hey,
i am using a psu with active power factor correction(corsair cx600 v2),
i am using it with a cheap ups with AVR ,today i plugged up the ups to a accurate multimeter, to check wheter the AVR (automatic voltage regulation) was really doing its job.
ac power supply in our area is 240v @50hz, but it does fluctuate till 245v sometimes, but when this happens the AVR does something i did not expect
it steppes down the voltage to 210v thinking that it is a surge i am sure it is not in battery power at that point it is the AVR that is causing the problem,

so the ups's avr is causing a voltage fluctuation of +-35v to the computer of 210v - 245v and this drop or rise in voltage occurs very qiuckly.
so will my power supply get damaged?or will the active pfc counter this?

There is nothing to worry about! The psu can handle a wide of input voltage.

i mean the rise or drop from 210 to 245v occurs very quickly,so will this be a problem?
please help......
