iam using a corsair vs450 power supply which has an input voltage of 200-240v

iam connected to a solar inverter which only gives the mains voltage when it runs on mains
and has a low cut off of 180v

during summer the voltage may drop to 190 v so is it safe for me to run the computer with the power supply has anyone experienced running on slightly lower voltage than the power supply specification

It does have a under voltage protection so should shut off. If it doesn't, and it doesn't shut off from instability, you're components will die soon. Dirty power is up there with the deadliest killers.

I was asking if it will run 10-20 volt out of spec
