I highly doubt it. If i'm reading those specs correctly, that PSU has only one 12V rail and only 12 Amps on that rail. Unless your system is 5V heavy (which not very many systems are these days) I have a feeling you might be seeing some sparks, a little bit of smoke and maybe a burn mark on the wall in behind your PC.

Should be OK at standard speed, but may struggle if you overclock!
