    Question Will my PSU work in North America?

    Hello there Hexus! I'm currently living in the U.K and am planning to move over to Canada in the next month, I will be taking my rig to the left with me, apart from the case. The only thing that worries me so far is that my PSU may not be compatible, as it was bought here. The PSU in question is an OCZ ZT-650w, and on OCZ's site, it does say the operating AC input is 100-240v, but I'm not really a electrical guy, and I wanted to come ask you guys to be sure. So, the question is, will it work in Canada? Thanks guys.

    By that specification, yes, and modern PSUs can normally autoswitch with both American and European voltages.

    Just to echo aidanjt, yes it should work in North Americe with no problem as it has auto-switching.
