    Prime is bigger in size and has more cables. Kukuha lang ako ng prime kung enthusiast ang setup ko like two videocards, maraming nakasaksak sa motherboard na high-end parts, etc.

  • Good day sirs/mams,

    May mga questions lang ako re UPS for my build (since 2017). Lately kasi nauuso nanaman yung brownout dito samin pag gabi, usually mga 1-3 times na ilang seconds lang. Naka AVR lang kasi ako. Upon researching here and google, hindi pala basta bastang kahit ano na lang na UPS ang pwede, especially na naka Seasonic M12II 620 Bronze ako.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, pero pag active-PFC ang PSU, ang need (or compatible) na UPS dapat pure sinewave?

    Tumingin tingin kasi ko sa mga dealers. Muntik na nga ko bumili. Nagdalawang isip lang ako kasi mahal, 6k+. Then upon researching nga, potek mas mahal pa pala yung pure sinewave, 20k mahigit!

    So next question ko, sa PSU ko ngayon, it's either magluwal ako ng 20k+ or wala na lang? Or may iba pa bang way?

    APC ang magandang brand, pero may iba pa bang mas affordable and trusted din?

    And lastly, according to my specs here:

    - AMD Ryzen 5 1600
    - ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS
    - GSkill Flare X 16GB (8GBX2) DDR4-2400
    - Samsung 850 Evo 250GB
    - Seasonic M12II-620 EVO 620W 80Plus Bronze Fully Modular
    - GTX 1070
    - Sony Bravia 1080 40in

    ilang watts ang need ko? ok na ba yung around 500W? Bale desktop and TV lang naman ang naka-connect.

    Thanks in advance po sa makakatulong!

    nagka-issue lang yan sa Vega GPU.

    Nag-kick in yung over current protection pag high power draw using Crossfire configuration.

    No issues kung Simulated Sine Wave lang UPS mo. It would still work kung magkaroon ng power outage. Been using Prime Gold for the last 3 years with an APC 1000av UPS, wala naman ako na encounter na issue during power outage.
  • @Airnzah

    Ang pinakamura na nakita ko nasa 14k-17k. Leibert at Eaton brand On-Line Double Conversion UPS. Mga enterprise/datacenter computer/networking equipment suppliers nagbebenta.

    APC Smart-ups line-interactive UPS 20K pataas. Cheaper kung yung mga refurbished pero di ko alam kung reliable yung mga yun.

    Nakabili ako ng Cyberpower Pure-Sinewave Line-interactive noon pero hindi na ata available locally ngayon.

    At least 1000VA UPS kaya yung rig mo.
  • Patulong po! San ba nag papa RMA ng unit? I have created a ticket on Helix pero hindi raw sila distributor nung nabili kong psu? Kinontak ko ung seller ang tagal sumagot. More than 1 year na ung unit since binili ko.

    I see. Buti pala. Although may mga nabasa lang din ako na totally di gumana yung sinewave UPS nila sa PFC na PSU nila. You're probably one of the fortunate ones. But thanks for sharing sir! It's good to know na may pagasa pala. hehehe

    Noted sir thanks for these suggestions. Yes top notch nga talaga APC but it's good that there are other quality options for less din. Will definitely look into these.

    Kung hindi Helix then JT Photoworld yan, kasi sila lang dalawa ang distributor ng Seasonic sa Pinas as far as I know. Yung for RMA ko rin na Seasonic PSU galing JTP pero di ko na pina-RMA, parang buwisit kasi process nila. Di man sumasagot ng email. Hindi worth yung time ko kaya bumili na lang ako ng ibang PSU.
  • ^bwisit po talaga yang jtp na yan pag dating sa rma.

    naku nakakatakot pala yan boss. i'm still using my 650fx gold lagpas 2 years na.




    eto siya ngayon nakalabas sa bahay niya. was experiencing random shutdown kasi, recently ko lang na-figure out kung ano culprit ng random shutdown ng pc ko. inakala ko rin nga na pwedeng yung psu ang salarin pero buti nalang hindi.

  • @moyg

    Don't worry sir. By further reading, tulad ng sabi si @galj specific lang ang tinamaan ng issues ng first focus. Mukhang di naman magkaka-issue ang simple users.
  • naku nakakatakot pala yan boss. i'm still using my 650fx gold lagpas 2 years na.


