IMO, a surge and spike protector is little more than a fancy and expensive extension cord and therefore, a waste of money and should be avoided. Instead, I recommend a "good" UPS with AVR...

Yeah, those look like they will work.

Umm, somewhere between 9 and 11. ;)

I note it says the legs are 24 inches. I am sure that means the remaining length is 8 feet. And I can tell you I sure...

Right, it has unfiltered electrical pass-through so that would work - electrically. But it is for rack mounting and it has IEC-320 C13 output receptacles...

You always have to worry about dust because regardless, any fan that exhausts air to the outside must pull air in first. And dust will come with it. Though with your case having dust filters, you...

Note when I said most cases are the same way, they all are the same way, but some cases have an extra mounting hole so you can flip the PSU.

Also note that power supplies generate heat. That's...

See, that's what I mean about it does not matter because what good is a case air intake and filter on a case bottom for a PSU if the fan faces up? Note too that 1 of the 4 mounting screws for the PSU...

My personal opinion is that it is your choice and that with a quality, brand name PSU like that one, there is no risk of overheating or causing damage. Note the only thing really happening is the fan...

First, kudos for wanting to put your system on a UPS. IMO, every computer should be on a "good" UPS with AVR. Remember, with extreme high-voltage events like excessive surges or spikes, a surge and...

Like that make sense?

Right, because after you connect the main 24-pin cable, ATX cable and drive cables, you have so many cables left over to deal with.

Because finding the bag of spare...
