Bought a powersupply from newegg, comes with Non USA plug

This is the first time I encountered something like this. So, I ordered corsaie hx 1200 psu here. https://www.newegg.com/corsair-hx-se...82E16817139205

The plug seems to be Type F, and I have extra AC power plug I can use, but I am not sure if it will be okay, or if I need to return it, I double checked and the product code has "NA" at the end on newegg. I waited all last week and this weekend to receive this only for this to happen.

I don't want to risk smoke or anything when I plug it in.

edit; it says 100-240v 47-63hz, so that means it should be okay right?


If you come across cute ginger girls and have pics pm me them :3

look for the amps on the cord most cords have amp rating wrote on them then compare it to the one you got from newegg website is showing 7.5-15amps so you might need a better cord if yours cant handle 15amps.

Input Current 15 - 7.5 A

All modern PSUs with active PFC should be fine to run in either the US or EU specs for mains voltage. Just plug in a standard power cord and you should be good to go.

Even though my extra power supply cords are only rated for 10 amps, why input current is 7.5-15 Amps? Hmm maybe it will be fine if im just running one gpu for now.

A 10 amp cable is good for 1150 watts from the wall. You'll be fine.

If for some reason Corsair doesn't help, which I find very unlikely, you can always check out your local goodwill for a power cable, or you can get something like this off of Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0027JRMD0..._gJiXEbNB66JKH

this. should be fine.

most of my AC cables are easily 5-10 years old. I prefer the older ones as they flex better.

Hell, I'm pretty sure my 100 foot rubberized extension cord is as old as I am, and its basically the same thing.

so, assuming R0ach doesn't show up, the OP is fine

Add me on Steam, same name
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.

haven't read a better fact in quite a while on OCN.
