JeisonRS Posted February 6, 2013 Share Posted February 6, 2013 Hello, I want to know if I need to use a surge protector with the TX850 V2, or if I can safely plug it directly into the electrical socket. I'm currently building a new PC, so for now I'm using my old one, and I've always used a surge protector with it, a 300va one, and this PC has 600w, but it's an old PSU. I use THIS surge protector (sorry that it's in portuguese, I couldn't find a english site that has this) I've seen a line filter (I don't know if that's the correct name in english) that acts almost like a surge protector, but it seems unsafe, because it turns the computer power off whenever it detects a power surge. I don't live in the US, and the power that comes from the electrical socket is 220v. So, what I should do, plug it directly into the electrical socket, use this surge protector, or buy a new one? Thanks in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
