[SOLVED] Can I rely on this PSU?

I am putting together a home server soon and I have been second guessing my choice of PSU. It is a be quiet! pure power 400w, I picked it because it was a good fit spec-wise (among the choices I had), but now I am worried about its reliability in a 24/7 environment. Am I running the risk of frying any components? Is it possible this PSU may decrease the lifespan of some components? What happens if it fails and just how badly can it fail? I want this server to last a long time, so I am a bit worried. If it matter, the computer will be hooked up to a decent UPS. Thank you in advance.

My bad, it's the pure power 11.
As long as 400w is enough for what you need it should be fine.

Included protection circuits are UVP (under voltage protection), OVP (over voltage protection), SCP (short circuit protection), OPP (overload protection), OCP (over current protection) and OTP (overheating protection). Also, a built-in surge protector safeguards the power supply against voltage spikes, guaranteeing maximum safety.
