I have a Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold - 1000W from early 2011. It works fine on my OC'd 2500k and have had no issues.
I am planning to upgrade to a AMD 3900X (everything included) in July/August 2019.
While the 1000W is great, i was wondering if there have been any "real" changes in PSU tech in the past few years that would require me to get a new one.
I am fine with getting a new one. Just wondering if getting rid of this one would be waste of perfectly a good PSU.

While you can use it, the real decision is whether you should. Seems like you plan to spend quite a bit of money to build a new rig. Why not get a more current PSU to power the new config? Why take the chance?

PSUs can and do become defective over time.

ok thanks guys. I guess the age would simply make it more prone to failure and it would not be worth it to take the risk with a new high end system.
