Never heard of that brand and doing a Google search doesn't reveal anything either. The product description that you give states that the PSU is 80+ certified but I can't seem to find it on the 80+ official PSU list... So it would definitely be smart to be wary...

well seems like returning it is not a possibility so best choice is to just keep a watch for it if everything is functioning right then you got nothing to worry about. psu tester might go long way.

It looks pretty bad, but then you shouldn't need much power really. If you can return it, it's probably a good idea. If you can't, it should run, but cheap PSUs are never really worth the hassle.

If it's made from venison then you really are screwed.

Jokes aside, you shouldn't be pulling anything like 600W (cpu+graphics probably won't pull much over 300, everything else is trivial really) and if the specs are correct you have two 12V rails of 22A for a potential total of 528W on 12V. The specs on cheap PSUs tend to be incredibly optimistic, but it's likely the thing will run.
