Hi so I've a psu that doesn't have an efficiency rating, and its 650w and has multiple protections except OTP, btw I'm going to put it in low end system i3 9100f and a gt 1030, should I be concerned about heat ?

While you're likely to be OK-ish since it's a very lower power system, as a rule I -- and many others -- will not issue any such advice without knowing the exact PSU, not a vague description of some of its claimed features. And that goes double when there are signs that it's a very low quality power supply.

Ah... Probably why a lot of people use Mercury. The company is based in Dubai. Most of the good PSU companies are based in Europe, Taiwan or the U.S. and, unfortunately, the middle East isn't on their radar.
Sadly, do you think xigmatek or huntkey worth it over mercury ? since we have a lot of Xigmatek and huntkey powersupplies too

The EVGA BQ is hardly an amazing PSU, but it runs circles around your current option and the choices you gave. It can actually be considered a power supply, not a power supply-shaped object.
Can i know how yall know which AMAZING psu or TERRIBLE ? since im confused because everyone says different ? i just check the website specs like protections etc ...
2nd question when you say its terrible or low quality, do you mean it will blow up ? or fail ?
