Moved from the Uk to US

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey there, as the title has implied I've moved from Sunny Uk to rainy LA (oh wait..) Seeing as my computer is on its way over now I was wondering if the PSU would work fine if I just purchased an american power cable and whacked it in? Or do I need to buy a new one... My current Psu is this one pretty much http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-ste...er-supply.html But I think the slightly older model.

Anyway thanks for any replies

What power supply do you have. Modern ones have a auto detect so you should be fine.

If it doesn't, some older PSUs have a switch to change the voltage on them.
