I recently had to buy a rare spare motherboard for a machine in my home and found one in America.

I live in the UK and our electricity system is different here, will it affect the board at all or does it not matter?

Thanks.

It shouldn't, because the power supply handles the AC to DC conversion, and that should already be of European specification.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
