Hello all,

I am newbie at computer hardware, but have been trying to learn to eventually build my own system one day.

My Question:

I have a new PSU: what sort of power cord do i need for it?

Some things i noticed when checking the specifications: Input Range : 230Vac Voltage, 5A Current, 50Hz

Now i do have an old power cord which fits the socket, but it is 250V 10A and the Hz unknown, is this any good to use? I would prefer to get a new one but would use it temporarily

I have tried searching the internet for any answers but haven't found anything, please help!

Thanks for your time for reading.

Yes, its good. The voltage rating & Ampere rating is higher than what your PSU require so it definitely can handle the maximum that the PSU will draw. Do not worry about the Hz.