    Yung issue sa Seasonic Focus+ is yung overload / over current protection when using Vega based gpus under certain (extended) load. Kung di naman Vega 56/64 GPU mo, wala ka dapat alalahanin.
  • Pwede ba ako mag claim ng warranty kahit 2nd hand ko nabili yung seasonic psu? complete package with receipt.


    Btw hindi pala under ni helix yung psu ko, so i think kay JT Photoworld/JTP Xtremetech siya kasi sa EasyPc siya nabili

  • okay ba yung Seasonic Core GC550?
  • @teyr

    i think okay naman. gold efficiency. new line na budget yata yan. mas mura sa Focus G series.
  • @songerph
    andito ka din pala sir! sige, yun na kunin ko. 1st choice ko talaga is the s12-ii due to limited budget. buti nakapagbasa din na old tech na sya. tho mukhang reliable pa din naman.

    salamat paps!
  • hehe. nakakalat lang tayo sa tipidpc. it's good to take advantage of new tech. yung s12 kasi bronze efficiency. dun ka na sa gold! hehe. check mo website ng seasonic. puro gold na ang minimum.

    Gamit ko pala Seasonic Focus GM-750 Gold!

  • Thank you Paps @songerph. baka itry ko nga itong Core GC650. Parang ticking time bomb kasi pc ko ngayon with a generic PSU mula nung binili ko pc ko nung 2015.

  • Hello mga boss, need ko pa po ba ng high quality AVR / generic AVR ? Once or Twice a year lang po nagkaka brown out sa lugar namin. Thanks mga boss...

    Total watts : 384w
    PSU: Seasonic GX 650w
  • ^
    Omni servomotor yung gamit kong AVR. 1000w. Ayokong umasa sa generic.

    Walang kinalaman ang AVR sa brownout. Kung power interruption ang issue dapat uninterruptible power supply (UPS) ang gagamitin.

    Ang AVR ay designed mag-compensate for voltage fluctuations, whether mataas or mababa. Hindi mo malalaman ang mataas na voltage unless nagmo-monitor ka ng voltage using a voltmeter. However, voltage drops obvious kasi nagdi-dim or off ang lights, and kung bad enough nagrerestart ang computer. Kung hindi stable ang voltage sa isang area dapat gumamit ng AVR. Kahit sa areas na stable ang voltage magandang idea parin gumamit kasi hindi naman 100% of the time stable ang voltage, meron parin panahon na may voltage dropouts or even excess.
  • Hello po, ask ko lang if okay ba yung SEASONIC CORE GM-650 650W Semi-Modular 80+ GOLD PSU. Wala kasi akong makuhaan ng Seasonic Focus 650W Full Modular 80+ Gold kaya nagsettle na lang ako diyan. Just wanna know if malaki ba difference nila (not really into the semi / full issue but overall performance nila) or magsisi na ba ko haha anyway, here's my full specs for reference din.

    AMD Ryzen 5 3600
    Gigabyte B450 Aorus M (AM4) Motherboard
    Gskill 16gb (2x8gb)
    Palit rtx 2060 super gaming pro 8gb / Gigabyte rtx 2060 super windforce 8gb oc
    SEASONIC CORE GM-650 650W Semi-Modular 80+ GOLD PSU

  • Seasonic Focus GM-650 Gold wala rin? Semi-modular yun.
  • nakupo. mga kawawang talong kayo kapag nakatyempo kayo ng napakaraming lemon units ng Seasonic. Wala kwenta rma nila. nagtuturuan kung sino responsible. Dapat inaasikaso ng Seasonic yan. Dapat pa nga nagaagawan sila sa responsibility. Dapat may incentive sila sa Seasonic mismo kung may napa rma sila. tsk tsk naalala ko nung nagkaproblema ko sa 660watt Platinum Series ko. backread kayo. Kaya lang ako may natirang 1piraso na seasonic psu now kasi kapalit lang to nung pumalpak ding seasonic psu na fully modular platinum nabili ko sa PC**b pero diko na ginamit, backup nalang. naka thermaltake na ko lahat.
