I just moved from The Netherlands to the US. I had a PC built a few years ago and I’m not sure if I can just plug this power supply in with a US power cord or if I need to replace my power supply.
it does not have the volt switch on the back but it does say 100-240~ 10-5A 60-50Hz
It’s a coolermaster V850 80 plus gold.
thank you in advance.

Many PSUs no longer have voltage switches and will auto detect the voltage which given this description,
90-264Vac (Auto Range), off the CM website I believe it does.

So yes it appears that PSU will be ok to use with just a US plug.
Thank you for the information!

Clarification for your future posts:

Many PSUs sold in the EU are 230V only in order to save money. Because higher input voltage results in lower current and therefore smaller parts on the primary side can be used. Since 110V (used in U.S., etc.) input results in double that current, the parts of the primary side need to be more robust.

OP's Coolermaster happens to be one that supports full range, but done assume that's always the case.
