I just recently built a pc. Nvidia 970 ssc video card, Asus 970 pro gaming motherboard, corsair 16 gig ram ddr3, Seagate 1tb Hd, DVD burner. Windows 10 OS. I also have the computer on a battery backup. When I go and play games that I have downloaded from steam the battery backup goes in a beeping frenzy. The error that the manual says that the ups is having an overload. The computer is the only thing on it. However when I play games off the Internet computer does fine. When I play the games that cause the ups to go wild eventually shuts the computer shuts off. Now I have tried various things.
Single pulled memory card out testing it then. Same thing happens.
Don't have a second video card to test to see if it is that.
All drivers are up to date including the OS.

Any ideas why the steam games cause the UPS to give that problem.

I even tried doing just a benchmark test and get the same issue.

Please any help would be great.

Thanks

What are the specs on the UPS?  Does the UPS have its own outlet or does it share that outlet with other devices?

It is by itself and the UPS is a cyberpower 450VA. Also in the I am using a 700W power supply in the pc.

Your UPS is for max 260watts and when you play a game or load up the computer it pulls in even more power.

700watts vs UPS 260watts and your 700watt psu might pull in 800watts from the wall at max load any questions ?

Basic math bro -_-

The weird thing about it though is if I do it directly from the wall it does the same thing. That's where I am really confused. Without the UPS connected to the pc the computer just shuts off.

Mibjeebs, as a previous poster indicated, your UPS is not powerful enough in wattage to take care of the computer.  You need a much bigger UPS -- I would consider something rated more than 750W -- 1000 watts would be better.

I'm getting lost in this thread  :)   First, get an UPS that is a little more than your computer load, I think >750W, maybe get 1000W+ rated UPS; test the new unit thoroughly.  Report back if any problems with the computer and/or the new UPS.

Ya started off with the UPS topic now it seems their were two problems going on, hope the mods don't get jumpy thinking were going off topic but it is OP thread, anyways......

 

Just to make the mod happy in this forum plz make a new forum topic under internal hardware OP and will take it from their, describe in as much detail as you can whats going on and what the problem is with the  shut downs and or other computer problems your having with your main system that don't have anything to do with your UPS.
