USA computer to EUROPE

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,

I bought components and build a computer in the States because I was working here for 6 months. Now I am going back to Switzerland where I come from. Of course I am bringing my computer with me...

Now my question is that I don't know if I need to change something or not...

1. My power supply is a Corsair TX750, in the manual it is said that the power supply will automatically switch power.

2. My burner is an Asus (but it doesn't really matter) and I don't know if it is going to work with Zone 1 (NTSC) only or european too. There were no manual coming with the burner. I consider buying another burner in europe as it's pretty cheap ($20-$30max). Are games going to work properly?

3. I am willing to buy a dell monitor E2311H (link under) from newegg and ship it as well. Is there any specification in the voltage of a monitor that I should be aware of? Or just using a european cable will make it? I see in the tech specs 100 - 240 VAC, 50/60Hz does that mean it will switch automatically?

In advance, many thanks! You guys are the best

Voltages for PSUs and monitors should switch automatically. All you'd basically need to do is get a power cable that fits in a Swiss wall socket.

Hey mate, so sum it all up you won't have any problem. You will have to buy two plug adapters for the PSU and monitor because American plugs don't work in Swiss sockets, but this should be a 5$ thing. The DVD won't have any problem either, I think some years after all the "zone" debacle, some wise man cracked the region codes, so all manufacturers gave up on that restriction; all recent DVD readers are unlocked afaik.

cheers

For the journey, I'd remove the GPU. As it's a lot of strain on the mobo, to move it with it installed
As for the power! I'm thinking you'll be fine!

While I was writing this post I thought to myself... If I read on the manual that the PSU switches automatically and it says 100 - 240 VAC, 50/60Hz on the monitors... Then why am I writing this post...
Thank you
