Default Motherboard voltage/use overseas

Hi,

Im thinking of mailing my cousin in australia a motherboard for his desktop. will it work for him voltage wise/PSU connection wise?

Im thinking it's just the power supply that is different from country to country but just wanted to make sure first.

Motherboard should be fine. If you send him a PSU then you would have to buy one where the voltage can be changed

I honestly haven't seen a PSU yet that you couldn't change from 115 to 220, or vice-versa.

Lilke Tommy_boy said, the motherboard will be fine overseas.

I've seen some cheaper ones which don't have the option, they must have been Australian made :P
