i dont know what these mean but are they sufficient not to blow my pc up?
anyways the build is as follow!

Over current protection monitors a group of wires (a rail) and will shut off the PSU if those wires combined have more current and power than is desired. Over power protection checks the amount of alternating current from the wall, and if that is too high it shuts down the PSU. Over voltage protection checks if any of the voltages on the wires (3.3V, 5V, and 12V) are too high, and if so it shuts the unit down. Short circuit protection goes off if impedance goes below 0.1Ω. Basically, it'll trigger if something is likely to burn due to wires touching wires they shouldn't, or stuff being plugged in improperly. Over temperature protection, you can guess what that does.

Point be told, all PSUs are required to have some of these, so this unit is nothing special. Many units fail to implement safe trigger points for these protections, though, so the protections are only good if verified working properly by a professional reviewer. There are a lot of things we don't know about this PSU, but spec-wise on paper it is sufficient for the GTX 960 and your system.
