(2 answers)

20 pins and 24 pins

True or False?




PC Power Supply Units (PSUs) may accept an AC current of 110-120 volts (standard AC current in the United States and Canada) or 220-240 volts (European AC standard). A PSU might have either a manual selector switch on the back of the device for adjusting the supplied voltage (these types of PSUs are referred to as fixed-input devices), or automatically adapt to the supplied AC voltage (auto-switching PSUs).

True
