Hi. I'm new here. My problem is that I'm moving from europe to Canada soon and I want to bring my computer with me. Because the voltages are different in europe i will need a new psu. basically i want to get my computer over there and swap the psu,
the question is will it work??
thanks in advance for any responses

It should work if your hardware supports it... Why wont you sell your computer and build a new one when you move... That would be better...

Doesn't your PS have a tiny switch on the back for power? You likely will only need a new power plug... about a $1 likely.

Power here in North America is 110 to 120V 60Hz. You just slide the switch on the back of the psu to the 115V position.

Just double check the PS. Make sure it is 110/220. There are some PS that are only 110 as well as only 220.
220 does 110 and can survive, 110 doing 220, well, that acidic smell never quite goes away.....
