So I live in the Middle-East and we use 240v/50Hz wall socket as opposed to 120v/60Hz or however much the US uses.
I bought a PSU from Amazon.com which I imagine would ship with an "American-style" plug which would probably not fit on our wall sockets.
I was wondering could I use a step-up transformer to fix this problem or would this harm the PSU?
I'd probably try it with just the PSU plugged in without plugging the PSU into anything to reduce "hardware casualties" if a fault were to happen.
We have to use transformers to play Xbox here because the plugs don't fit into our sockets.
So what do you guys think? Will a transformer work with a PSU or how can this dilemma be solved?
Hi - what's the make & model PSU? Many of the modern PSU's automatically detect the
wall socket voltage & all you would need is an adapter plug or pick up a psu power cord
locally where you live.
