    All homes here are all grounded and have surge protectors. The problem is they dont work all the time, even in Denmark. Fuses will get tripped and the power will be shut off, but not always in time to protect your computer. There is still enough of a surge to do serious damage. No matter what you do to protect your computer there is still a risk. This is very rare in the US as well, but not even a UPS will always save your computer from the average of 500,000 megawatts in a lightning strike.

    Sorry to here, We had our house burn to the ground when lightning hit a powerpole transformer out on the corner of our property. We were insured but as we all know insurance never comes close to covering what you lose.

    Similar thing happened to me long time ago. The psu worked fine, but the mobo died. Whit a UPS your rig will be safe. Maybe you will be lucky enough to win an upgrade from PureOC. Good luck!

    I think I will sell my I7 1366 980X Chip on Ebay & use the cash to get new AMD setup.
