I recently upgraded my CPU/mobo/ram to ryzen 5 3600x and 16GB RAM. For the time being I will still be keeping my old GTX 970 but might upgrade in the near future.
I have an old seasonic s12-ii that has a broken powerswitch and can be RMA. So my question is would this PSU still be good enough for my new setup or should I upgrade to some newer as I heard that the s12-ii is an old design.

The Unit is old and even after the RMA can be used however i'm worried about which version of the S12II you've got. You will need at least 500W from a reliable unit for the entire system and if you do want to recycle the unit in your new build, you will need to disable Deep Sleep state or S6 in BIOS.

If you have the funds, I'd advise on getting a new unit from Seasonic.

What is your current specs looking like?

What are some good PSU for this build? I saw a lot about OCP and OTP on all rails, no idea what those mean so I have no idea which PSU has them.
