Default k on back of power supply?

what does the letter k mean on the back of my cooler master power supply 450 watt? Maybe its a dumb ?, but there is the switch that usually has the two different voltage options, but instead all i see is the letter k printed on the switch

ALAS!!!! My research is complete... After taking this great question and researching it with "google" i've figured out what the hell the "K" means.

Here is a link that I found.
http://www.currentsolutions.com/know...y_spec_o-z.htm

Basically it's a voltage lettering system by Country. "K" stands for many different countrys as well as United States. It refers to 120v.
Check out the link for all lettering for each country.

yeah, i know. It's a work in progress... I've got everything except the Motherboard & videocards.

I'm still trying to decide to go SLI or CROSSFIRE. Prbably by the end of November i'll make my choice.
