TX850 and Surge Protector Question


I want to know if I need to use a surge protector on the Corsair TX850.
I've always used one on this PC, with a 600w PSU, but I don't know about the TX850 one.
My surge protector has 300v, I don't live in the US and the power from the electrical socket is 220v.
Should I plug it directly into the electrical socket or buy another surge protector?

Thanks in advance.

  1. It may not be required but it wont hurt anything to have the surge protector. It just adds a layer of protection in front of your power supply so if something happens the surge protector is most likely to fry instead of your PSU.
  2. But I also saw that it may be worse because then it'll have 2 power filters, and the PSU can regulate the voltages better and faster, because this PSU has the same characteristics has a surge protector.

    The power where I live rarely goes out, and here we unplug everything from the outlet when there is a thunderstorm.

    Forgot to mention that the PSU is the V2 version of TX850.
