point was that the maker claims the supply is designed to meet published specs at 40C. And that was never tested.

What seems to be forgotten, or ignored, is...

That's an impressive PSU from a company that had been known for cheap stuff.

Aesthetics don't really mean much to me (I like to pay attention to what's on my monitors, not what's in my case) but...

:eek: What? No! That is WAY too high! What did you use to check?

140ms is 140,000s and you want it under 2000s (2ms).

IMO, those surge and spike protectors/power strips are little more than...

Assuming you have tried the headphones and speakers from a source other than the external DAC, not sure what else it could be after swapping motherboards, and reinstalling Windows too.

A different motherboard, and disconnecting the front panel ports should eliminate the case as the problem. I don't think it likely this can be a PSU issue, but agree to swap in another PSU just in...

I don't know how happy it will make your computer or monitor power supplies but it seems something like this (http://www.x-shade.com/collections/all/products/1300-watt-power-inverter) would work.

Higher power capability in no way is an indicator or quality, reliability or longevity.

No, not as a general rule. It might be true with Acme 1200W but not with ABC 1200W. Just depends on the...

Ah, my mistake. Thanks for that. So either passive or active PFC is fine. But no correction is not - at least for supplies that draw 75W or more. That actually makes sense.

I've been doing some reading and there are different types of inverter AC units - one of which is the type you describe. So apparently it (the compressor) works harder during high demand times and...

I can only generalize and say that the information is just like that you would get from any tech support - and it depends on the person you talk to.

But frankly, If I am going to spend more for a...

I don't see why - a real-world power fluctuation/dip is not going to wait for a zero-crossing.

Why should there be? It is not up to the ATX standard to establish test criteria. That would set a...

I would think it sure isn't doing them any good. Dirty power may not be bad, but it makes sense that clean power is good.

IMO, it shouldn't be causing your PSU to hum, so it already is extreme.

New PSU Test Criteria Suggestion

Typically, the battery kicks in when the power drops or becomes too flakey. It depends on how extreme (dirty) the mains power is whether or not the batteries will keep...

Huh? I meant what I said.

Your AC is NOT running non-stop from 8PM to 5AM. The fan may be, but the compressor is cycling on and off "dozens of times of day".

I am assuming the buzz only...

This is actually what I was afraid of - that is, the UPS kicking over to battery every time the AC cycles on. That could be dozens of times of day and on hot days, may not allow the batteries to...
