UK Power Supplies
I recently moved back to the States and while I was over seas I built a computer with a UK Power Supply, now there's no switch that would switch it from 230V to 110V but it does say that it is auto switch. Now I do not know if I should rely on this auto switch thing, but can my question is, can I use this power supply in the U.S.?

RE: UK Power Supplies
Will there be any tell tale signs that the voltage is to high? And I didn't state it in the original post but there is no range. For example 110-230V like some PSU's have, mine just says 230V. Should it still be ok?

The AC full range input and the auto-switch is telling me that the PSU will have no problem working with 110-120V.

If anything, if the voltage is too low, it simply won't start or it will start and shutdown after a second.

RE: UK Power Supplies
110-230 indicates that the system will work on 110 or 220 lines. You have no worries as long as the unit doesn't fail.
