Default Power Supply Question

There is a switch on the Power Supply where you can switch from 115V to 220V. My PC has been running on the 115V setting but I always wondered what would happen and if it made any difference if the switch was on 220V. Does this matter? I don't want to fry my PC....

Youd fry eveything if it was on. (most likly)

That setting is for europe.( or other countries)

Don't screw with it.
