What type of UPS backup power does evga recommend to use with it's power supplies?
 
Looking at getting this one below. I have read it's better to have a PFC SineWave UPS.
 
CyberPower CP1000PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS 1000VA 600W PFC Compatible Mini-Tower

I own EVGA SuperNOVA 750 P2 PSU.

    I have no idea what evga would suggest, but my suggestion is the tesla power wall, 14kWh

    https://www.tesla.com/powerwall

    It may be a little expensive to start, but you could run your computer for months on end with no issue, lol.

    No seriously, I don't know anything about battery backups. I know $7k would be a little rough for computer power. I will be watching this thread to see how it goes with other users that have experience.

    Done a ton of research on the subject, and I also came to the same brand and lineup. Except I'm looking to get the 1500VA version. Just need to pull the trigger.

    Only a tad bit extreme for a UPS.

    APC batteries have not held up in past units, so I decided to try Cyberpower this time
     
    After reading many tech articles, I've decided not to settle and use True Sine wave UPS - hope to get longer life from the PSUs in Rig 1&2 in my signature

    I have this one 
    https://www.amazon.com/CyberPower-CP1000AVRLCD-Intelligent-Mini-Tower-Features/dp/B000QZ3UG0
     
    I'm running SLI
    I can tell you that this UPS is not enough power  for my Computer and 2 screens 
    I should NOT have bought this one
     
    My Recomendation............
    If you want to future proof yourself then
    purchase no Less than a 1000 W UPS
     
    OR don't waste your money and just get this

    I have used smaller UPS like this one in the past. 
     

     
     
    Now i'm debating on getting a UPS or put that money towards a new 24-27"  1440p gsync monitor.

    When I bought my ROG 27" 2K monitor 
    I was amazed at the smoooooothness and game enhancement I received for my money

    If I were you I would put your money into a 144mhz 27" 2K monitor
    You wont regret it
     
    Just dont buy the 1080P 
    not much of any difference  
    make sure it's the 2K version
     
    Best of luck  in making your decision

    I own that model. Bought it in 2012 and it is still using the original batteries with reasonable holdup time & passing the self-checks. I would strongly recommend Cyberpower's true-sinewave stuff.
     
    Had too many issues with APC batts lasting 3 years or less. For the most recent APC UPS I bought even the battery original to the unit was bulging and nearly impossible to remove when the APC self-test failed three years in. 


    Have water, will cool.

    Thanks kougar - good to know
     
    Rig 2 is pulling around 750 - 800 watts 24/7  Folding on that UPS
     
    Rig 1 pulls about 1000W on the other UPS 24/7 Folding
