Theoretically, Yes. In Reality... That's where things get dicey. When that PSU fails (not if... when) it will take a lot of your computer with it (unless you get really lucky)... if you just get lucky, you will still have a completely intact home without any damages. It's a time-bomb of sorts.




Not a single one.

You're better off with a Corsair VS550 for 3799 INR. It isn't the best PSU out there by a long shot, but at least it isn't a time bomb.

Or better yet: The Antec VP-450 for approximately 4020 INR. Still not the best, but it's good for the money.

others (some good, some excellent, some not so good):

NO for very specific reasons. It cannot deliver its rated power. It is their 400W unit with an upgraded rectifier and new label. It claims Over Current Protection, yet there is nothing there where it should be for this feature. While it didn't blow up, it did shut down just over 420W, and `12V ripple exceeded allowed values at 420W,
