I have a Spacer 550W ATX V2.2 PSU (link here: https://www.spacer.ro/produs/sursa-spacer-550-300w-for-550w-desktop-pc-fan-120mm-1x-pci-e-62-3x-sata-1x-eps-44-retail-box-sps-atx-550/), my current build (stock clocks and voltage; I don't want to overclock) is like this:
  • MSI A320-M PRO
  • Ryzen 5 1600AF
  • GTX 1660 6gb
  • 2x8gb DDR4 module
  • other thinks that draw power:
    • 2 usb 2.0 devices (small speakers and a wireless mouse&keyboard receiver)
    • 1 sata SSD
    • 1 7.2K RPM hdd
    • 2x 120mm case fans 1x 60mm case fan (with no ties to mobo)
I'm planning on gpu mining ethereum 24/7 (with short breaks).
I'm wondering if this could accelerate the PSU going bad and taking away other components.
The PSU is not rated but on the box it says it has protections for:
  • SCP (Short circuit protection)
  • OPP (Overpower protection)
  • OTP (Overtemperature protection)
  • OVP (Overvoltage protection)
  • UVP (Undervoltage protection)
I'm not sure if this affect in anyway it's lifespan but I included them for info.
It also says "PFC: yes" which I do not know what it means.

Not at all. Dodgy, low-end garbage. You're not getting something competent at this price level.

Though I guess it's a consolation njoy has added the word "Meets" to their fraudulent 80 Plus badges; this company has been notorious for fake 80 Plus badges. So they're now being ever-so-slightly less dishonest to the mainly Romanian customers they've been ripping off for a long time.
