This looks like it’s noisy? :slight_smile:

It is in my basement, so it is a bit noisy but I can’t hear it from the living portion of the house.
My big FileCoin rigs are far noisier (ThreadRipper 3990x) although they help keep the house a bit warmer.

Had to install the storjnode this way because of the protruding cables on the cases’ side - I originally planned to fit it between the UPS and the other server :frowning:

Nice little setup you got there :slight_smile: do you like the cyberpower ups? Was thinking of ordering one too!

Cool UPS ^^
Do you know how much Watt-hours it can deliver when it’s fully charged? And at what maximum power (watts) ?

I have been running it for about 1 month only, so far everything seems okay. We rarely have any power outtages here in Germany, so I don’t expect it to be needed that often :smiley:

The quality of the supplied software was important to me and I really like it. (Used APC before - their software only shows logs when the UPS is connected, so when the last APC unit died, it didn’t tell me the reason because it would not connect anymore…utter crap).

It is rated for 1500VA @ 900w which should translate to 0.6h at max load

Cyberpower UPSs also have a faster transfer to battery time than their main competitor.

Can confirm in field testing. We have about 5 APC and 7 Cyberpower, all the “desktop” models (APC- BX1500’s | Cyberpower CP1500PFCLCD), and are all PFC rated and aren’t the super new ones currently for sale (think they keep changing the shell but the guts are the same). I hear the CP’s transfer faster than the APC’s time and time again when I’m in an office and the wind starts to whip up.

I acknowledge the $20-40 price increase for a CP vs APC, but I filled this one under a “you get what you pay for” when pitching the cost to finance in the company (and to get a higher WAF at home).

Edit- Also the BX1500’s we have deployed all seem to have that annoying coil/capacitor chirp issue that plagued them but luckily is only noticeable when staff don’t have headphones or a radio on.
