    I'd reinstall Windows

    I think the free upgrade from Windows 7 to 10 may be over.

    If it is just a gaming machine, you might take the risk; but if you use it for work or even just email you might not want to risk being without a computer.

    From the motherboard, as is the case for my 10 year old HP Compaq 8000




    Good point, but one can just pass the 12V forward so only need to generate 5V

    How much DC to DC need be added? i.e. how much of the motherboard uses the power supply voltage directly these days?

    Why will DDR5 require a new PSU? Power supplies these days are just a source of power (as opposed to voltage) as on-board voltage regulators produce the voltage needed. Then again that is good reason...

    I think the Guru has this covered; running a 220V only supply at 110V works, but don't run it beyond half rating as the input current is doubled when moving from 220V to 110V

    Because if your neutral and live surged together to say 500V, there would be no relative difference and so no suppression.

    The diagram was just to show what you would lose by not having a ground connection for single phase (why the interest in 3 phase?)

    A remote switch is just one more thing to maintain, lose, break.

    A surge protector, although not all of it will be functional due to no ground; for brownouts a voltage regulator, although the supply itself should be fine if it can cover 110V to 220V without a...
