Default Help with setting input voltage for PSU

I got a Antec TrueBlue480W for Xmas and i live in Melbourne, Australia (240V from the mains).

I'm really confused about how to set the input voltage on the PSU. I found the controls, a red switch at the back which has two settings, 230V (European) and 110V (American).

Now i had trouble deciding how the switch worked. If the numbers 230 were showing did that mean it was set to 230? Or did you have to move the switch so it covered over 230 so it wasn't showing?

Usually i would have just tried it, but i was double checking due to the fact that it's $150 (a fair bit). If i put it on 110v by accident, i'll fry the PSU.

So just to repeat, I would like to know: Do you set the switch so that it's covering the 110 label and the 230 label is showing? or so it covers the 230 label and the 110 is showing.
