The psu is on the weak side however it might work if the volts on the 12v rail are at least 11.85v. If the psu is from one of those junk brands then perhaps no.

Also need to look at amps, make sure its not really weak. If you type on here what the label says about the 12v rail we could give you a better idea.

yes, but dont touch anything while its on. I would suggest checking the PSU specs when its off, that way you dont have to worry about fans or needing to unplug cables. Write down the Amperage on the 12V rails and the make and model if you can find it.

14a------15a -----28a----30a -------2a -----0.8a
Its a Cooler Master
