Hey guys,

i update my system with a new case, better cpu(5 1600 -> 5600x), mainboard and ram. Everything else stays the same. My Power supply is the be quiet! Pure Power 10 500W 80PLUS SILVER and it is 3,5 Years old. It has enough power for my system i guess but my question is, should i change it just from the security point because it is 3,5 years old? or isnt it a problem? My PC was running the last 1,5 Years almost everyday for around 12 hours cuz of covid. Im red that a old Power Supply can kill my hardware if it is to old and dies?

My Components if someone need it for measurement or so
5600x
1060 6gb
16gb Ram
2 SSDs, 1 HDD

According to this>>>
That PSU is a pretty good PSU and I think you can get more than 3.5 years out of it.

^^^^This is something you could do if you want to give yourself some piece of mind.
The main voltages.....12,5, and 3.3 should stay within 5% of these values always...under idle....and heavy load.
....but if you aren't having any issues....I think they are most likely OK.
