Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

How old is the PSU that your friend has? Even if the unit was brand new, you're advised to buy into a reliably built concurrent generation PSU to power your internals/components/build.

That's a 14 year old PSU. Although it was a decent unit back in the days, now it isn't. Hardware changed from a more static load to a much more dynamic load with powerspikes and an old groupregulated unit can't handle that. Also there are some protections missing. No OCP, OTP and UVP.
