How to protect the power supply?


Stable operation of the power supply unit ensures long-term computer life without failures. About the fact that there is something wrong with the power supply, you may just guess by the noise of the fan, warm air blown by the fan unit, frequent reboots and system shutdown.

For the power supply to work stable and as long as possible, you need to adhere to the following rules:

1. Proper power conditions. Do not use usual extension cords to connect a computer to the network. Use special filters, and best of all, if it is uninterruptible power supply. Do not connect other powerful devices, such as a microwave oven, heater or iron to the filter, which is used for the computer. If possible, take care of the qualitative grounding line.

2. Proper temperature conditions. There are two factors that affect to the process of maintaining the regulatory temperature – the state of the fan and power supply unit capacity. The fact that the current capacity of the power supply is insufficient, can be found at an increased temperature of air that is blown out of the power supply by fan. This means that it is time to replace the power supply by more powerful.

To prolong the life of the fan, periodically clean his blades. Mounting socket should be lubricated from time to time. In summer, due to the increase of air temperature in the environment the power supply may overheat and shut down from overload.

To avoid this, you can use the additional cooling devices, for example, placing an additional fan inside the system unit. If this cannot be done due to lack of space inside the case, you can use a special fan, equipped with PCI slot or fan, designed to be placed in the inner compartment with hard drives.

To avoid incorrect circulation of the air inside the case, you need to ensure how tightly all the plugs on the back panel are closed. In addition, it will help to prevent the system unit from the dust.

Often there is a situation when layer of dust, accumulated in the power supply, is able to conduct electricity at a certain humidity. This can speed up his failure. To prevent this, vacuum your power supply periodically. Revealing the block case is not necessarily. It is enough to use one of the holes of the ventilation cover for access into the power supply.
