Using a power supply US and EU
« on: August 28, 2019, 01:07:50 PM »
Hey everyone I am going to be moving around a lot over the next year so I want to build a smaller computer that I can bring with me. I wasl ooking at the MINI-ITX build from this site https://techbuyersguru.com/1500-ultra-compact-mini-itx-gaming-pc-build and was wondering what I ned to do in order to plug in the power supply https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Supernova-Modular-Warranty-123-GM-0650-Y1/dp/B07JFLGGQ6/ref=as_li_ss_tl?&th=1&linkCode=ll1&tag=thtebusgu-20&linkId=377fd7d404386fc865daff8d3b58106d&language=en_US in both the US and the EU? I'm totally naive about this.

Welcome to the TBG Forum, redenvy!

That power supply, like all modern power supplies, are designed to run off either 120V or 220V. In Europe you will find 220V. What you'll need is a different power cord, and the PSU side of these are universal. What you'd need is just the correct plug for your country. Here is an example product that would work for many European countries.
