Wouldn't put something like that anywhere near my system unless I want find out what burnt components smell like.


Get a corsair CX 450m. It's pretty cheap and reliable.

I think it would work but very limit and dangerous to kill mobo,  I would highly recommand to get a got 500-550 W PSU

400w dynex psu 

Only review I found for it was from 10 years ago that said that it was a relabelled Huntkey Green Star 450W sold by Best Buy under their own brand (Dynex).

 

Quote

Dynex 400 W is in fact a relabeled Green Star 400 W and since we had already reviewed the 450 W version from this series – which exploded when we tried to pull its labeled power 

...
This is probably the worst “branded” power supply we’ve seen in our life

If it was a fire hazard 10 years ago, imagine what it is now.

 

Replace it. ASAP.

Thanks, bought the system with a 1050 2gb and it worked fine, but when I upgraded to the 1060, I remembered people saying that overall , you want a 20% overhead for power, and when I looked at the power supply, I realized it might do me some good to get a reputable psu
