So basically I live in Denmark (EU) and I found a really great offer from US, even after duty tax - but I was wondering can I use a US PSU in the european union?

I mean isn't there a chance to mess the system up due to our differences in voltages?

What's the model number of the PSU?

Please don't bypass the swear filter again, thanks.

Thanks, just a stupid question: Am I needed to buy a converter or can I buy a cable and plug it in? The PSU can't convert the voltage, can it?

What's the voltage and frequency your country runs?

In Denmark the standard voltage is 230V and 50hz. The power sockets that are used are of type F / K.

230V 50Hz is within the range listed for input on the PSU, it will work fine :thup:

I recommend buying a proper power cord, not just a travel adapter. Many travel adapters are unsafe to use with heavy loads for prolonged times. The PSU itself should work just fine.
