Purchased a corsair cx500v2 500W psu but the power cord that it came with has umm 'cuboidal' pins whereas the cord currently i use has 'cylindrical' pins and my ups too only has cylindrical pins compatible sockets so the corsair's power cord won't fit.
So question is can i use the cylindrical cord to power the psu instead of the one that came with it?
And oh yeah the ratings of power cords are as follows-
Corsair - 13A 230V
Current one- 6A 230V
Will that difference in amps cause any problem if i use my current (cylindrical pins ) cord?
So you meant that those rating aren't so important also. If i go ahead and plug my current cord to the psu and everything works fine then i should not worry about it?
Currently the power cable that i use is this (YP81) - www.signalandpower.com/products/226
The only difference between U.K. and U.S. standards is the shape of the pins, you should be able to use that one no problem, although I dont know what your house supply is, 110v I assume but I dont know what amps your 'normal' fuses should be, ours is 240v and a 'normal' fuse is 3a,5a or 15A dependant on the appliance, if your not sure, ask a local electrician for safety's sake
