    That might be a bit much load. Anyway, why do you need to test it with more than the load you'll be using it for?

    Is it true sinewave ups safe for any electric? Including some "electric motor/dinamo"?

    Certainly should be. For simpler items, like a motor, then even a stepped wave is fine for many of them.
    Intel i7-2600k with an XSPC Raystorm water block, 4x4GB Corsair Dominator, SLi Evga-GTX560Ti-448 FTWs, Asrock Extreme4 Gen3, Crucial M4 256GB SSD, Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD, powered by a Silverstone Strider+ 850 PSU in a Silverstone TJ-07BW case.
    I'm not buying EK GPU blocks ever again. (One GPU killed)
