Posting your PC specs will help someone here to help you.

The UPS units you linked apprently have a modified or stepped sine wave output (they don't come right out and say what the output waveform is but what they do say suggests it is a modified sinewave). Corsair PSUs do not play well with anything other than pure sine wave (or, at least, they didn't in the past). You might want to check on Corsair's user forums to see what UPS will play well with a Corsair PSU. Many of the responders there work for Corsair. Corsair makes good PSUs so don't let finding a compatible UPS discourage you.

@tokiyo, Post your machine specs that you are going to use. Worry about the sine waves later.
