    Default Light flickering during huge Wind - how can i be sure that pc is fine.

    Hello. I have an question. There was a huge wind in my country yesterday. Power was on . But there was random 1 second lights dimming in my house. Tv, Computer was still on, and laptop ( laptop without battery ) was still on.


    And is this harmful to pc?


    How can i check that nothing damage in my pc?
    Ah i dont have UPS.




    So it can harm pc if during wind my lights in house flickered for split second?
    But like i said pc,laptop and tv not shutdown during this day. Only lights in house flickered few times for split second,thats all.




    The important clue here is , the lights "dimmed" instead of actually going out.




    Psu is Corsair 750RM and MB: Asus Z170-P, Graphic card 1080 Ti so thats why i am worrying ; )

    As long as there was no power surge you should be OK
    I wouldn't worry about it but I would be sure to have a surge protector/power strip
    behind it for protection from this in the future

    Next heavy storm (lightning storms too) turn it off.
    Unplug the PC and also the microwave if you have one.
