Electrical Furnace Exploding???

    Hey everyone, first of all just joined and not 100% sure that this is posted in the right place, so I apologize in advance. I have been playing FTB for a couple of weeks on survival now and kind of learning as I go. Whenever I run into a problem I just pop over to a different world and test some things out to make sure things will work. I have set up the infinite lava system with the pump and liquid disposers transporting it to my overworld from the Nether. I have 7 geothermal engines being powered by my lava tank. The geothermal engines are fed into a MFE currently until I can get the necessary mats for the MFSU which is just a couple more diamond. As of right now, I have the MFE powering 4 electrical engines connected to my AE system. However, when I connect the MFE to my electric furnace with 2x ins gold cables, my electrical furnace blows up. I am only using 2x ins gold cables. There are no other cables being used at this point. I went over to my creative world to test it out and my electrical furnace doesn't blow up and I pretty sure I used the exact same setup. Any ideas on why the Electric furnace blows up every time I connect it to the MFE with 2x insulated gold cables?

    Thanks for any help in advance! I greatly appreciate it

    You've used excessive "voltage"

    With Industrialcraft 2, the power described as EU has 3 levels of voltage; LV, MV, and HV. The reason why your furnace is exploding is because it takes LV power without the upgrades. If you upgrade it, you can hook-up your MV power coming from the MFE.

    You need to convert the MV - 128EU packets coming from the MFE into LV - 32EU packets which is the maximum packet size the furnace can receive. This is done with a LV transformer (wood and some copper cable). Learn this stuff fairly comprehensively or you will have exploding, expensive machines.

    No fun. Well fun, then no fun.
