Quick question, because you guys are al so helpful, and this website rocks.

I live in Canada, and will be moving to Australia. I understand our outlets are 110V and theirs are 240V. If a PSU has an intake of 100V-265V, does that mean it will work with any wall outlet in that range of voltage? I'm looking at a 550W Corsair High Current Gamer PSU and I want to build my rig before I move and bring it there (mATX, very small), but I don't want to buy a PSU here and find out I can't use it there. Also, my father is very doubtful it will even work there, but I'm pretty sure that because of its voltage intake, it will work there.

It has a voltage intake of 100V-265V.


Thanks guys! :D

Do you mean the Antec High Current Gamer (available in 520W but not 550W)? http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?Family=MzM5&lan=us

The Corsair Gaming Series is available in 500W, but not 550W: http://www.corsair.com/power-supply-units/gaming-series-power-supply-units.html

The Corsair Enthusiast Series is available in 550W: http://www.corsair.com/power-supply-units/enthusiast-series-power-supply-units.html

All of those models auto switch to any voltage in their operating range. What is the specific model that you are looking at?
