    is it a red switch?

    it's for switching between 110-230v AC input. It should be set to the voltage of the country you bought your psu in.

    do not change the setting.

    Never heard of that before. Do you have a picture?

    @Techno Pride, the 115V-230V selector can come in many colours. Some more expensive PSUs do not come with one.

    Well, it could be true that most PSUs are red but I have seen some which are not, so best not to make the assumption. Don't want to fry your PSU =P.

    Sorry hor, Singapore is 230V so is UK. It is the States that use 110V.

    * EDIT *

    See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mains_electricity

    Nice picture to show which country use what voltage.

    * EDIT *

    It is very important to ensure the setting is 230V if your mains supply 230V. Otherwise, you will burn the PSU and maybe your components.

    Hmm... did you try switching yours to 110/115V?

    if you have a measuring equipment or multimeter with you, well you could try mearsuring the socket, based on what i see..it can be an additional power input or also an additional power output,but you need the meter to measure it, it the socket is giving out 12volts when the power is on..then it is a additional power output..if the measurement is 0v then it is an input.
