Yes. The ATX12V is the ATX12V standard, period.

Thats gotta be the cheapest PSU Ive ever seen.

Are you really going to trust a 550watt PSU for 11 Vat? I Sure Hope Not.

It will work but I would not put that in a machine. (too cheap - could wreck your system)

Don't Hijack threads.

Noone ever said that any random 400 Watt PSU wouldn't work. The question here is quality. If you want a Ticking time bomb as the heart of your computer, than go right ahead. (Refering to really cheap and Generic power supplies)
