Your PSU will be fine and your hardware does not need to be overclocked to run the program, remember you are only checking to see if the computer runs ok under a full load while you have a constant power supply from the mains electrical supply, if all goes well the present UPS should be upgraded.

This suggests that your hardware is ok and the problem is indeed with the budget level UPS.

 

Can you post a link to where you may possibly purchase a new UPS from, we can take a look and suggest the most appropriate UPS if one is available to you from any link that you may provide.

Nope and reason being it is only stepped approximation to a sinewave technology which means that there will be a slight delay between the power going out and the back up battery kicking in, the APC Back-UPS 1100VA, 230V BX1100C-IN is also not listed as being PFC compliant and only has a 1 year warranty, specs here

 

also give some more suggestions..!! 

 

 

Like the help we provide here good manners are free, please afford myself or any other member that may chime in with a suggestion for you a simple please or thank you.

 

If you do not have an add on video card and not running Windows 10 something like the CyberPower CP900EPFCLCD Backup UPS PFC Pure Sinewave 900VA/540W 2 x UK Sockets 4 x IEC

 

If you do have an add on video card let us know what it is, if you are running Windows 10 CyberPower CP1300EPFCLCD Backup UPS PFC Pure Sinewave 1300VA/780W 2 x UK Sockets 4 x IEC

 

Take a look at the thread here and in particular what Lady Fitzgerald explains and you will see the importance of having a pure sine wave and PFC spec UPS in India.
